How Do Windowless Air Conditioning Units Work?


Quick Answer

Windowless air conditioning units work by capturing and taking in the hot air, cooling the captured air and releasing chilled air into the house. The unit contains a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator for these functions.

The compressor is the first part of the windowless air conditioner that receives hot air, steps up the pressure of the air and transmits the air to the condenser. The condenser reduces the temperature of the air to a greater extent, transforms the air into a liquid state and transmits the liquefied air to the evaporator. The evaporator transforms the liquid back to a gaseous state and eliminates heat before passing the air out of the unit. Once the thermostat in the air conditioner senses that the temperature in the room has reached the preset level, the air conditioner stops working automatically.

To ensure proper functioning of the windowless air conditioner, removing condensation that results from the air cooling process is necessary. The removal involves checking if the water reservoir in the unit is full and draining it as needed. Additionally, the windowless air conditioner needs venting for proper functioning. One way to vent the unit involves the use of Plexiglas, which allows the hot air generated from the cooling process to escape via a casement window.
