Central Air Conditioners
Be cool! When building a new home or replacing your existing cooling system, Frosty’s Heating and Cooling will provide the right solution for your home.  By using the highest quality materials and state of the art techniques, we are able to provide customers with solutions that maintain their homes’ operating efficiencies while saving on annual heating costs for years to come.

When offering you a wide variety of central air conditioners, Frosty’s takes into consideration your needs and physical requirements of your particular home. Frosty’s Heating and Cooling can provide you with a variety of different options regarding which cooling system or product line to install.

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (S.E.E.R.) calculates how quickly a central air conditioner converts its fuel to energy. There is a wide range of central air conditioning efficiencies available, ranging from 8 to 20 S.E.E.R. -- the higher the SEER rating, the more you’ll save on energy costs!

Effective January 1, 2010, only Chlorine-free R410a refrigerant charged air conditioners will be available.  R-410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort and are more environmentally friendly.

How Air Conditioners Operate
Most people think that air conditioners lower the temperature in their homes simply by pumping in cool air. In actuality, the warm air from your house is being removed and cycled back in as cooler air. This cycle continues until your thermostat reaches the desired temperature.

A central air conditioner is basically a refrigerator without the insulated box. It uses the evaporation of Freon to provide cooling. The mechanics of the Freon evaporation cycle are the same as in a refrigerator with the evaporation cycle of an air conditioner working as follows:
  • The compressor compresses the cool Freon gas, causing it to become hot, high-pressure Freon gas.
  • The hot Freon gas runs through a set of coils and dissipate its heat, condensing into a liquid.
  • The Freon liquid runs through an expansion valve and evaporates to become cold, low-pressure Freon gas.
  • The now cold gas runs through a set of coils that allow the gas to absorb heat and
    cool down the air inside the building.
Air conditioners also help clean your home's air as well. Most indoor units have filters that catch dust, pollen, mold spores and other allergens, as well as smoke and everyday dirt found in the air. Most air conditioners also function as dehumidifiers by taking excess water from the air to help cool the unit before transferring the water through a hose to the outside. Other units use the condensed moisture to improve efficiency by routing and recycling the cooled water back into the system.
