The objectives of this study are to evaluate the water-cooled technology for residential cooling applications. A split air-cooled and a prototype water-cooled air-conditioner was set up for experimental test at different indoor and outdoor conditions. The units' cooling output, power consumption and coefficient of performance (COP) were calculated as baselines for comparison. The experimental results showed that the water-cooled air-conditioners (WACs) output more cooling load and cost less power than air-cooled air-conditioners ( AACs). The COP of WACs increases in the range of 7.23%∼28.6%. The performance characteristics of WACs were modeled based on the experimental data and the predictions agree...
