Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals can install cooling towers, although some specialize in industrial, commercial, or residential systems. Customers may find them online or through referrals. They can contact them via phone or directly through the website.
Many HVAC contractors give out free rate estimates and quotes. They may also offer repair and maintenance services in addition to installation. They may even give a free consultation to customers looking for ideas and tips on the type of wet or dry cooling tower they need to chill their industrial factory, commercial business, or nuclear power generation plant.
Such contractors can sit down with clients to go over the process, and how wet and dry cooling towers work, using the flow of water evaporation or heat transfer and exchange to keep temperatures down. Efficient cooling towers keep energy costs down and use several components such as evaporative condensers, coils, fans, compressors, and motors to help keep water flow chilled and circulating. They can also explain wet-bulb values for major geographic areas and which systems are best for a particular climate.
Manufacturers of cooling towers are another component to this industry. They make and sell the towers that are needed in nuclear power plants and commercial buildings. Their typical customers are contractors and HVAC professionals. Customers can utilize manufacturer websites to find representatives in their area, find replacement parts and units, and investigate products that are environmentally sensitive, safer, and more effective.
Customers can then place orders, usually by speaking with a representative in person or over the phone. These representatives can then arrange for shipment and set-up.
