Airconditioning is no longer just cooling. Just as in the case of developed countries, in India also the concepts of Indoor Air Quality and Energy Efficiency are gaining importance. The customers, leading consultants and project managers are seeking high quality of Indoor Air, and scientifically proven terminologies such as "Productive Office", "Sick Building Syndrome", "Indoor Air Quality Management" are being talked about. Fresh air brings in good environment, but in an airconditioned space, fresh air also adds to the heatload, because fresh air is warmer than the airconditioned space. Therefore, while managing to provide adequate quantity of fresh air, one must keep the heatload under control, and also achieve power savings at the same time.
