What happens when both the outdoor unit and the indoor unit of the air conditioner are installed in the same place?
To answer this question, we first need to understand the principle of operation of the air conditioner.
Air conditioner has 2 parts called outdoor unit and indoor unit. The inside of the indoor unit contains a system of circulating pipes with the outdoor unit to evaporate a volatile liquid called refrigerant gas.
When this liquid evaporates in the indoor unit at a low temperature, it will help collect heat from the air in the room. As a result, the hot air in the room will be lost and replaced by cold air to help lower the room temperature.
The vapor generated by the evaporative refrigerant gas will follow the pipeline to the compressor’s intake and be compressed to high pressure and high temperature, then to the outdoor unit. The compressed vapor in the outdoor unit has a high temperature, so it is easy to transfer heat to the outside air.
At this time, the heat will be blown to the outside environment by the fan in the outdoor unit, while the heat inside the unit will lose heat and will condense into a liquid that flows through the capillary pipe to lower the pressure and temperature of the liquid. low and then enter the indoor unit installed inside the room.
According to the operating principle of the air conditioner, the outdoor unit of the air conditioner must be installed outside the room to push the hot air out.
If in the case of still deliberately installing both the outdoor unit and the indoor unit in the same room, it will lead to the phenomenon that when it is first turned on, the place where the indoor unit blows out will be cool and the place where the outdoor unit blows out will be hot.
However, after only a few dozen minutes, the room will become hot because the steam from the indoor unit cannot be enough to neutralize the hot air from the outdoor unit.
The reason is that the outdoor unit has a very high temperature, plus the outdoor unit’s fan has a large air flow, so it will quickly heat the whole room. You must have also imagined how the air conditioner must “struggle” to cool the room.
The effort of the air conditioner to do that will bring the power consumption to the highest level. This ridiculous installation will quickly overwhelm the air conditioner and break down after only a few days of use.
Thus, it can be seen that installing the outdoor unit and indoor unit in the same room will lead to the phenomenon that the room cannot be cool, even hotter than outside, the power consumption is high, the machine has to work too hard and fast. damaged quickly.
So do not be foolish to do this unreasonable thing when installing air conditioners for your home! It is not only uneconomical but also the reason why your air conditioner breaks down faster!
