The process of heating, cooling, humidifying, filtering, drying, deodorizing, or otherwise treating air in a room or building to maintain a specified temperature and/or relative humidity and to remove impurities.
A system that cools and dehumidifies air entering the passenger compartment. The system uses a refrigerant to cool the air and carry heat away from the passenger compartment. Major system components include a compressor, condenser, evaporator, accumulator

a system that keeps air cool and dry
the process of treating air to control its temperature, moisture, cleanliness and distribution Air conditioning system, year-round: a system that controls the total environment during all seasons under all comfort requirements
The air conditioning process represents the combined treatment of the air in enclosed spaces to control, as specified, temperature, relative humidity, velocity of motion, and radiant heat energy level, including consideration of the need for removal of airborne particles and contaminant gases. Some partial air conditioners that may not accomplish all of these controls are selected for their capability to control specific phases of air treatment. Air conditioning systems include all-air, central fan, cooling (heating), variable air volume and modular air-conditioning systems.
Air that is treated as it comes into the house. Either cooled heated and or filtered. Usually air-conditioning is the result of a ventilation system incorporating a heat pump.
A process that maintains comfort conditions in a defined area.
The control of the quality, quantity, and temperature-humidity of the air in an interior space.
The treatment of air in a building, which is accomplished by controlling its temperature, humidity, and purification.
Control of the temperature, humidity, air movement and cleaning of air in a confined space.
Controlling the temperature, relative humidity, air cleanliness and air motion in a space to meet the requirements of the equipment.
The process of treating air so as to control simultaneously its temperature, humidity, cleanliness and distribution to meet the comfort requirements of the occupants of the conditioned space.
Treating air to meet the requirements of a conditioned space by controlling its temperature, humidity, cleanliness and distribution.
The treatment of air temperature, humidity, cleanliness and circulation so as to achieve a controlled, desired result.
The treatment of air so as to control simultaneously the temperature, humidity, cleanness, and distribution of the air to meet the requirements of a conditioned space.
In the broadest sense air conditioning can refer to any form of cooling, heating, ventilation or disinfection that modifies the condition of air, typically for thermal comfort.ASHRAE Terminology of HVAC&R, ASHRAE, Inc., Atlanta, 1991, The more common use of air conditioning is to mean cooling and often dehumidification of indoor air, typically via refrigeration.
