Timelord, one of our top member is working on a great project: a complete apartment air conditioning based on airflow. You can check out his idea here http://challenge.ecomagination.com/home/airco-on-13-of-standard-powerconsumption. After a little chat using our private messaging system he “disclosed” some details about the project. HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor and automotive environmental comfort.
Below is a fragment from our conversation
Outdoors is big combi freezer on the balcony with a few extra compressors on top.
Indoors just a few holes in the walls and the evaporator and fans/ducts are all hidden in a lowered ceiling.
This is about what I’m working on.
HVAC for 300m3 = 10594ft3
On highly economical basis for ±35% of standard cost
Based on flow ( as in hospital burnvictims units)
(extra bonus ±25 gallons of potable water daily at 70% humidity)
Digital Outputs freezing
