We now offer the SolarCool Solar Thermal Air Conditioner. This system combines a state-of-the-art high-efficiency 2-stage air conditioning system integrated with a Proprietary Solar Thermal Collector Panel. This is the most energy-efficient Air Conditioning System available today! The key element is the integrated Solar Thermal Collector super heating the air conditioning system’s refrigerant, which in turn reduces the required work load of the compressor. This then lowers the overall power consumption of the system, saving the environment, energy and money.
Solar Thermal Air Conditioner systems are available in both packaged and split system configurations, and come with a 10-Year Parts and Components Warranty. Call us today to schedule a no cost home survey to see if one can be mounted on your home.
FAQ’s about Solar Air Conditioning
What can I expect on cloudy days?
Efficient, low maintenance evacuated tube collectors produce thermal energy, even on cloudy days.
Who will install the Solar Thermal A/C system?
Installation is performed by Smart72 is highly qualified and certified Installers.
Does this technology qualify for tax credits/rebates?
Yes. To check for current tax and rebate incentives see below.
What is the life expectancy of a Solar Thermal A/C system?
The median life expectancy of the Eco Solar Technologies solar air conditioning and heating systems is 15 years.
Is this technology reliable?
Solar thermal collectors have had 30+ years of success and it was simply combined with modern day HVAC technology to create optimum efficiency and output.
What type of scheduled maintenance is involved with a solar powered A/C unit?
It is suggested that the Solar Collectors be washed off with water periodically. The mechanical portion of the system should have routine maintenance performed bi-annually.
Can the solar collectors for the solar A/C be used for any heating applications?
Yes, when configured as a heat pump system, the unit will provide additional heat in the winter.
What cost benefit does upgrading to a better rated SEER unit provide?
Measuring the efficiency of your current system can be done by finding the SEER rating or (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating usually labeled on your compressor or in a reference guide. EX: If your existing A/C Unit is at a “7” SEER Rating and you upgrade to a “16” SEER rated unit…your saving per month would be approximately 69% with the SolarCool System!
