Determination of the Transient Dehumidification Characteristics of High Efficiency Central Air Conditioners
MetadataShow full item record
A series of tests were performed to assesses the dehumidifying performance of residential central air conditioners (CACs). The performance studies were based on factors such as: (i) dynamic performance (ii) the ASHRAE comfort zone, (iii) control strategy and (iv) published performance characteristic of the units. The units were evaluated on their ability to maintain conditions in the ASHRAE comfort zone in a typical residence and typical summer days in Houston, Texas.
