There’s an environmentally friendly air conditioner out there, and it gets hot before it cools you down.
When do you need your air conditioner most? Many would say when it’s hot and the sun is shining. So why not a solar-powered AC? This relatively new creation has popped up in places such as Australia and the U.A.E., but the first prototype arose out of China. Now, people in the U.S. can get them, and environmentalists and frugal individuals alike are on board.
These types of units have a lot of perks. The first is the lower cost. Electricity prices continue to stay relatively high, so a solar-powered unit as opposed to an electrically run unit saves on cash. Solar-powered air conditioners also use less energy to keep you cool, leaving less of a carbon footprint behind.
The big question, though, is whether or not these units are reliable. Solar powered units, which use “thermal chillers” to run and have fewer moving parts, are expected to last much longer than the average unit. Not only that, but even on the cloudiest of days, these units can be backed up using natural gas. There’s no need for any other external backup system to make sure your air keeps up on those hot summer days.
