What are Solar Air Conditioners & how do they work?
The Solar Cool™ system uses the sun and one solar collector to super heat and pressurize environmentally friendly R410 and this delivers the most energy efficient solar air conditioner solution available in the world right now.
The solar collector then sends the R410 to the condenser, where the cooling of the dense pressurized refrigerant takes place. The solar assisted compressor is generating less pressure, resulting in fewer amps consumed by the system.
A conventional air conditioner uses an electrical mechanical device (compressor) to create pressure and heat to make the refrigerant hot.
With solar air conditioners ,we use the solar panel along with the radiation from the sun to accomplish the same task and the end result is less electric is needed to operate your air conditioning. It’s not rocket science, but it is very effective.

How much energy can Solar air conditioners save ?
A study* was done on two air conditioning units to quantify the energy consumption and the energy savings of the newly introduced solar air conditioners. Results show that if a variable drive air conditioning unit is replaced by the similar sized Solar Cool air conditioning unit that 66% – 77% and on average 73.6% of the electrical energy consumed may be saved.
