Condensate water generated from air conditioning system is often
treated as wastewater and discharged to the building drainage
system. In this study, controlled experiments have been carried out
to assess generation of condensate water under different weather
and operational conditions. The most important parameters affecting
condensate water generation are time, difference between outdoor
and indoor temperature and humidity. The difference between
outdoor and indoor humidity has been found to affect generation of
condensate water most significantly; as the difference increases,
water generation increases. Water generation also increases as the
difference between indoor and outdoor temperature increases. The
experimental results have been used to develop and validate an
empirical relationship for estimating generation of condensate water.
Apart from estimation of condensate water generation in residential
and commercial buildings, the relationship could be used to properly
design condensate water drainage system of air conditioners. The
quantity of condensate water generated from air conditioning system
appears to be quite significant. Recycling of condensate water could
reduce water demand from city water supply system particularly
during the hot and humid months of the year, thus reducing pressure
on precious ground and surface water resources.
