Refrigeration and air conditioning technology
Refrigeration and air conditioning technology is among the most important topics of the 21st century. The development of cooling techniques makes the preservation of perishable food possible in the first place.
The air conditioning of buildings and vehicles has become indispensable due to the legitimate desire for comfort. Although air-conditioning technology and refrigeration are closely related, they are two independent sub-disciplines.
The methods and procedures used to generate cold are referred to as refrigeration technology. The theoretical knowledge used in refrigeration covers the entire field of natural sciences.
Air conditioning technology, which describes a sub-area of supply technology (HVAC), covers the regulation of room temperature, air humidity and air quality. An air conditioning system can heat, cool, humidify, dehumidify and filter. The central element of an air conditioning system is always a refrigerating plant.
