What is Solar Assisted Cooling?
Solar Assisted Cooling is an energy savings technology that is proven on 6 continents and in over 7000 installations world-wide. This unique technology uses free power provided by the sun to reduce the demand for cooling and providing LED-type savings for the second largest energy consumer in most facilities – HVAC&R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration).
Compressors use 80% of the energy consumed by HVAC systems. Solar energy increases the effectiveness of the cooling process by making the condensation process more efficient, ultimately leading to a drastic reduction in energy used by the compressors. The less the compressors have to work the more energy and money is saved.
