I have been reading about heating and cooling applications in subway systems

So between the braking plus the use of the coolers, these subways have become a undoubtedly hot locale

Not so long ago, I was looking into the real reasons for subway stations being so hot… It’s interesting that a long time ago, subway cars didn’t even have cooling systems of any kind. I couldn’t even imagine how uncomfortable that must have been; the thing is, the cooling system systems on these subway cars is what causes a great amount of the heat in subway stations these mornings on my way to my job. They say there is technology that exists to make people guess that they are more comfortable while waiting in the subway stations, however they don’t have any remote plans for implementing this technology anytime soon. And so while the subway cars keep that cooling system cranked up, the heat from the subway cars is officially expelled into the subway stations. This makes it tremendously hot plus uncomfortable in these particular areas. The more comfortable subway stations will be those that don’t have more than two or three trains running through them! Also, another cause of the large amount of heat is the braking system for these large subway trains… Because these trains weigh such a large amount, the braking energy used for stopping these trains converts into high heat. So between the braking plus the use of the coolers, these subways have become a undoubtedly hot locale. It’s honestly no wonder why so more than just a few people carry portable fans to try to keep cool. I honestly do hope that in the future, they will start implementing more comfortable temperature control systems in the subways so that people can really be more comfortable for a change. And of course, to take on such an implementation of temperature control, it would easily cost a fortune.
