Answer: When it comes to buying an air conditioner one of the common terms that you must have heard often is reverse cycle air conditioning. The other name for reverse cycle air conditioning is heat pumps. It uses the refrigeration cycle either to heat or cool your homes. A compressor is one of the integral parts of reverse cycle air conditioning. The process is such that the compressor pumps the refrigerant into the chambers and then into the condenser. When the refrigerant is compressed it warms up and the result is that hot air blows into the home with the help of a fan. As this process gets completed the refrigerant goes back to the evaporator and cools down before it is pumped into the condenser for being recycled.Similarly, when you have to cool your home the cycle mentioned above gets reversed and cool air is pumped into the home.When you plan to install a reverse cycle air conditioning in your home, there are certain factors that need to be kept in mind like the orientation of the building, the size of the rooms, the material that has gone into the construction, and the level of insulation that is present in the house.
