Using Water Cooled in Tight Spaces
Strict planning requirements are becoming increasingly difficult to navigate within the UK’s densely populated cities. Local councils such as the City of Westminster insist that equipment should not increase background noise when measured in places such as residential or sensitive premises. They should not be visible from particular locations that would alter a buildings aesthetics or an areas appearance.
A typical air conditioning system will consist of a condenser, that is placed outside, along with a selection of indoor units. The outdoor unit will generate noise mainly due to the air movement it generates across its heat exchanger. Cutting edge technologies are used during design to minimise sound levels, and reduce product footprint, but still not enough to meet all planning requirements.
