What is Solar Assisted Air Conditioning?
Your air conditioner utilizes a compressor to compress a refrigerant and create heat. To operate that compressor you need lots of electricity – in fact about 40% of the world’s energy is used for cooling and heating. The thermal energy generated by the SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanel™ adds heat to the system’s refrigerant. This allows the compressor to operate in low stage while achieving full BTU output, decreasing the compressor’s workload and in turn reducing the electrical power consumed by the A/C system’s compressor by up to 40%.
