What is Refrigeration and Air Conditioning?

Refrigeration keeps the cold air close, air conditioning pushes it away. Refrigeration uses coolant alone, air conditioning also uses the air from outside. Refrigeration deals with cooling and freezing, air conditioning deals with cooling and dehumidifying the air.

Refrigeration and air-conditioning end-uses typically use a refrigerant in a vapor compression cycle to cool and/or dehumidify a substance or space, like a refrigerator cabinet, room, office building, or warehouse. Advanced Diploma of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering provides competencies to design and validate/evaluate refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and systems, manage risk, estimate and manage projects and provide technical advice/sales. Refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics install, maintain, repair and overhaul industrial, commercial and residential refrigeration and air conditioning systems and their component parts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which degree is best for air conditioner?

According to the Department of Energy1, 78° Fahrenheit is the sweet spot for air conditioners to balance energy savings and comfort when people are at home and need cooling. But in reality, this is a question that doesn’t have a “one size fits all” answer.

What does a refrigeration engineer do?

A Refrigeration Engineer works on commercial, residential, public and industrial projects, including transportation and storage. They will plan and design, install, test, commission, report, maintain, fault find and repair systems to a high standard.

Is refrigeration and air conditioning hard?

For many, HVAC training is not hard to complete. In fact, HVAC is no more difficult to learn than any other trade, but you should be prepared to learn in various ways. Some people assume because HVAC is very hands-on work that, it’s possible to learn just by taking a system apart and putting it back together again.

What is the benefit of refrigeration and air conditioning?

A refrigerated system dehumidifies the air, removing hot air, humidity, and harmful bacteria while sending clean, cool air back into your space. Unlike evaporative systems, refrigerated air conditioning only uses air that’s already inside your property.

What is advanced diploma and diploma?

Definition: An advanced diploma gives a person a more advanced qualification given by an educational institute for the completion of a longer study programme. A diploma is a certificate that is given by an educational institution for the completion of their study programme.
