Most people think an air-conditioning system's job is just to add "cold" air to the space. Actually air conditioning is a process by which air is cooled and dehumidified by mechanical means. In a broader sense, air conditioning includes both the cooling and heating of air, cleaning it and controlling its moisture level, and conditioning it to provide maximum indoor comfort. Engineers define the process as one in which a system of mechanical components-usually a compressor, a fan, condenser coil, evaporator coil, and a chemical refrigerant-extracts heat from indoor air and transfers it outside, leaving the cooled indoor air to be re-circulated. The cleaning function of air conditioners is performed by filters.

This course introduces the basics of air-conditioning systems found in residential and small to medium commercial and industrial facilities. It explains the following subjects as they pertain to air conditioning: principles of air conditioning, heat pumps, chilled-water systems, periodic maintenance, cooling towers, troubleshooting, automotive air conditioning, and ductwork.
