I live on a boat the water 6feet below me is 55 deg
the idwa that I can cool my living space with a water pump evaparator
coil and a fan has been itching in my head for some time
the windoe units I use to cool the boat add up to 2.5 tons
I can get junk A/C from local contractors ( people I have worked for in
the past )
now I want to use 100% frish air and open and close windows to regulate
so my question is what size coil do I need ?
I will be useing a carrier or a heatpump coil maybe even repiping the
coil to allow more water to flow through it
An old evap will not work (most likely 3/8" OD)....you need more surface
area....like a hot water heating coil (mayb 1/2" or 5/8" OD), but send
chilled water through it. Also don't for the condensation from the
coil....drain pain, drain and etc
I will contact the EPA and have you shut down for raising the water
temperature and disturbing the fish....
Just kidding... but I've seen that logic used at power plants where they
raise the water temp..... in their own cooling lagoon... by more than 1
I have never seen one of these not broken down for copper
you would almost have to be on the job site at the time it's
pulled out to get one of these used and hope that it wasn't droped 10'
I do know how to braze freon lines I doubt I would have much of a
problem repiping a coil to get enought water through the coil
my pump will give me at least 1000gph at the head I plan to install this
it just realy bothers me that I have this almost free resource that
I haven't taped
I also live at a boat harbor electric rates are about 3 times what you
woud pay at your house like $0.40@KWH in the summer $0.20@KWH winter
