Avi Polischuk, a member of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America and the Building Trades Association, possesses 15 years of experience in the construction and real estate development field. Currently, Avi Polischuk owns and operates R&S United Services, a company that integrates energy-efficient heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems into New York City high-rises.
Among the many solutions for making HVAC systems more energy efficient is the use of adiabatic cooling, which is widely used by New York engineers in the construction of residential high-rises. This process, used in evaporative pre-cooling systems, has the ability to lower air temperatures by as much as 30 percent. As a result, the amount of energy consumption also decreases.
Most efficient in warmer surroundings, adiabatic cooling employs wetted media to drop air temperature. Hot, dry airstreams flow across wetted media and in return, exchange 90 percent of the sensible heat for latent heat and increase relative air humidity. Once released, the chilled air creates a cooler environment.
