District Heating, District Cooling

Comparison between Water-Cooled Systems and Air-Cooled Systems

The role of a district cooling system is to distribute cooling energy from a centralized production plant using an underground pipeline to a district. It is the perfect replacement for older air conditioning systems because of its lower energy consumption, reduced annual maintenance costs, and envir[..]
