Look, when we studied in school, no one taught us how the air conditioners work. But it just depresses me that a lot of people treat air conditioners like air coolers! That is, they’d leave the doors and windows open and sit directly in front of the AC blower, complaining the ACs don’t work. Meh!
AC would keep cooling the air until it attains the set temperature. Otherwise, unless your AC cools off the entire environment (less likely, yeah?) the compressor would keep on working, drilling a big hole in your pocket.
