Boise, Idaho, has a climate that takes summer temperatures over a 100 degrees F, and makes it very necessary to have air conditioning to ensure comfortable living and working conditions. This is where air conditioning Boise companies can help to install the right equipment to ensure that temperatures remain at least twenty or more degrees below the outside, and thus make life easier.

Most modern air conditioners need to follow efficiency regulations that are set by state and federal authorities and can easily maintain the required temperatures. When temperatures outside are over a hundred degrees, the temperatures in attics can go up to a hundred and eighty degrees, and this can place a very heavy load on equipment. Therefore, most air conditioning Boise companies will also advise you to go in for insulation in roofs and attics so that temperatures within the living areas are stable and much more manageable.

Air conditioners act not by adding coolness but by removing heat. They follow the same basic principle that is used in refrigerators, though such low temperatures are never produced. Refrigerants are compressed to very high pressures so that they get liquefied. This liquid is then pumped through coils and allowed to expand which greatly reduces the temperature of this medium.

Air circulating over these coils thus loses its heat and produces the cool air that makes for air conditioning. Thermostats and fans are part of most modern air conditioners and will allow temperatures to be regulated and distributed, as per that desired by the persons in the area. Air conditioners also have other things like filters that control the quality of the air that the air conditioner uses. These filters are very necessary to ensure better health and are very important for the proper functioning of air conditioners.

Air conditioning Boise companies will suggest window air conditioners for individual rooms and central air conditioning for larger areas. Window air conditioners, as the name suggests, are fitted into windows that face the outside of a home, or can be installed in wall openings specifically created for this purpose. The portion of the unit outside the window or wall helps to dissipate the heat and does affects its efficiency.

Central air conditioning units will have units positioned outside a home or on roofs, and have the cooled air or coolant pipes led into the rooms to be air conditioned. Ducts lead to various areas and conduct the cooled air into the spaces being cooled. Separate return air ducts need to take the heated air back to the atmosphere or back to the unit to be cooled again.

Maintenance of these units is a very important part of their efficient functioning, and most air conditioning Boise agencies will be very happy to perform these duties, to ensure that the units perform round the clock in the summer months. Besides checking filters and ducts, the agencies will also check other electrical and mechanical components. Such maintenance needs to be carried out at regular intervals.
