Prior to about two months ago, I had absolutely zero comprehension of how heating and air conditioning actually works. I used to believe that the house was made cooler, because the air conditioning system actually makes the house cold. I also used to think that the heating system just used red-hot coils, which would make the ductwork heat up and “heat” the air. Needless to say, I had quite a few misconceptions when it came to the subject of heating and air conditioning. Eventually though, I had to learn a thing or do about how air conditioning worked when the A/C system at my house broke down. This time, the technician told me there was no saving it. However, before I made my decision, I had to consider my options. There was the conventional forced air system which was centralized, but now there was also the evaporative cooling systems which were made for hot, dry climates. Since I live in the southwestern region of the country, an air conditioning system that can cool and humidify a space was definitely ideal! I told my heating and A/C installation guy that I wanted to go with the evaporative cooling system this time, as it seemed like a much more efficient way to keep my home cool and comfortable. He totally agreed, and was eager to get the new evaporative cooling system installed for me. I was thrilled with the results! Now I know a good bit more about how air conditioning works, and I know that the new evaporative cooling system will be invaluable during this intense summer season.
