How Do Chilled Water Systems Work?

The chiller is the part of the chilled water system where the heat exchange occurs between the water that goes to the building and the evaporator. Then the water leaves the chilled water evaporator at 45 degrees. The water is then sent through the whole building via a pump.

The water cools the building or home and picks up the heat and returns to the chiller at about fifty degrees. The water temperature has been heated up by ten degrees after cooling the structure.

Chilled water systems are commonly used in cooling large commercial spaces such as office buildings and factories. However, more and homes are using this type of system in their home because of its low cost and no hazard of having refrigerant piped all over the house.

Residential or Commercial, chilled water systems are a cost effective way to control the temperature of any building. If you are still thinking about chilled water systems, please contact us to get answers to any questions you may have.
