Keeping Cool

Friday Apr 11, 2014

With temperatures rising into the 90s and 100s, hot summer days require air conditioning for comfort at home, work or school. Whether you have a room or central air conditioner, all these machines work essentially in the same manner. Through converting gas into liquid, and vice versa, the modern air conditioner cools the home based on a set thermostat. However, all air conditioners need energy to continue their cooling process.

Typical Energy Source

For most homes, the typical air conditioning energy source is electricity. Room air conditioners often work with basic wall outlets, whereas central air systems need hard-wired electrical connections to a dedicated circuit. All that electricity, however, comes from burning fossil fuels. Coal burned by the main electrical supplier generates the energy necessary for the entire neighborhood. Some suppliers have access to wind power, especially in desert or mountainous areas where windy passes exist.

Alternative Source

One of the most innovative ways to power your AC is through solar energy. Because AC units are usually needed on sunny, hot days, a solar-powered system makes sense. Solar panels soak in the sunlight radiation, providing direct power to the AC system. There is no need to connect the system to the main electrical grid, saving you money and conserving natural resources. Although these systems are relatively new, they are gaining ground in the AC system industry.

Basic AC Operation

All AC units use refrigerant to move hot air out of the home. For a central system, the refrigerant enters the outside unit where the compressor and condenser reside. The refrigerant gas is pressurized, turning it into a liquid. During the process, hot air is released through the system’s fins. The liquid refrigerant moves to the indoor evaporator unit. Hot air from the home moves across the evaporator, allowing the refrigerant to absorb the heat. The liquid refrigerant turns to a gas as it absorbs the heat, effectively allowing cool air to sweep out of the system and into the individual rooms. Find out who do go to among all your Texas Electric Companies.

Sizing For Energy Savings

Each AC unit is designed for a specific square footage range. Ideally, you need 20 BTU, or British Thermal Units, to cool one square foot of space. An AC professional can help you estimate your home’s needs, or you can research units yourself. Each model offers understandable square footage amounts. Simply measure your home’s square footage and match it to a unit. If a system is too small for your home, it will not cool it effectively. Large units waste energy, costing you money throughout their lifespans.

An AC unit is a necessity in hot regions. Take a look at your system to determine its energy source. When you are in the market for a new system, you may want to consider alternative energy sources to save money and conserve energy.

What Subplot Of Deep Impact Should Have Been Omitted

Friday Jun 28, 2013

The 1998 movie “Deep Impact” featured a powerful message of hope and survival, but the film has often been criticized for its many subplots. In trying to make a movie that everyone could relate to, the filmmakers ended up with an overstuffed film that could use fewer subplots.

Perhaps the most confusing and useless subplot involves the lead character of Jenny Lerner, played by Tea Leoni. Jenny is an ace reporter at a major news network, Read the rest of this entry »

Deep Impact and Armageddon

Friday Jan 13, 2012

If you’re a movie nut and you get all your movie channels from places like http://www.directstartv.com/localchannels/Cal then chances are you have seen both of these movies and scratched your head at the almost blatant similarities. For the sake of clarification, I’ll explain, briefly, what each movie is about and then we will compare them.

Deep Impact was released in 1998. It was a disaster movie about an imminent threat to Earth in the form of a comet. Humanity held lotteries to save as many civilians as they could and a team of scientists were launched into space to land on the comet and destroy it.

Armageddon came out a mere two months after Deep Impact. In Armageddon, a team of oil drilling experts are conscripted by NASA to land on a planet-destroying meteor in hopes of drilling deep enough to destroy it before it makes planet fall.

The two sound the same on paper but if you ever saw these movies you would know that they are far from the same. For starters, Deep Impact was much more plausible and contained some intelligent and challenging drama. Instead of going for the Hollywood, everyone lives happily ever after ending – Deep Impact gave us a real look at the consequences of such a disaster and that is why Deep Impact, despite similarities, is still light years ahead of Armageddon.

Was The Soundtrack Of Deep Impact Worthwhile

Thursday Sep 29, 2011

Deep Impact had a very effective soundtrack for what it was trying to go for. It definitely set the scene with the music and captured the emotion and feeling of what was going on. It beautifully illustrates scenes after they find out the comet is going to hit. Everyone realizes that its going to happen and a sad overtone melody and soft symphony matches many of the scenes perfect. Even when the action picks up when things are frantic, the music Read the rest of this entry »

Was Deep Impact Considered Science Fiction Or Drama

Tuesday Sep 27, 2011

Deep Impact was a great film, but was it science fiction or drama? Is it really that far fetched that a meteor could strike earth and kill off a large portion of civilization? While the likelihood of a meteor strike of that magnitude is not high, it is relatively believable. It is for that reason I would call it more of a drama. While the story line may come across as science fiction to many, the drama of it sticks out in my Read the rest of this entry »
