Air conditioning (often referred to as AC, A/C, or air con) is the process of removing heat and moisture from the interior of an occupied space, to improve the comfort of occupants.
AlliedSignal was an American aerospace, automotive and engineering company created through the 1985 merger of Allied Corp. and Signal Companies.
An azeotrope (gK, US) or a constant boiling point mixture is a mixture of two or more liquids whose proportions cannot be altered or changed by simple distillation.
Carbon dioxide (chemical formula) is a colorless gas with a density about 60% higher than that of dry air.
Carrier Corporation is a brand of the UTC Climate, Controls & Security division, based in Jupiter, Florida.
Chlorodifluoromethane or difluoromonochloromethane is a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC).
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are fully halogenated paraffin hydrocarbons that contain only carbon (С), chlorine (Cl), and fluorine (F), produced as volatile derivative of methane, ethane, and propane.
Difluoromethane, also called HFC-32 or R-32, is an organic compound of the dihalogenoalkane variety.
The Emerson Electric Company is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Ferguson, Missouri, United States.
Global warming potential (GWP) is a relative measure of how much heat a greenhouse gas traps in the atmosphere.
The haloalkanes (also known as halogenoalkanes or alkyl halides) are a group of chemical compounds derived from alkanes containing one or more halogens.
Honeywell International Inc. is an American multinational conglomerate company that produces a variety of commercial and consumer products, engineering services and aerospace systems for a wide variety of customers, from private consumers to major corporations and governments.
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (a protocol to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer) is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of numerous substances that are responsible for ozone depletion.
Ozone depletion describes two related events observed since the late 1970s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth's atmosphere(the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions.
Pentafluoroethane is a refrigerant with the formula CF3CHF2.
Pink is a pale red color that is named after a flower of the same name.
A refrigerant is a substance or mixture, usually a fluid, used in a heat pump and refrigeration cycle.
The efficiency of air conditioners is often rated by the seasonal energy efficiency Ratio (SEER) which is defined by the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute in its 2008 standard AHRI 210/240, Performance Rating of Unitary Air-Conditioning and Air-Source Heat Pump Equipment.
The Environmental Protection Agency is an independent agency of the United States federal government for environmental protection.
A zeotropic mixture, or non-azeotropic mixture, is a mixture with components that have different boiling points.
