Is it better to use copper pipe or aluminum pipe for the connection between the internal and external units of the air conditioner?
Air conditioners are generally divided into indoor units and outdoor units. The two devices need to be connected to start work. The connecting materials usually include copper pipes and aluminum pipes. The connecting pipe of the internal and external units is used to transport the refrigerant of the air conditioner, and the outside of the connecting pipe is also connected to the heat sink of the air conditioner, so if the quality of the connecting pipe is not good, it will directly affect the cooling effect of the air conditioner.
First of all, compared with aluminum pipes, copper pipes have higher pressure resistance and corrosion resistance due to the physical properties of copper pipes, so there is no need to worry about the erosion of copper pipes in the outside environment of wind and sun. In addition, due to the physical properties, the aluminum tube itself has a lower density and a softer texture, and is inferior to the copper tube in terms of flexibility and lifespan, so the connecting tube is made of copper tube.
Secondly, although the price of copper pipes is higher than that of aluminum pipes, many consumers may prefer to choose aluminum pipes in order to save costs, but the editor recommends that you choose high-quality copper pipes, which will give you a better experience. It will also avoid problems with the connecting pipes in the later stage, which will be more expensive and troublesome at that time.
