Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jul2007, Vol. 79 Issue 7, p20
The article offers information on spot-cooling systems, a cooling system which usually serves as a supplement to existing air conditioning or as a redundancy solution. Some of the spot-cooling applications most common during summer include cooling older buildings lacking central air conditioning and maintaining temperatures in server rooms and data centers. Spot-cooling portable systems come in two types including air-cooled and water-cooled units.
