Universities, schools or other educational facilities have to ensure the buildings maintenance as well as their users’ comfort at all times. The heat and humidity level of tropical areas can affect the quality of the air and lead to unsanitary situations.
To avoid this, it is essential to have an efficient air-conditioning system that can maintain a good air quality. However, conventional air-conditioning systems are very costly as they can represent up to three quarter of the electricity expenses of a building, and they are extremely polluting due to the use of harmful refrigerants and emissions of CO2 responsible for global warming.
By pumping cold seawater from the oceans’ depths and circulating it through buildings, SWAC systems offer a sustainable, durable and economical solution for cooling. Air-conditioning from seawater uses 90% less energy than conventional systems, which makes SWAC a very cost-effective solution. Finally, because of its low energy consumption, SWAC is very well adapted to long utilization hours.
