An Evaluation of Steady-State Dehumidification Characteristics of Residential Central Air Conditioners, Final Report
MetadataShow full item record
This report is the first of two reports on the project "Determination of the Transient Response Characteristics of High Efficiency Commercial Air Conditioners" funded by Houston Lighting and Power Company. The purpose of this report is to present the results from an investigation of the possible relationship between residential central air conditioner efficiency and dehumidification performance. The method used was that of a survey of air conditioners currently manufactured and on the market as of late 1986. Chapter 2 outlines the basic terminology used in evaluating the dehumidification performance of central air conditioners. Chapter 3 provides background to the survey data. Chapter 4 presents results from the survey. Conclusions and recommendations are presented in Chapter 5.
