Air conditioning is part of the HVAC technology (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) which is a specialised field of mechanical engineering. Its goal is to provide comfort and acceptable indoor air quality.

An air conditioner contains five components including a condenser, refrigerant, compressor, expansive valve and evaporator coil. It works by transferring the heat outside and leaving only cool air behind. This process is known as the refrigeration cycle.

Air conditioning units may come in different forms depending on their size and the mechanisms they use. The different types include:

  • Window units and packaged terminals
  • Split systems
  • Portable units

Air conditioning is an important part of all types of structures including:

  • Residential structures
  • Medium to large industrial and office buildings
  • Skyscrapers
  • Ships and submarines
