Solar Powered Air Conditioning Units: Past And Present

The Romans' Ancient Solar Powered Air conditioning Unit

It evokes marvel to know that the Romans, in their acme of civilization, used a natural type of air conditioning or ventilation. They used to dig a trench simply leading from their home to about 100-200 yards in a straight line away from the house. A pipe and chimney were fitted in it such that the heated air in the chimney would rise, drawing air through the cool pipeline. The pipeline, which was underground, cooled the air to the temperature of the earth. This cool air was allowed to circulate through the house to keep its temperature lower than outside.

The Modern Solar Powered Air conditioning Unit.

With the development of Direct Absorption (DFA) in Japan in the 1960s, solar cooling technology took off. In 2004, BROAD Air Conditioning Co. Ltd. offered an American client with the first solar powered air conditioning unit. It has actually worked extremely well. Today, it is possible to cool off the heat produced by the sun by means of battery-powered air conditioners such that the battery is charged by solar energy. The solar modules charge the battery during the day, when the sun is high, while the solar powered air conditioning unit can be utilized anytime.

Direct Cool Air Conditioning Inc. has created its own energy efficient DC Airco units. These solar air conditioners consume less than half the power requirement of an AC input system. They are great cooling devices for small homes and cottages, industrial buildings, telecommunication cabinets, and so on. A few of these air conditioners can be utilized to cool a bigger structure. Since the units run on low voltage (24/48 DC) batteries, they are perfect for replacing expensive external generators. These cooling units are available as wall-mounted devices.

Benefits of DC Airco Solar Conditioners.

DC Airco Solar Conditioners consume less power and supply greater cooling. They can be used anywhere in the world because they are not frequency reliant. They do not require Genset for power supply, and do not require an inverter.Go To This Webpage\nFor more Information go to
