I'm just curious about induction heating.
I've read and looked at it diagrammatically the different induction systems and there is a commonality in that they are basically using a portion of the existing conditioned room/ space's air drawn into the room's new fresh air/ supply and it seems like a regular mixing box to then supply the combined air to the space. I do a lot of medical and the only instance I can think of where we wouldn't be reusing the room's air like this is in a very special isolation room, with 100% dedicated exhaust.
Is the big aspect here that the air WITHIN the room is being reused to initially temper the new air, while it's getting conditioned with via the cold/ hot water or it seems like fan coil terminals would also be doing this, but maybe not able to reuse as much of the room's existing air as it would rely on convective currents only to pull in the room's existing air.
Also the diagram of the heat closed-loop heat pump, unless the heat pump is actually identified, seems very similar as well.
Hydronic convectors are similar, but from my experience, those are only really heat sources, and NOT cooling at all. And those do not deal with ventilation.
In these instances, there is no real supply ductwork, which is a huge space and installation savings, so at each location you'd require a fresh air intake through the building's exterior, so a slew of exterior penetrations (but that's another pro/ con discussion).
Maybe I'm overthinking things . Am I OK with the above?
Any good sources online to explain these? I've been reviewing the ASC and it's quite good overall with reviewing the different systems and their pros and cons.
