What Are Evaporator and Condenser Coils and How Do They Help Cool Your Home?
Air conditioners don't actually "produce" cold air in the way a furnace produces heat. Instead, they use refrigerant, or coolant, to absorb heat from the air, carry that heat outdoors, and release it into the air outdoors. The refrigerant circulates continuously to remove more and more heat from your home until your indoor air temperature reaches the one you've chosen on the thermostat. Evaporator and condenser coils handle different sides of the cooling cycle.
