Package Air Conditioner Units Gold Coast & Tweed Heads

Window and split system air conditioners are usually used for smaller air conditioning requirements, up to 5 tons. Whereas central air conditioning systems are used where the capacity exceeds 20 tons. Packaged air conditioners are used for cooling requirements in between these two limits. The packaged air conditioners are commonly used in places like restaurants, large homes, small halls, etc and are available fixed rated capacities of 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 tons.
As the name implies, in packaged air conditioners, all the important components are enclosed in a single casing outdoor unit that sits on either the roof or to the side of a building. The air is then cooled and filtered into the building by a maze of duct work which is connected to the various rooms.
Packaged air conditioners are divided into two types: ones with air cooled condensers and the ones with a water cooled condenser. 

Air Cooled Package Units

In this packaged air conditioner the condenser of the refrigeration system is cooled by the ambient air. There is an outdoor unit that comprises of the condenser, compressor and in some cases the expansion valve. The outdoor unit can be kept on the patio or any other open space where the free flow of the ambient air is available. 

The fan located inside this unit sucks the outside air and blows it over the condenser coil cooling it in the process. Packaged AC’s with air cooled condensers are used more commonly than water cooled condensers since air is freely available. In some situations it is difficult maintain the continuous flow of water.

Water Cooled Packaged Units

These models provide improved operational efficiency plus lower noise and vibration thanks to their advanced scroll compressor. More precise, simplified temperature control is afforded by the two refrigerant circuits and the ability to adjust settings from a machine room.

In these packaged air conditioners the condenser is cooled by water. The water has to be supplied continuously to maintain a functioning air conditioning system. The condenser is separated into two parts, shell and tube, with refrigerant flowing along the tube side and the cooling water flowing along the shell side. 

Water cooled packaged units have the capacity to handle large volume of air required for cooling a number of rooms. Since all the components are assembled at the factory, the high quality of the packaged unit is ensured. The unit can be transported very easily to the site and is installed on a level surface.
