Abstract: In hot humid climates, such as the Guwahati, the air-cooling process of air conditioner can result in considerable amounts of water. In this paper quality and quantity analysis of condensate of air conditioner at the environmental condition of Guwahati city is done. Further estimation and forecasting the amount of condensate generation in Guwahati city is done for the next five years based on the sales of 1.5-ton split air conditioner. It is observed that only a single 1.5-ton AC can generate an average amount of 1.68 litters/hour of condensate in a typical day of August in the climatic condition of Guwahati. Further in this paper one attempt is made to find out the condensate generate potential of a 1.5-ton split air conditioner when the evaporator coil is integrated with a mixed air ventilation system (MAVS). It is observed that with MAVS the same1.5-ton split air conditioner can generate condensate of amount 2.30 Liters/hr.
