Solar air-conditioning is used worldwide and has a good reputation due to its reliability, effectiveness, and low energy consumption and also of course because of its environmental benefits. Unlike conventional air-conditioning systems, which use CFC, HCFC, and HFC gases, and in recent years the R32 a propane gas based product for the absorption of heat, the solar air-conditioning system uses ammonia, a biodegradable refrigerant fluid first used when the original air-conditioning system consisted of an ice cube inside an insulated wooden box.  Now, 100 years later, after the competition for increased efficiency, which has always been a key factor of success in every industry, new refrigerant fluids are being developed to meet our environmental concerns. The latest refrigerant fluid/gas being considered is CO2 together with more promising propane-based refrigerants. Ammonia is not popular because of its strong odor. The ammonia and water mixture fluid in refrigeration and air-conditioning system are generally located externally and used as a chiller system, cooling a saltwater solution in a closed-loop system is pumped it to the required cooling location. This type of cooling system is very efficient. It is well suited for domestic, commercial, and industrial applications and is the perfect system to run your air-conditioning. It is powered by a constant supply of 95 degrees Celsius water temperature as the energy source to generate the cold. Operating via remote control as the conventional system on the wall, a water pump will be activated for the supply of cold water at 4Cº to your indoor unit on the wall as required. The water is cooled on-demand as your heat load increases or decreases. This system has the advantage that it can use the heat generated by the sun, whereas an instantaneous gas hot-water system serves as a backup. The system can deliver enormous savings and environmental benefits, addressing issues more effectively than any other cooling system available.


Example: Room/shop 10m x 10m x 2.5m in height well-insulated no additional heat load with closed doors, requires 12 kW Cooling capacity = 4,0 kW/h compressor power consumption. Please note: Solar air-conditioning requires gas boosted hot water supply in cloudy weather. (Natural Gas cost is not included in the example)
