Technicold can provide a wide range of marine HVAC services, and have become known for their high-quality, tried-and-tested systems.
Marine chilled water AC systemsFresh water is pumped through the chiller through an insulated piping loop. The chilled water passes through air handlers located throughout the boat.
Air handlers can be placed virtually anywhere on board. Controls in each air handler maintain individual room temperature and humidity levels. Technicold air handlers are available in several different configurations to allow for flexibility of installation.
Chilled water systems provide excellent load management when using multiple stages to reduce peak electrical load. Heating can be added through the loop water or by air strips in the air handlers.
Because they can deliver room-specific climate control and maximum electrical efficiency, chilled water systems are best suited to vessels over 80 ft long, or any vessel with six or more areas needing climate control.
Direct expansion air conditioning systemsThe direct expansion system is composed of two separate elements – a condensing unit, usually mounted in the engine room, and evaporator units installed in living quarters. The condensing unit connects to the evaporator units via insulated, copper refrigerant tubing.
The system runs quietly, based on the location of the condenser. The air handlers are unobtrusive in terms of space usage. The maximum length of refrigerant tubing between condenser and air handlers is 50 feet (15 meters). For these reasons, direct expansion AC is recommended for vessels with multiple berths and under 80 feet LOA.
