Why are water cooled chillers more efficient than air cooled chillers?


Water-cooled chiller systems have a cooling tower, thus they feature higher efficiency than air-cooled chillers. Water-cooled chillers are more efficient because they condense depending on the ambient temperature bulb temperature, which is lower than the ambient dry bulb temperature.
