Welcome to the AIR House laboratory!
05/10/2013 - Another busy day at Orange County Great Park. Santa Ana winds still proof solar village homes, but all teams started early in the morning to perform competition tasks as usual. Lucie and Bara our appliances contest specialists are in charge of that.
In the morning, they pick up 6kg of towels to wash and dry them. The towels must have the same weight before and after laundering. For the first time we did the cooking contest: vaporize 2,3 liters of water within 2 hours. And there was two hot water contests today. We had to deliver 15 gallons (56.8 l) of hot water (110°F/43.3°C) in 10 minutes or less.
While performing all these tasks, the comfort zone contest is running. The AIR House temperature and humidity has to be comfortable night & day. During specified periods, measurement occurs. For full points, we have to keep the temperature between 22.2°C (71°F) and 24.4°C (76°F) and relative humidity less than 60%.
