OUCooling District Energy Services
Gracias al sistema de enfriamiento de aire acondicionado OUCooling, los propietarios de edificios están disfrutando de reducciones en los cargos relacionados con el servicio de aire acondicionado y a su vez están minimizando sus costos operativos y de capital. Este servicio innovador y confiable permite que los propietarios de edificios comerciales subcontraten la producción de enfriamiento del agua para el funcionamiento de las unidades de aire acondicionado. Chilled water systems are approximately 25 percent more energy efficient than traditional air conditioning systems.

What is OUCooling?
OUCooling, also known as Chilled Water Services, consists of the production and distribution of chilled water between 39ºF and 42ºF for air conditioning applications. The chilled water is generated at centralized energy plants and delivered through an underground piping system to a wide variety of subscribed customers, including residential, commercial, institutional and industrial facilities.  Services are offered to prospective customers as an alternative to other air conditioning options they may be considering.  Typically, OUCooling services require a contractual commitment of twenty years.

Como funciona el sistema de enfriamiento OUCooling
Todos los sistemas de aire acondicionado en los edificios funcionan por medio de serpentines de agua refrigerada. Warm air blown over these coils, cooling the air as it passes through. Con OUCooling, todos los equipos usados para enfriar el agua (torre de enfriamiento, bomba y equipo utilizado para el proceso de enfriamiento del agua) se albergan en una instalación central. At the facility, water is cooled to 39ºF and piped to participating buildings to cool them. El agua es entonces reciclada en las instalaciones centrales para ser enfriada nuevamente y empezar un nuevo ciclo Actualmente, OUC opera dos plantas de enfriamiento de agua agua que prestan servicios a Parramore y a los negocios del centro de la ciudad de Orlando. Underground “loops” run from each facility to buildings partnered with OUCooling.

For Residential Customers
OUCooling replaces the traditional outside air conditioning unit for residential customers. Each residential customer still has an air handler on the inside of their unit, which is not an OUC piece of equipment, it is owned by the building. Next to the air handler, likely inside the same closet, there is an OUC meter that measures the amount of chilled water used to cool the home. If the resident turns off their thermostat and notices the meter continuing to move, then there is possibly a defective valve inside the pipe which is supposed to close when the air conditioner is not in use. Contact OUC and we will work closely with building management to ensure the problem is repaired.

Looking Towards the Future
El programa OUCooling fue creado en 1997, y el primer proyecto fue construir una planta de agua refrigerada para Lockheed Martin en el sur del condado de Orange. Al año siguiente, OUC construyó una planta de "refrigeración de distrito" en el centro de la ciudad de Orlando para prestar servicios al creciente y diverso mercado de esta área. OUC espera construir otras plantas de refrigeración para poder dar este servicio a establecimientos comerciales, tales como propiedades vacacionales de tiempo compartido, hoteles y centros comerciales minoristas.
