  • Benefits of Liquid Desiccant Energy Efficient Air Conditioning

    Liquid Desiccant Energy-efficient air conditioning is an innovative technology meant to save cost and energy by effectively controlling the humidity in the atmosphere. The liquid desiccant absorbs the moisture before cooling its dew point air since it comprises a concentrated salt solution. It works more effectively on hot-humid applications where Case doors do not allow condensation. Most industries will embrace the use of liquid desiccants due to the following reasons.

  • EPA Drastically cutting Potent Gases

    The EPA has decided to drastically cut potent greenhouse gases. The EPA says these chemicals, like hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs) and per fluorocarbons (PFCs), cause global warming by trapping heat in the Earth’s atmosphere. HFCs are used in air conditioners and refrigerators, while PFCs are used in the foam of every airplane and car. There is a four year grace period for companies that use these chemicals to adapt. Many people believe this action is too late, as measures to combat global warming should have been put in place a long time ago. It aims to reduce HFC production and usage in the United States by 85 percent over the next 15 years as part of a global phase out to combat global warming. By 2050, it is predicted to reduce harmful emissions by the equivalent of 4.5 billion metric tons of CO2, which is equivalent to three years’ worth of emissions from the US power sector. Over the next 30 years, switching to safer alternatives and more energy-efficient cooling systems is estimated to save more than $270 billion in costs and improve public health.

  • Can Nanoscience Change the AC Industry?

    Things on the earth all emit varying degrees of heat through infrared rays that invisibly rise skyward. After the sun goes down each day, this absence of sunlight surprisingly produces an environment that creates enough chill to even form ice. As an example, remember that a vehicle’s windshield can frost over whether or not the temperature has dropped below freezing. This is radiative cooling.

  • Looking Into How EPA Rule phases out HFC Emissions

    HFC emissions are more dangerous as compared to carbon dioxide, such that they can warm the planet at a faster rate. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is currently working on ensuring everything is in check such that global warming won’t be a major issue.

  • Michigan Program Looks at Indoor Air Quality in Schools

    COVID-19 is an airborne infection. The concern with its ability to transfer from one area to the next after a person coughs or sneezes and releases particulates into the air is exactly what sparked Michigan schools to examine their HVAC systems. Michigan schools wanted to know just how much of a risk their ventilation ducts presented in air quality and the spread of the virus.

  • IOT improves HVAC Efficiency

    The Internet Of Things (IOT) can take HVAC system efficiency to the next level, reducing energy costs and increasing sustainability. Utilizing the technologies associated with the IOT, heating and cooling systems can fine tune function like never before. These micro-adjustments can result in significant energy cost savings, with some seeing as much as a 30 percent reduction in their energy bills. Indeed, making the shift to smart HVAC system has the potential to pay for itself over time.
