Maintaining Your Air Conditioner:

One of the most often neglected systems a home inspector must evaluate in a home is the central air-conditioning system. Most central air-conditioning systems are split systems, meaning that part of the equipment is found outside the home and part is inside. There is an exterior component called the condenser (compressor) and the evaporator unit, which is found within the home, either within the plenum (duct work directly above the furnace) or within a dedicated air-handler to the air-conditioning system. Central air conditioning systems distribute the cool air through ducts, but some distribute the cool air from an air-handler mounted in a wall.AC Inspection & Maintenance
