What Does Heat Have to Do with Cold?

How hot and cold work together

We all know that heat rises, and in the summer, when the warm air holds more water vapor than in cooler months, it can be not easy to cool off. The heat is still there, though. So, to comfortably maintain a comfortable temperature indoors, we need to rely on two opposing forces: heating and cooling.

Energy Star Certified Central Air Conditioners

When central air is used to provide cooling, it can be designed to incorporate two types of cooling technology. The first type involves cooling air being blown through ducts to the room being conditioned. This type of cooled air is warmed by contact with the walls of the ducts, so distribution cannot without also blowing cool air through the duct system. The second type of cooled air is used in direct-to-room conditioning. The cooled, preheated air is pumped through a coil in the room’s furnace, cooling down to dehumidify and condition the space before returning to complete circulation.

Do You Have To Replace Air Conditioning?

If the air conditioner is still working properly, there’s no need to replace it. Instead, it’s simply time for a tune-up. Air conditioners are designed to last up to 7 years, but most run for at least 15 years before needing replacement.
