The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or “compressor bearing unit” and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
How Central Air Conditioning Works
Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby “cooling” the air.
The heat that has transferred to the coil is then “pumped” to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.
How Central Air Conditioning Benefits you
Indoor comfort during warm weather Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
Cleaner air As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
Quieter operation Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.
Efficiency Savings Newer systems are highly efficient and start saving your energy right away. ENERGY STAR® estimates that ENGERY STAR® qualified heating and cooling equipment, when properly installed and maintained, can save 10-30% on your annual energy costs with a properly sealed duct system.
Environmentally Friendly By law, new systems must use the most environmentally sound products for your home. Chlorine-free Puron® refrigerant protects the ozone layer, is safer for the environment, and delivers superior cooling performance.

Great company!! As a roof replacement is a major project, we probably got a dozen estimates. Everyone, except Florida Solar wanted a deposit before the job even started. We could not be more satisfied. Starting with our salesman Nathan, the Office Staff who kept us appraised of everything, and the installation crew, who did an amazing job. The company also takes care of all permits, and inspections with the county as well as Homeowners Associations I will be recommending this company to our friends, and neighbors. Once again, top notch company.
This company exceeded my expectations. From start to finish I was informed of the status of my project. Everything was done in a timely manner . David and his installation crew were clean and efficient. I love that this company doesn't use sub contractors . It was a piece of mind for me knowing they do everything in house. I'll recommend them to everybody. Thank you FSA!
We are very satisfied with the teamwork, from the first appointment where Damaris and Anthony gave a detailed presentation of the materials and the process; Michael the project manager was always on the lookout for any questions we had and Greg the installer did a very clean and careful job with the best disposition paying attention to every detail. It has been a quick and timely process. everyone has been very professional. Thank you!
