DEFINITIONS

  • Absolute Humidity: Amount of moisture in the air, indicated in grains per ft3.
  • Ambient Temperature: Temperature of fluid (usually air) that surrounds an object.
  • Atmospheric Pressure: Pressure that gases in the air exert upon the earth (14.7 psi).
  • Boiler: Closed container in which a liquid may be heated and vaporized.
  • British Thermal Unit (Btu): Quantity of heat required to raise temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit.
  • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s): Refrigerants that are composed of chlorine, fluorine, and a hydrocarbon (methane). CFC’s deplete the ozone layer.
  • Cooling Tower: Device that cools by water evaporation in air. Water is cooled to wet bulb temperature of air.
  • Dew Point: Temperature at which vapor (at 100% humidity) begins to condense and deposit as liquid.
  • Dry Bulb Temperature: Air temperature as indicated by an ordinary thermometer.
  • EER: Energy efficiency rating. The ratio of the rated cooling capacity divided by the amount of electrical power used.
  • Geothermal Heat Pump: A heat pump that uses the constant underground or underwater temperatures as supply.
  • Halide Refrigerants: Family of refrigerants containing halogen chemicals. Halogens are substances containing fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine.
  • Heat Pump: A compression cycle system used to supply heat to temperature- controlled space. The same system can also remove heat from the same space.
  • Montreal Protocol: A 1987 international agreement to reduce and eventually eliminate production of CFC refrigerants.
