What Is Condensation?

How many of us have went out of our way to shop for a glass, tumbler, or cup that will not “sweat”. There is nothing I dislike more than grabbing a cup with water droplets! These water droplets/sweat are also known as condensation.

Condensation can be in many more places than just our favorite tumbler. One major place of concern of condensation is in the HVAC System.

Condensation occurs when water vapor in the air comes into contact with something cool. Molecules slow down and get closer together & the gaseous water vapors turn back into liquid water drops (condensation). Seems kind of harmless on our cups but in an HVAC System this can cause so much damage and cost a great deal of money.

Years ago, Lynn Burkhart- President of CRT, visited a very prestigious resort in Florida. An esteemed guest had a not-so-pleasant experience in the resort.  There was a leak on the floor above, this leak damaged several expensive belongings of said guest. Can you imagine the frustration of the guest and embarrassment of the resort?


Do you know how this leak occurred? That’s right. Condensation from the HVAC’s drain pans had overflowed and leaked into the room, from the ceiling. Yikes! There is never a good reason for water to emit from the AC Unit. That is a true sign that the unit needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care). Whether it’s maintenance, repairing, or replacing. 

PM (Preventative Maintenance) is important to the health of your HVAC system. A checkup once or twice a year will help to detect & prevent an issue before it occurs. 

You can also be proactive by providing a time-released drain pan treatment PanGuard (Certified Green) or Algae Guard (EPA Registered) to keep your drain clean & free from over flows.

We’d love to hear any condensation stories you have. Please give us a call, comment, or simply shoot us an email. We look forward to chatting with you.

National Geographic: 5 AC Designs Inspired by Nature

More often than not, my favorite response to every question is, “I’ll Google It” or “I can Google faster than you”. Very often I run across a word that I’ve never heard before and have to google the definition.

This week I discovered the word:

Biomimicry

bi·o·mim·ic·ry
ˌbīōˈmiməkrē/
noun
  1. the design and production of materials, structures, and systems that are modeled on biological entities and processes.

I ran across this word in an article by National Geographic. National Geographic stated, “Designers are turning to biomimicry to develop better cooling technologies. Air Conditioning uses a tremendous amount of energy, but a new group of designers think they can solve that problem by mimicking Mother Nature’s craftiness.” 

Who knew that Nature & Air Conditioning had so much in common.

“These designs suggest some of what could be learned by applying the lessons of biomimicry to the problem of air-conditioning in particular.”

Fire passes over a termite mound. Here is an image of termite mounds that have survived the worst of blistering hot conditions. Thanks to google I found termites have had quite the influence over our ventilation, heating, & cooling.

Many species of termites in the world live in termite mounds. These termite mounds are made up of soil, mud, chewed wood, saliva, and feces. Oddly enough, the combination make the mounds super strong & even fire resistant. The mound will consist of “chimneys” that allow warm air inside the mound to vent upward and outward. Apparently, termites are quite smart. They open and close a series of vents throughout their mound to allow airflow and circulation, keeping the mound from overheating.

Any of this sound familiar? How amazing that these annoying creatures have inspired our ventilation!
