How a split air conditioner works

A split air conditioner works by splitting the cold side from the hot side of the system. The hot side of the AC system is generally outside the residential building while the cold side lives inside.

This air handling unit blows a blast of air through the coil and then routes the air all around the building by a series of ducts.

The unit also consists of a large spiral coil which is cylindrical in shape. There is a weather resistance compressor, a fan and some controlling logic inside the coil.
