Solar energy Air Conditioners: Past And Present

The Romans' Ancient Solar Power Air conditioning unit.

It evokes wonder to know that the Romans, in their acme of civilization, made use of a natural type of air conditioning or ventilation. They used to dig a trench simply leading from their residence to about 100 to 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 pipe. The pipe, 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 outdoors.

The Modern Solar Power 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. provided an American customer with the first solar power air conditioning unit. It has worked remarkably well. Today, it is possible to cool down the heat created by the sun by means of battery-powered air conditioners such that the battery is charged by solar power. The solar modules charge the battery throughout the day, when the sun is high, while the solar power air conditioning unit can be made use of anytime.

Direct Cool Air Conditioning Inc. has developed its own energy effective 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 residences and cottages, industrial structures, telecommunication cabinets, and so on. A number of these air conditioners can be utilized to cool a bigger structure. Because the units operate on low voltage (24/48 DC) batteries, they are perfect for replacing pricey external generators. These cooling units are readily available as wall-mounted devices.

Advantages of DC Airco Solar Conditioners.

DC Airco Solar Conditioners consume less power and offer greater cooling. They can be made use of anywhere in the world because they are not frequency dependent. They do not require Genset for power supply, and do not need an inverter.More Info\nPhoenix Arizona Solar Power
