Let TCS help you get the right systems in place for your business. We have experience with towers of all size with hands-on experience installing them in a wide variety of commercial facilities. While the concept of these devices is quite simple - your HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) tower is used to dispose of unwanted heat from a chiller - getting the design right can be challenging. We have the mechanical design experience to ensure your system works great.
We will make sure you get the right unit for the job. You see, water-cooled chillers will typically require less energy to operate than air-cooled chillers. This is because of the process of heat rejection to the tower's water. Due to the design of air-cooled chillers, they are forced to reject heat at the higher dry-bulb temperature. Large office buildings, hospitals, and schools will usually make use of one or more towers as part of their air conditioning systems. As a general rule, industrial towers are much larger than HVAC towers.
In addition to the tower and chiller pairing, cooling towers will also be leveraged in HVAC systems which in which several water-source heat pumps are sharing the same piping loop. Using such system construction, the water being pumped through the system will draw the heat from the condenser of the heat pumps (if working in the cooling mode). The tower's job in this scenario is to pull the heat from the water in the piping circuit and disperse it into the air. On the other hand, during heating cycles, the condensers pull heat from the water circuit and dispense it into the area where heat is needed. When this type of application is being used as a heat source, the tower will typically be shut down.
