Cooling the house in the hot weather is a need for many homes. Your air conditioner being one great investment in the house also consumes energy and adds to the power bill of your home. Reducing the consumption and the heat it generates to the environment is a concern of many governments and house owners as well.
Many companies are not only in repairs, but also developing new technologies to fix this problem. So, which is the latest technology in air conditioners that are adding to their effectiveness?
Air con engineers have come up with such device that works only when it senses motion of people in the room. The system uses hanging rods which detect movement and this activates the air conditioner to work.
Once people leave the room it switches off automatically. This is very economical as energy is only used when you are present in the room, and if you don’t need it, switching it off is a handy option.
Commercial buildings are well taken care of by this technology. The ice powered AC system cooling mechanism cools water in a tank overnight. The formed ice water serves to cool the building for six hours of daytime after which the main air con system takes over.
This technology cuts down on the use of electricity by using fewer units of electricity for cooling the water than air conditioners could use it at the same time. The technology is yet to be fixed for home use.
Super reflective surface
This functions like solar water panels, but instead of absorbing heat into the fluid, it repels it so that the system can cool the room. Reflective Panels are integrated into the existing air conditioning system, which allows more heat to be released than it can be absorbed, even during sunny days.
Water or glycol flows in the conventional unit taking the normal refrigerant heat into it. It flows to the upper refractive panels and releases the heat into the air. The refractive panels repel solar energy and then helps to stop the heating of the incoming fluid as it loses heat and goes back into the system.
This new technology replaces the vents in the ceiling, door and walls of a home. It uses sensors that monitor the temperature, indoor air quality and air pressure of the home. It can be controlled from a smartphone through its vent application, which can read the specific temperature of each room.
The vent sensors trigger the main Air con to regulate the temperature of each room as per the need. They also trigger the conditioner to stop when the right temperature and air quality and pressure have been achieved.
Greater inventions are coming up every day. Some inventions of electricity generating air cons are being tried out for the market already, which help add to the house grid and reduce the bill. The future may also see 3D air conditioners able to pull out humidity from a specific area of the room.
