About TechniCold

Technicold Services was established in 1996 as platform to afford skilled artisans, who had not previously been given the opportunities for growth and development, the platform and to develop the necessary skills, which had not been readily available to Technician of colour.

We believe that we do not employ people they employ themselves, by taking ownership of tasks allotted to them, and thereby performing beyond expectation and going That extra mile! Not only for their clients, but also for themselves, thus developing a culture of excellence in all aspects of their lives.

Air Conditioning

We offer you a wide range of air conditioning solutions, varying from split type units for your home, over VRV systems for large spaces and even powerful chillers for industrial use.

About Air Conditioning

  1. Indoor Unit A fan blows the hot indoor air over a heat exchanging coil through which cold refrigerant flows. The cold refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air and cooled air is blown into the room.
  2. Copper Piping The refrigerant circulates through the units and the piping and takes the heat from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit.
  3. Outdoor Unit Through compression, the refrigerant gas is heated and its boiling point increases. In the outdoor unit the obtained heat throught compression is released to the outdoor air by means of a fan which blows the outdoor air over a heat exchanging coil.
  4. Refrigerant The liquid refrigerant flows back to the indoor unit.
  5. Indoor Unit Back in the indoor unit, the refrigerant is decompressed and thus enabled to extract heat form the indoor air.

How it works

The compressor which pumps the refrigerant around the system increases. In the outdoor the compressor which pumps the refrigerant around the system, is the heart of the air conditioner. Before the compressor, the refrigerant is a gas at low pressure. Because of the compressor, the gas becomes high pressure, gets heated and flows towards the condenser unit.

An air conditioner works similar to a refrigerator.
The refrigerant flows through the system, and changes in state or condition. There are four processes in the 'refrigeration cycle' The c The compressor which pumps the refrigerant around the system, is the heart of the air conditioner. Before the compressor, the refrigerant is a gas at low pressure. Because of the compressor, the gas The compressor which pumps the refrigerant around the system, is the heart of the air conditioner. Before the compressor, the refrigerant is a gas at low pressure. Because of the compressor, the gas becomes high pressure, gets heated and flows towards the condenser. At the condenser, the high temperature, high pressure gas releases its heat to the outdoor air and becomes subcooled high pressure liquid.

The high pressure liquid goes through the expansion valve, which reduces the pressure, and thus temperature goes below the temperature of the refrigerated space. This results in cold, low pressure refrigerant liquid.

The low pressure refrigerant flows to the evaporator where it absorbs heat from the indoor air throught evaporation and becomes low pressure gas. The gas flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts all over again.

Why we need Air Conditioning

With air conditioning you can create the comfort in which you feel best, with the right temperature and a comfortable humidity. Modern air conditioners produce clean, healthy fresh air, dehumidify the air and prevent mold. All of this is able with neither draught nor noise.

In short, air conditioning makes you feel better, more active and fit, resulting in many advantages, because when you who feel better you are more creative and productive. And who doesn't like to be in a shop, café, restaurant or hotel with air conditioning, certainly in the summer?

The design & planning of your air conditioning system is based on the individual layout of your building and it's environment. The physical area, amount of persons and the electrical equipment operating in each room are among the several factors in the design & planning of your installation. As well as this, the many types of units that are available must be taken into account. Technicold Services will use their expert knowledge and the best in software programs to define the most efficient system for your requirements.

Choosing the right Equipment

Creating the right climate is a complex matter. Several factors determine which equipment is the best solution for you. Be sure to be guided by an installer. Here are already some things to keep in mind.
  • To what extent do you want to control the indoor climate?
    Do you want cooling only? Or do you also want ventilation and/or heating? The choice will determine the type of system.
  • How many rooms?
    The number of rooms will determine the system. In case of more than one room it is possible to connect several indoor units to one outdoor unit.
  • Which kind of room(s)?
    A shop? An office? A bedroom or living room? Each application requires its own system.
  • Capacity?
    A system with too high capacity will lead to draught, fluctuating temperatures and high energy bills. With a too low capacity you will never reach the desired temperature. Choosing the right capacity is mainly having an installer calculate the capacity need. He will take into account the influences on the capacity need like solar infiltration, lighting, number of occupants, etc.
  • Place of the outdoor unit?
    The outdoor unit should get an appropriate place, on a solid base and accessible for maintenance.
  • Place of the indoor unit?
    The choice of the model will be determined by the possibilities to place the unit. Is there a false ceiling? Is there free space on the wall? Etc. Also the location of the unit is of great importance. Each unit has its own air distribution pattern. A wrong location may lead to draught and sound.
  • Weather durability?
    Mind the weather durability of the outdoor unit. This will determine the lifetime of the installation.
  • Air purification?
    The dust particles floating in the air can be removed by means of filters in the indoor units. Depending on the level of filtration we offer different filters.
  • Selection of the installer?
    The most important is to be advised by a good installer. He will calculate, draw up and install the required system according to your needs. His skilled advice and craftsmanship will ensure you of a good climate.

The Environment

Throughout the last 50 years or so the basic building blocks of life – air, water and the earth – have been systematically subjected to increasing levels of pollution with little regard to the potentially devastating effects on future generations.

Recently, however, concern has grown regarding climate changes, acid rain, water and air pollution and the constant degradation of Earth’s natural resources. The very technology that created these problems is now being harnessed to halt and reverse them. Depletion of the ozone layer and global warming have been highlighted and are now being addressed. Government legislation prohibiting the use of toxic substances and the generation of pollutants has slowed down the destruction of the environment.
