The International Space Station: Heating And Air Con

The International Space Station orbits the Earth at a height of around 400 km. One of the many difficulties the ISS has is keeping a livable atmosphere in the void of space. This blog will look at how the ISS’s special heating and cooling systems handle temperature extremes.

The Future Of Air Conditioning in Homes and Businesses

You may think that your AC system works perfectly well and it does not need renovating or redesigning. However, as we are in the midst of a climate crisis there doesn’t really seem like a better time than now to rethink AC Installations that emit far too much greenhouse gases and speed up global warming.

Why AC Conditioning Needs Rethinking

Although the fundamental physics behind air conditioners has not changed much since they were originally developed almost a century ago, the threat they pose to life on Earth is growing.
