A residential air conditioner has a straightforward job: remove heat from a house using refrigerant and release the heat outside, cooling down the air inside the house so it can then be spread through the rooms. This process is called heat transfer, in that it shifts heat from one place to another. A good way to think of it your AC is as a pump that pumps out the heat from your house to make you feel cooler.
