How Do Marine Air Systems Work?
If you own a boat or yacht in South Florida, chances are that you have a marine air conditioning system for your vessel.
Marine air conditioning systems are essential for keeping you and your guests cool and comfortable, and you shouldn’t go without one--just because you’re on the water doesn’t mean that you won’t get uncomfortable!
Whether you have an air conditioning system on your vessel or not, you may be wondering, how do marine AC systems even work? Well, we’re here to let you know.
The first thing that you should know about a marine AC system is that it removes heat from your cabin, rather than cooling it. But this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t provide you with cool air! The unique design of marine systems pushes out heat and leaves your boat feeling fresh and cool.
Marine air systems achieve this form of cooling with three components:
How It Works:
First: The evaporator of your marine air system collects all the warm and humid air from your cabin in the return, removing this warm air with refrigerant.
Second: The compressor circulates the refrigerant necessary for heat exchange through the marine ac unit.
Third: The condenser condenses the refrigerant, cools it, and sends it back to the compressor.
While similar to your home AC system, marine air systems are an effective and simple cooling system that you can rely on to keep your vessel cool.
