Efficient humidification in buildings.

Energy and environmental protection aspects of dessicant cooling.

Ventilation and air conditioning systems mainly use fossile primary energies as gas, oil and coal for the heating and cooling processes. Air conditioning means heating and humidifying the supply air during the winter season and cooling and dehumidifying the supply air in the summer season. For these summer operations the supply air in general is cooled down lower than the dew point in order to dehumidify the air by condensation. Afterwords the supply air is reheated again to reach the required temperature level for room inlet.
