The short answer to this is “no,” but don’t worry—we’ll elaborate below.
Your home’s air conditioning system—whether it is a standard central cooling unit or a heat pump—is a refrigeration system, just like your freezer or your fridge. It cools down air by not generating cooled air but by removing heat from the air in a heat transference process.
Refrigerant is circulated through a set of outdoor and indoor coils, evaporating in the indoor coils to draw heat from the air, and condensing in the outdoor coils to release heat. This refrigerant is essential to the operation of your air conditioning system, and any loss means you have a leak that needs to be repaired by a professional.
