Why don't AC units run condensate over the outdoor condenser coils?

Designing a product for installation at site means that the designer has no idea or control over where the condenser coils are going to be. Will they be located over a door step? Over a car park? ...

How much extra energy is needed to operate a large scale battery energy storage system (BESS)?

So how much extra energy does it take to collect, transport, and dump 5000 J/s of heat from the battery bank? Closed loop liquid cooling systems tend to have a COP of about 3.5. COP is kW/ton. So ...

Why don't AC units run condensate over the outdoor condenser coils?

There are indeed proposals to combine the air conditioner's heat pump action with that of evaporative cooling to increase the overall efficiency of the air conditioner. One way is to run the cold ...

Using the electrolysis of water to cool a room

There's a reason no one has heard of this Electrolysis doesn't absorb heat from its environment. The change in energy state between water and hydrogen/oxygen gas is equal to the electrical energy ...

Water Cooling - Straight pipe vs. Coil Heat Exchanger

The individual loops in the coil are closer together in the second configuration than in the first (I think the gaps are about $29\,\mathrm{mm}$ in the first configuration, about $4\,\mathrm{mm}$ in ...

Why don't AC units run condensate over the outdoor condenser coils?

Window units blow the condensate over the condenser. I suspect that issue is that you haven't seen the nastiness that condensate lines turn into. You don't want that all over your condenser pad and ...

Using the electrolysis of water to cool a room

You have referenced a process with a Co-efficient Of Performance of 0.25. According to Wikipedia, "Most air conditioners have a COP of 2.3 to 3.5" You suggest that, if the energy could be ...
