It is not at all uncommon for temperatures around here to climb well above 100°F during the summer season. This means, of course, that your air conditioner will be in consistent, if not constant, use. By using a more energy efficient AC system, you can maintain comfortable temperatures in your home without draining your cooling budget. AquaChill systems share a number of characteristics in common with more traditional air conditioners. They use refrigerant, as well as a compressor, in order to facilitate the heat transfer process. However, AquaChill systems also utilize water in their operation. This is similar in a way to swamp coolers, but make no mistake – the AquaChill system is completely unique unto itself.
By using water spray to pre-cool the refrigerant coils outside, these systems can cool down a home quickly. This spraying down of the coils gives the AC a head start in cooling a home, meaning that it won’t have to run as long to maintain comfortable temperatures, nor will it risk bringing too much moisture into your home, as an evaporative cooler may. Water is used only on the outdoor coils, after all.
We live in a very consistently hot area, and traditional air conditioning systems may falter in their attempts to maintain comfortable temperatures because of our intensely hot summer weather. AquaChill systems, though, are designed for these very conditions specifically.
