Abstract:

Under static conditions, the application of improved insulation to ambulance walls does not reduce interior air temperatures to desirable levels. In hot climates, reduction of temperature within the ambulance to an acceptable level for comfort of occupants requires the use of mechanical refrigeration. Wall insulation is desirable in order to keep the size of the cooling equipment at a minimum. The excess temperature within an ambulance over that of the outside air can be kept at a minimum if adequate wall insulation is employed in conjunction with forced ventilation. Author
