How Central Air Units Operate

The standard type of central AC system is also known as a split air conditioner. The reason is simple: the system is split into two separate units, one housed outside and the other inside. The outside unit is called the condenser, and it contains the compressor that puts refrigerant under high pressure and a condenser coil and fan to release heat to the outdoors. The indoor unit is a combination of an air handler and an evaporator. The air handler sends air from the return ducts and blows it around the evaporator coil, where the cold refrigerant absorbs heat from the air and cools it down. The air enters the ventilation system and travels to the various rooms.

Installing or replacing a central AC system is a large and complicated task. It isn’t something you want to trust to amateurs! Make the right choice when you need a new central air conditioner and arrange for the service with our NATE–certified technicians. We’re licensed with the State of New York and fully insured.

A Long History with the Split Air Conditioner in Staten Island, NY

The first electro–mechanical air conditioner was invented in 1902. The first central air conditioning systems were put into homes in the 1920s, but they were prohibitively expensive. It wasn’t until the 1950s that the central AC system began to spread extensively into homes. That means that Scaran, which was founded in 1930, has been installing central air conditioning systems in Staten Island from pretty much the beginning of central ACs! We’ve kept current with the technology of the central air units, making us the best choice for all your central air conditioning needs—from a new unit to regular maintenance on a current one. Need it done? "Can Do!"
