A Kelvinator air conditioner is an instrument that is utilized to rapidly cool down a room by extracting heat from the room and transferring it to an external cooler area. The heated air is then conveyed through ventilation pipes, usually run along the HVAC system’s ductwork perimeter. Air conditioners generally need to be operated by a licensed professional, and they must be installed and serviced periodically.
There are several different types of air conditioner available, including portable and permanent split-system units. A portable Kelvinator air conditioner can be taken with you wherever you go, while the permanent type needs to be permanently installed in the house. Portable air conditioners have built-in wheels to make it easier to move them about, while the permanent kind needs to be secured to a permanent wall or some other structure. They are also more expensive than the portable models.
Split-system air conditioners have their internal heat exchanger located at a lower location than the compressor. It reduces the amount of heat transfer from the compressor to the indoor unit while also making the unit less conspicuous. However, the problem with this type of air conditioner, as with all air conditioners, is that the fan has to work harder to keep the room uniformly cool. It may not be sufficient in areas where the air conditioner’s cooling capacity is already being depleted by the high temperatures.
Another type of Kelvinator air conditioner called the Thermal Massage Air Conditioning (TMAAC) involves special equipment that conducts positive static pressure, which forces the heat outside of the building by causing convective air to move faster through the ventilation pipe. This process pulls the warm air inside the building out through the vent pipe, while the cold air is pulled into the room through the condenser coil. A TMAAC is especially good at removing heat from very cold areas, such as outer walls and brick homes. Because the condenser coil is situated outside the building, the temperature inside the building will not fluctuate as much from winter to summer, while a portable air conditioner needs to be watched and maintained regularly to prevent overheating. It is especially true during the summer months.
A hybrid air conditioner uses a compressor and an evaporator in addition to the compressor. The compressor converts the AC energy into mechanical heat, which is then transferred to the refrigerant gas. This process draws heat out of the air, making it cooler and pulling in colder air from the outside. Some hybrid air conditioners have a compressor and evaporator combination that allows them to pull warm air from outside and push cool air back out, thus keeping the indoor temperature constant. In hybrid units, the compressor is the dominant component, and the evaporator is almost always placed on the roof of the structure being cooled, allowing better circulation and evaporation of heat.
