Due to a construction boom, particularly in developing nations like India, the overall amount of commercial space has been rapidly increasing. The World Building Congress, UNEP, IEA, and other organizations have all reported that buildings are among the biggest energy consumers and GHG emitters. The energy demand will rise in the years to come for a developing nation like India, along with urbanization and infrastructure growth.
Buildings, however, also have a tremendous potential to cut costs while significantly
lowering GHG emissions and energy use. To fully maximize the enormous possibility for energy savings, it is imperative to pursue energy efficiency in the building sector using cutting-edge technology and creative solutions.
Commercial buildings use about 15% of the electricity for space cooling, second only to lights. Business facilities usually cover large areas and must satisfy various unique demands. Consider a restaurant, a hospital, or an office complex. They are all very distinct from one another and the average home in terms of their HVAC needs.
Maintaining the occupants’ comfort, which includes the proper temperature, lighting, and air quality, is the responsibility of facility managers in commercial buildings worldwide. Every company requires a robust, dependable HVAC system to keep its clients satisfied and its employees productive. When a firm does not have a consistent cooling and ventilation flow, customers may leave, tenants may complain, and staff may become disgruntled.
While providing maximum comfort to occupants, a commercial cooling system must be energy-efficient to support the company’s bottom line and lessen its environmental impact. Building owners can increase a business building’s HVAC efficiency by selecting creative solutions that consume less energy and need little upkeep.
In a typical workplace arrangement, numerous activities produce heat. Organizations need to consider several factors to maintain safe working conditions, guarantee the health and safety of workers, and protect the structure and assets of a commercial building. Parameters like ambient temperature, humidity levels, air velocity, mean radiant temperature and air quality can impact the performance of a cooling system.
Regular air conditioning systems are frequently not regarded as practical for achieving desired temperatures because of concerns about cost, high energy consumption, and environmental impact. Some ventilation systems could provide comfortable cooling in most seasons but are ineffective during extended hot spells. In a commercial setting, you cannot depend on a device or appliance that merely circulates the air. Even the most powerful fans can’t correctly circulate air to provide the necessary cooling. Considering all parameters, experts recommend evaporative coolers to efficiently and sustainably achieve the most comfortable temperatures.
Evaporative coolers work by using the natural evaporation process to cool a room. A pump in an evaporative cooler draws hot and dry air, filtered and passed over a wet pad. The water in the pad evaporates, and as it does, it draws heat from the air, cooling it.
This process is much more efficient than other air cooling methods and is also much more environmentally friendly. Evaporative Air cooling creates 100% fresh air ensuring a comfortable working environment. In the sweltering, dry climate, evaporative cooling helps keep the proper humidity levels.
Evaporative coolers have a minimal carbon footprint and can help improve indoor air quality. These are also relatively quieter, making them more desirable for commercial spaces. Furthermore, evaporative coolers can be used in various climates, making them a versatile cooling solution for commercial buildings in different parts of the world.
It is imperative to take expert opinion from cooling specialists to examine the building’s architecture to develop and install the optimum evaporative air- cooling system. The ARCTIC team of cooling experts is highly skilled in evaluating various areas of a building on all technical parameters listed above. After a thorough study, the experts will suggest the best options for each building section.
Depending on an overall assessment, cooling implementation engineers can deploy a combination of ARCTIC evaporative coolers from our range of Direct (Ducted) Coolers and Indirect Coolers. ARCTIC Direct Evaporative Coolers are considered the best central cooling option for large areas. These sturdy body coolers utilize several grills for superior air control and long ducts to supply excellent central cooling across a sizable area.
For particular needs, we have various Portable Coolers and Spot Coolers to cool warmer areas of the building. These are mobile and need little setup time. Our “Free Flow side discharge Air Cooler” version has the most potent air throw and a valve to regulate the air supply and range. Another choice for highly efficient spot and focused cooling is a “Free Flow Top Discharge Air Cooler” with an integrated L-shaped duct and grill.
Desiccant Rotors International (DRI), a pioneer in the HVAC&R industry, manufactures the ARCTIC line of evaporative coolers. DRI is a member of the Pahwa Group, which is a global innovation leader in the space of desiccant-based technologies.
DRI’s global presence provides end-to-end solutions for evaporative cooling, green buildings, and fresh air purification. Some of the best- designed buildings in the world, including those in Australia, India, Brazil, China, Malaysia, Thailand, UAE, USA, and many more, are achieving comfortable cooling and good indoor air quality with the aid of DRI installations.
The ARCTIC brand, which offers the widest selection of products worldwide, is renowned for its focus on designing and implementing solutions based on customers’ needs.
