Air conditioners don't really make or create cold air. Air conditioners work by removing the heat and humidity in the room or building and expelling the hot air to the outside.

Try this.

When your air conditioner is running go outside and stand near it. You'll feel hot air being blown around if it's a central air conditioner.

With a window air conditioner feel the back of the air conditioner where the fins are. You should feel hot air coming out of it.

That's the hot air that was in your house.

Air conditioners use a refrigerant and compressor which compresses the refrigerant.

Without this refrigerant your air conditioner wouldn't work.

Inside the home (sometimes referred to as the “cold side” of the system), warm indoor air is cooled as it blows across a cold cooling coil full of refrigerant. Heat from indoor air is absorbed into the refrigerant as the refrigerant turns from liquid to gas. The cooled air is distributed back to the house. For example, the air conditioners of skm air conditioning LLC work according to this principle and that is why they are considered as one of the best and most effective. I think you should pay attention to them.
