Best HVAC Videos: Part III

Posted May 21, 2012 8:00 AM by larhere

Periodically I scan the horizon for new videos to add to our Best HVAC Videos Library. These are not training videos, but rather unique videos providing unusual and informative insights to the HVAC industry. The following are being added to our library to compete among the best of the best.

The first is actually a family of Videos found at TED.com which includes this just posted video:

Amory Lovins: A 50-year plan for energy

Talk filmed at TED's offices, energy theorist Amory Lovins lays out the steps we must take to end the world's dependence on oil (before we run out). Some changes are already happening -- like lighter-weight cars, integrated building design and smarter trucks.

Trane Air Conditioner - How It's Made

A close-up look at the production and testing of this world class residential air conditioner in Trane's Tyler, TX plant. Includes a detailed look at how the unique spine fin coil is manufactured and assembly processes for the complete outdoor unit. Extreme testing for relialbity is included.

Time lapse of manufacturing a large Innovent custom air handler unit which compresses three weeks into 3 minutes.

Breakthrough Video: Desiccant Enhanced Evaporative Air Conditioning (DEVAP)

Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) invented a breakthrough technology that improves air conditioning in a novel way-with heat. NREL combined desiccant materials, which remove moisture from the air using heat, and advanced evaporative technologies to develop a cooling unit that uses 90% less electricity and up to 80% less total energy than traditional air conditioning (AC).
