WHAT DOES AIR-CONDITIONER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

air-conditioner

Air conditioning

Air conditioning is the process of altering the properties of air to more favourable conditions, typically with the aim of distributing the conditioned air to an occupied space to improve comfort. In the most general sense, air conditioning can refer to any form of technology, heating, cooling, de-humidification, humidification, cleaning, ventilation, or air movement, that modifies the condition of air. In common use, an air conditioner is a device that lowers the air temperature. The cooling is typically done using a simple refrigeration cycle, but sometimes evaporation is used, commonly for comfort cooling in buildings and motor vehicles. In construction, a complete system of heating, ventilation and air conditioning is referred to as "HVAC". Air conditioning can also be provided by a simple process called free cooling which uses pumps to circulate a coolant from a cold source, which in turn acts as a heat sink for the energy that is removed from the cooled space. Free cooling systems can have very high efficiencies, and are sometimes combined with seasonal thermal energy storage so the cold of winter can be used for summer air conditioning.
