what is the air conditioner ?

apurvaanand16 9th Oct, 2019

Hello Nikhil, Well, air conditioner is pretty common now-a-days. Air conditioner regulates the air inside a room and takes out the warm air and replaces it with cooler air. Air conditioner is very helpful in case of very hot climate or very cold climate as it works irrespective of the weather outside.
