Coleman air conditioners cool the air. As the liquid refrigerant travels through the cooling coils, it absorbs heat and becomes a gas. This gas returns to the compressor unit outside the home. The refrigerant travels through a set of condenser coils that remove the heat. A compressor converts the refrigerant back to a liquid to start the refrigeration cycle again.

As the unit cools the air from the home, its capacity to hold water, in the form of humidity, decreases. The water vapor condenses on the coils and drips into a pan under the cooling coils. A drain carries this excess water away from the unit, lowering the humidity level in the home while increasing the comfort of occupants.

Split-system air conditioners are quiet. The loud compressor unit is outside the home and the quiet central air handler is away from the living space. The cool air passes through a system of ducts that distribute it throughout the home. The homeowner can have these systems added to an existing central heating system to ensure comfort all year.
