Integrated HVAC and Water Generation
An integrated HVAC system simultaneously conditions air and produces water by condensation of humidity. The heat exchanger and chiller of the HVAC system are optimized to maximize condensation and integrated filtration systems can produce potable water. HVAC systems already produce water condensate, but an integrated approach suggests collecting this condensate and treating it for potable reuse.

How Does It Work
The HVAC system takes in warm, humid air.
The condenser cools the air to below the dew point, forcing condensation of water.
Condensed water is collected and treated for reuse.
