How Air Conditioning Units Work

Commercial air conditioning comes in both centrally driven systems and local systems. Traditionally offices tended to have a central cooling and heating fan unit whereby the temperature controlled air is distributed throughout the building by a system of ceiling or floor ducts. A series of ventilation grills and baffles are balanced to ensue an even air distribution throughout the building.

In recent years the air conditioning industry has made huge advances in the technology it employs and the industry would argue that their products are now highly efficient in their use of energy.

The residents of the house will then be able to control temperature and humidity by using a remote control.

The internal wall mounted unit is alternatively referred to as a wall inverter unit or high-wall inverter. The advent of inverter technology has transformed the efficiency of air conditioning. Its general application is in digitally controlling the capacity and fan speed of the system to match it precisely to the temperature to be maintained or achieved.

If inverter units are used in commercial buildings, these are often ceiling cassettes which come in a variety of specifications (1, 2 and 4 way cassettes). Perimeter areas and corridor areas often use air conditioning console units. Wall mounted inverter units are common throughout commercial buildings and are now becoming increasingly used in hotels. The attraction of these units is the opportunity for residents to control inverter output temperatures locally and very accurately.

Air conditioning systems have the ability to effectively be ‘run in reverse’, thereby also acting as a heat pump. This is an extremely efficient use of electricity in providing domestic heating by provision of warm blow air. As a guideline the cost indication would be that a single wall inverter unit and compressor can be supplied and fitted at under 2000 +vat.

Domestic Air Conditioning Air conditioning is the removal of heat from indoor air for the thermal comfort of inhabitants. Air Conditioning can be used for many types of transportation, including cars, trains, ships, aeroplanes, and other vehicles.
