People rely on their air conditioners to cool their homes during the hot summer months. The outside temperature has a large impact on your air conditioning system. These are the ways soaring outside temperatures affect the cooling of your home.

How AC Systems Work

An air conditioner uses refrigerant to cool the air. It pulls air in from your home, cools it down, and then pumps it back inside. The heat from your indoor air is released outside. An AC system also reduces the humidity level inside your home.
