HOW DOES AIR CONDITIONING WORK?

Whether you are looking to install a large multi-unit system for your office space, or you are looking for a small unit for your home, the main principles of an air conditioner are the same.

Of course, your specialist aircon installer will be happy to spend time with you, explaining in detail how to operate your AC system, and this will be set up and customised for your personal requirements.

But with so much information to take on board it can be very confusing, so here we have compiled a simple guide, broken down for you to read through in your own time.

THE COMPLEXITIES OF YOUR AIR CONDITIONER BROKEN DOWN

An air conditioner is used to create and maintain an optimum temperature, and humidity level, in a building. It also contains an air filtration system that reduces allergens and pollutants.

To understand how an AC system works, it is easier to think of it as two separate sides, a cool side and a hot side, located in indoor and outdoor equipment, respectively. These two sides are linked together by a series of refrigerant filled pipes that form part of a continuous cycle.

This is known in our industry as a split system.

A window unit, or through wall unit (mainly used in America, you may have spotted them on the TV), work using the same principles as a split system, the only difference being that both the hot side and the cool side are located within the same piece of equipment.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SCIENCE

In order to cool indoor air an air conditioner uses refrigeration. Utilising the simple law of physics, the refrigerant that is circulated in the air conditioner is a liquid which absorbs heat when it converts to a gas. This process is called phase conversion. A system of coils are used to force the refrigerant to convert between gas and liquid (evaporate and condense) and vice versa, in order to cool the inside temperature of your building and expel unwanted heat to the outside atmosphere.

THE COOL SIDE

The indoor unit contains an evaporating coil. When warm air from inside the room is blown over the low-pressure evaporator coil, via the indoor unit(s) built in fan, the refrigerant liquid inside the coil absorbs the heat and transforms to gas. Fans within the air conditioner then circulate the now cooled air to wherever it is required inside the building. This can be direct from an ‘on show’ air conditioner or via a hidden air conditioner i.e., above a ceiling which is then ducted via ceiling grilles.  Both systems will give the same results however the ducted options are normally preferred as this finish is more aesthetically pleasing.

THE HOT SIDE

To carry on the cooling process the system now needs to convert the gas back to a liquid again. A compressor, which sits outside the building, inside a condensing unit, puts the gas under high pressure and this process produces unwanted heat. The unwanted heat is expelled to the outside atmosphere with the help of the condenser coils and an exterior fan (also located within the condensing unit).

TWO SIDES WORKING IN PERFECT HARMONY

The refrigerant in liquid form is transported back to the evaporator where the whole process starts again. A continuous seamless cycle where liquid refrigerant, coverts to gas, absorbs heat, is compressed and returns to liquid again.

VRF/VRV Systems – simultaneous heating and cooling

If your AC unit is a combined cooling and heating system, the above processes we have explained are simply reversed. To achieve this a reversing valve is all that is needed.  This valve reverses the flow of thermal energy, changing the direction that the refrigerant travels through the system. The hot condenser coils have now become the cold evaporator coils, and vice versa. Warm air is pumped into the room and the cold air gets expelled outside.

AND FINALLY….

Three other components that you may have heard mentioned are thermostats, filters and expansion valves. In simple terms, this is what they do….

Thermostats

To set your room to a desired temperature you will need to use a thermostat. The air conditioner will continue to cool air until the sensor in the thermostat detects that the room has reached the correct temperature. The sensor will then detect when the temperature begins to rise, and once again power up the air conditioning unit.

Expansion Valves

In this article we have learnt that there is a direct relationship between pressure and temperature. An increase in pressure produces an increase in temperature. The expansion valve restricts the flow of the high-pressure liquid refrigerant from the condenser, and controls how much can pass into the evaporator coil. By restricting the flow, the refrigerant has more room to expand in the coil. The expansion causes the pressure of the refrigerant to rapidly drop, and this also causes a drop in temperature.

Filters

As important as maintaining a comfortable room temperature, is the quality of the air that we breathe in.

The filter cleans the air that circulates through air conditioning system. Unwanted contaminants and particulates present in the inside air, such as mould spores, bacteria, dust particles and allergens, will be trapped in your air conditioners filter.

To ensure that this part of your AC system is working properly, it is of upmost importance that they are cleaned, or replaced, regularly. This is advised to be carried out by a specialist qualified air con installer, as other issues which may occur will be spotted and dealt with correctly, such as chemical coil cleans and other items.  This will also uphold manufacturers warranties and increase the life expectancy of each system.

Hopefully, we have now answered your question ‘how does air conditioning work?’. Of course, there are many different types of complex, highly efficient systems out there, for different types of application, so to choose the correct system for your situation calls for specialist knowledge in this field.

WORKING FROM HOME …. KEEPING YOUR COOL

As the Covid-19 crisis subsides and economies can now look to reopen, companies large and small are planning their post-pandemic return to work structure. It is becoming more evident that fewer employees will be returning to the office place, and those that have been working from home will continue to do so, albeit on a part time basis.  Recent announcements from large UK based firms confirm that they will, where possible, be implementing a 3-2 plan for employees, requiring them to work from home a minimum of 2 days per week.

working from home

WORKING FROM HOME IS HERE TO STAY…

Many of us will feel uneasy about returning to the daily commute to the office, the thought of cramming into crowded trains or squeezing into packed lifts is not something we are looking forward to.

Encouragingly, studies show that we tend to work from home in a highly efficient manner.  On a personal level for us, it is quieter, safer, and less distracting. A mixture of working from home and the office, will keep us happy and motivated, and offer a more balanced working life.

Due to the pandemic, we have in effect all been subject to one of the largest experiments in home working and there are plenty of statistics that prove the benefits not only to employees, but also the positive effect it has on the efficiency, productivity and ultimately profitability for companies.

So, if this new trend is set to stay, what can we do to make our home office a place where we can work comfortably and efficiently?

In our previous article 10 tips working from home during coronavirus we explain in more detail what simple measures we can take to improve productivity when working from home. However, coming out of the pandemic, given that the home office is going to become the norm, we look at permanent solutions to make your home office environment a comfortable, productive, and healthy place to be.

HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE

It is especially important to have a dedicated workspace, free from distraction, to maintain focus and concentration levels. For most people this will mean converting a spare room, a garage or quiet corner in a larger room to a bespoke office area. Choosing the perfect office chair or desk is relatively straight forward, but during the working day the ideal ambient air temperature is equally, if not more, important.

Throughout the winter months it is easier to regulate the room temperature, however during the hot and humid summer months, working from home could become extremely uncomfortable. If the space where you are working has poor air quality, then you will not be in a good position to perform at your best.

Leaving windows and doors open for long periods of time can present security issues, distractions from outside traffic noise, or an invasion of unwanted insects, however keeping windows shut, will cause temperatures and humidity to rise quickly, especially if you use heat producing electronic devices.

Maintaining Domestic Air Conditioning at Your Home in UK

The installation of domestic air conditioning in the UK has become a must have for the hot summer months.

If you have recently installed an air conditioning unit, it is of utmost importance that you maintain your unit so that it can perform at its best.  Did you know that some parts of an AC unit including, filters, coils, and fins, require proper maintenance for them to function correctly. Neglecting any necessary maintenance can result in substantial repair bills later on, as well as a shorter lifespan of the unit.

After your domestic air conditioning installation, you will need to perform regular maintenance checks.

Here’s a guide to maintaining a split air conditioning system.

Air Conditioner Filters

Filters should be your top priority. Dirt and debris will slowly start to collect on your AC’s air filters. Not cleaning them regularly can cause that dust to escape into your room and cause health issues. This kind of leakage can degrade air quality and cause severe issues for someone with dust allergy or asthma. Moreover, clogged filters can reduce airflow and system efficiency, ultimately causing your system to malfunction, a costly situation that most people would not welcome.

Air Conditioner Coils

The evaporator and condenser coil can collect dirt from the filters over time, which is why it is so important to clean your filters at regular intervals to avoid this.  However,  despite best efforts, the coils will still collect a certain amount of dirt. This dirt causes a film around the evaporator coil to form, making it difficult for the coil to absorb heat and reducing the airflow. The outdoor condenser coil could also collect debris from the outside. You can easily find the condenser coil in your outdoor unit and check if it requires any maintenance.

Coil Fins

Aluminium fins over the evaporator and condenser coil can be bent easily. A tool called a “fin comb” is available to purchase. Your air conditioning technician can use this tool to make the coil fins go back to their original state.

Clean and Clear Drains

Once in a while, try passing a copper wire through the drain pipes of your system. If the drain is clogged, it will be challenging to reduce the humidity. High humidity levels on the inside can cause your walls and carpet to become discoloured.

Sealed Rooms For Better Cooling

For through the wall or window air conditioners, you should also inspect the seals around the unit.  Ensure that there are no gaps that can allow air in or out as this can cause moisture to collect, causing damage to the seals. Also any gaps can also allow unwanted insects to enter your property and also possible contaminants from the outside.

Winter Preparations

When the winter season is around the corner, cover your wall mounted indoor AC unit. Also, cover the outdoor unit with a plastic sheet or a cloth to prevent any dirt from getting in it.

Know When You Need Help

If you think that your unit requires an inspection by a professional, hire an A/C technician. The technician will help you with any problem in your air conditioning system.

Tips for Wall-Mounted Air Conditioning Installation

There are several important factors to be taken into account when considering a domestic air conditioning installation.  The exact location of your wall mounted air conditioning unit will need to be carefully planned, ensuring that it is installed at the correct height, in an unobstructed position and in a well ventilated space.  An ill-considered installation can result in premature wear and tear, and will often lead to higher running costs, increased maintenance and the unnecessary expense of mechanical failure.

In this article, we expand further on the points raised above and give you some useful guidelines on how to choose the best place to install your AC unit when considering domestic air conditioning in the UK.

Keep the Space Properly Ventilated

To have an instant cooling effect in your house, the air conditioning vents must not be blocked by furniture or any other item. If the vents are blocked, you will not be able to receive the maximum output from your AC unit. For the best results, ensure that there no obstructions near your AC unit. The clearance distance varies from one manufacture to another, however, the general rule is to have 1 foot (or 12 inches) of free space around the unit.

Install the Indoor Unit As High as Possible

When installing your AC unit, make sure that you place it near the ceiling of your room. This rule is based on simple physics. Hot air rises, so the nearer the ground your unit is, the longer it will take to cool the room.  This will lead to increased power consumption, and higher electricity bills.  Placing an air conditioning unit higher will also ensure that there is less opportunity for objects to hinder the airflow, and at this height there is more room to place all the pipes and ducts.

Place the Indoor Unit in a Shaded Area

Continuous exposure to sunlight will increase your AC unit’s workload and can have a negative impact on its performance. The increased workload will eventually result in the premature wear and tear of your AC unit.

If possible keep your curtains and blinds closed, as this can increase the air conditioner’s lifespan and reduce expenses. Install your indoor unit away from heat-generating items, such as bulbs, gaming consoles, and other electronic items, otherwise the AC unit will need to work harder to maintain the overall room temperature.

The Correct Location for the Outdoor Unit

Just like the indoor unit, the outdoor one also requires to be placed in a well-shaded area.  Sunlight, along with the heat that is generated from the condenser, can cause overheating issues.

Moreover, the outdoor unit should be placed on a flat and rigid surface. The unit contains a condenser, a compressor, a fan motor, etc. everything to keep an AC functional. Without any proper support, the vibrations from a poorly installed outdoor unit can be excessive, which can then cause breakage of copper wires, coolant leakage or compressor/condenser damage.

Conclusion

If you are considering a domestic air conditioning installation, please ensure that you have researched and considered the factors mentioned above before the start of the installation process.

However, for a seamless installation, we would recommend you choose a specialist air conditioning installer to guide you through the complicated process. They will help you choose an air conditioning unit that is specific to your requirements, and ensure that it is installed correctly.

Why Air Conditioning In The UK Is Becoming A Necessity

If you are reading this article you have probably arrived at the decision that you need to invest in some form of air conditioning in your home.  Summers in the UK are becoming increasingly hot every year due to global warming and environmental factors. This summer is no exception, we have experienced soaring temperatures and multiple heatwaves. This intense weather has skyrocketed the demand for air conditioners across the country. More people are now adding air conditioning systems at their homes and workplaces than ever before. If this is your first purchase, make sure to keep a few things in mind. Start by doing your own research on available brands. Then, make a list of models and their prices. Here are a few things that will help you get started:

Where to Start?

During the hot and humid summer months a portable fan may not be sufficient to keep your room cool.  You may wish to consider installing an air conditioner, a cost effective and efficient way to keep your room (or rooms) cool and free from humidity. Take time to research the different options such as portable AC’s, window AC’s and split units and consider the one that suits you best.

What is the Best Long-Term Option?

If you want a quality, durable product, it is advisable to consult with an air conditioning professional such as Evergreen Environmental. Our qualified team will help you select the right option tailored to your needs. We will assess your requirements, and after careful consideration will suggest the most suitable unit. We offer free air conditioning site surveys, advice, and quotations to all our clients. We are an established air conditioning installation company based in Essex, we take pride in our excellent reputation within the industry for the quality of our installations and level of service.

I am Installing an Air Conditioning Unit for the First Time – What to do?

Possibly the most important factor when choosing your air conditioning is the sizing of your room and the new AC unit. If you pick an air conditioner that is too small for a room, you’ll not feel much difference in temperature, if any. If your air conditioner is too large for the room, you’ll waste a lot of energy as your system will be constantly turning on and off to try and regulate your temperature.

When determining the correct unit for you we will ask for the exact dimensions of the room to determine which is the best option for you. Our air conditioning specialists will guide you through the whole process, so that you are fully confident. There are many considerations to take into account such as energy usage, the cost of purchase and installation fees and we will help you make informed choices taking into account your budget and individual requirements.

Tips For Domestic Air Conditioning Installation

Domestic air conditioning installation can be a crucial problem. If done accurately, your air conditioner will give an optimal cooling effect. Poor installation can often lead to frequent maintenance problems as well.

You should consider several factors when installing domestic air conditioning in the UK. Wherever you decide to place your AC unit will determine its efficiency.

Keep The Space Properly Ventilated

To have an instant cooling effect in your house, the vents of the air conditioner must not be blocked by furniture or any other item. If the vents are blocked, you will not be able to receive the maximum output from your AC. To make the best of it, ensure that it is surrounded with enough free space and freely moving air.

The Higher The Better

When installing your AC unit, make sure that you place it in a higher location. There is simple physics behind it. Hot air tends to move upwards, so if you install it on a ground level, it will take longer to cool down the room. The result will be you spending loads of money on an unsatisfactory result. Installing the AC unit higher will give you more than enough space for all the pipes and ducts. Plus, being at a higher position means that there will not any objects hindering the airflow.

Place It In A Shaded Area

Having sunlight can be a problem for your AC unit. Leaving your unit in the sunlight will cause it to overheat, hence more work that needs to be done. Too much workload can eventually wear out your AC unit causing instant repair bills. Keeping your curtains closed will increase its lifespan and reduce the overall bill cost. It will be a plus point if your indoor AC unit is installed away from any light bulb or any electronics that would generate massive heat. Your AC unit will need to go the extra mile to keep your electronics cool and maintain the overall desired temperature.

Proper location For Outdoor Unit

Just like the indoor unit, the outdoor one also requires to be placed in a well-shaded area. Why do you ask? The outdoor unit already gets warm from the heat generated by the condenser. Adding sunlight to it can overheat the parts, hence resulting in another expense. Moreover, the outdoor unit should be placed on a flat and rigid surface. The unit contains a condenser, compressor, fan motor, etc. everything to keep an AC functional. Without any proper support, the vibrations can be excess, which can then cause breakage of copper wires or coolant leakage or compressor/condenser damage.

Conclusion

If you are someone who requires a seamless domestic air conditioning installation process, you can always find a trustworthy technician team to work with you. Overall it can be a tricky process if you are trying it the first time. Make sure that you have done your homework and have considered all the factors before making any installations

Residential Air Conditioning: Tips to Help You Save Money

Your air conditioning unit could possibly be the biggest energy-consuming electrical product in your home.  During the hot summer months, you may wish to run your air conditioner on a daily basis. Whilst keeping temperatures down in your home is obviously a huge benefit, the increased electric bills are not. Paying for a residential air conditioning installation is a one off expense. However, maintaining the unit and paying the bills every month are recurring costs.

Here are some money saving tips that will help you reduce the running costs of your air conditioner.

·       Raise the Thermostat

When it comes to air conditioning, a simple rule to reduce electric cost is to set the thermostat to 23 °C or higher. You can start by gradually increasing the temperature every other day. For instance, if you usually keep the temperature at 20 °C, you will have to increase the thermostat gradually up to 23 °C to achieve significant savings.

·       No More Sunlight

Sunlight constantly streaming into a room will increase the room temperature and your air conditioning unit’s workload. The increased workload can result in the wear and tear of the unit and its parts. In simple terms, the longer and harder the air conditioner works, the more energy it consumes. It is better to draw the curtains during the hottest part of the day, than potentially having to pay for urgent repair work.

·       Insulate Your Home

Poor insulation increases your AC unit’s workload; this issue is commonly found in old houses, due to cracks in the walls, or worn or weathered seals. To ensure that your home insulation is up to standards, hire a contractor to perform a home energy audit. The energy auditor will check your house for any leaks and recommend fixes to make your house more energy-efficient.

·       Keep the Air Filters Clean

Using the AC unit for longer periods of time can result in dust and debris collecting in the air filters, and eventually this will restrict cool air flowing into your room or space. The interrupted airflow prevents your air conditioner from keeping your home cool, and makes it consume more energy at the same time. Take the time to clean the air filters monthly, and to change them every three months.

·       Appliances Near the Thermostat

Your thermostat is sensitive to heat, as it is continuously monitoring the surrounding temperature. Avoid placing heat-generating appliances near the thermostat – the heat released from the electronic appliance(s) will increase the temperature around the thermostat. This will keep your AC running long hours to achieve the desired temperature. Electronics such as TV, computers, and lamps should be kept away from the thermostat.

·       To Conclude

Air conditioning is necessary to keep your home cool in the summer. Once Evergreen Environmental has completed the residential air conditioning installation, consider following the tips mentioned above to manage the electric bills.

The Benefits of Air Conditioning Service

Whether you have had your air conditioning unit for a number of years, or whether it is relatively new, it is essential that regular maintenance is carried out to ensure its optimal and efficient performance. This will not only keep your running costs down but it will also prolong its life.

Saving money will obviously be high on anyone’s agenda, especially during the current difficult economic times, but if you are tempted to reduce costs by avoiding the regular servicing of your air conditioner, there are other more important factors to consider before you make this decision. Leading experts report that a poorly maintained air conditioning system could present a significant health risk, as it may be susceptible to collecting allergens and infectious organisms. As air conditioning units are a highly effective way to circulate air throughout a given space, this unfortunately can mean that any such hazards are effectively spread throughout an entire workplace, room or home. Therefore, the proper maintenance of your system, including regular filter change, is essential to prevent circulation of unhealthy air and help protect you working or home environment from these dangers.

Furthermore in these days of increasing environmental awareness and the positive choices we can make, ensuring that your system is running as efficiently as it possibly can, will help protect, and make less of an impact on, our planet.

The frequency with which you have your air conditioning system serviced will depend on several factors, including the model, its age and how it’s used.  Your specialist installer will be able to advise you but what is the importance of regular service and maintenance, but how would you know if your existing system requires attention?

Signs that your air conditioning system is poorly maintained may include:

Leaking water

Loss of performance

Bad odour

Increased energy bills.

If you notice any one of these issues then it is time to call in a specialist for advice. If your air conditioning system has not been maintained regularly, this may prove to be a very costly experience, which is why we recommend that you consider investing in a planned service and maintenance package.
