Evaporative cooling works because as warm air passes through a series of wet filter pads, the water in the pads evaporates, therefore cooling the air passing through them. No refrigerants are required, with their complex, energy intensive compression systems, in the production of cold air used in evaporative cooling. This is why these systems run at 10% of the power of air-con units.
Green Energy offers a range of different units with different installation options, which you can access from our products pages. These include:
|Evaporative Air Cooling||Refrigerated Air Conditioning|
|Uses 10% of the electricity required by conventional air conditioning||High electrical use due to refrigerant circuit compressor|
|No refrigerants||Uses environmentally damaging refrigerants|
|Supplies 100% fresh, outside air and cools it||Produces recycled internal air that is cool|
|Low Carbon Dioxide footprint||High Carbon Dioxide footprint|
|Simple engineering, easier and cheaper to maintain||Complex engineering, hard and expensive to maintain|
|Low purchase cost||High purchase cost|
|Performance improves at high temperatures||Performance reduces at high temperatures|
|Open windows and doors provide effective evacuation of air||Must not leave Windows & Doors open|
We employ several methods to determine how many coolers are required using proven airflow and cooling design tools.
One method, the "Air Changes" approach, calculates the volume of the building and applies a multiplier based on the type of building it is and the consequent requirements for air-flow. An office or shop, for example might only require 8 - 10 total-volume air-changes per hour, whereas a bakery, or a forge, would require between 30 - 40.
A further method, the "Energy Balance" method, relies on the present cooling load on a building to be known. If it is, then the mass flow rate of the air at a given temperature can be calculated. An allowance can be made for "layering" in taller buildings.
One final method is the "Spot Cooling" calculation where the air changes per hour can be calculated as a function of distance the cooling effect is required from the cooling source.
All these calculations are available to our installers and consultants.
