Solar Thermal Hybrid Air Conditioners Bayat Energy currently offer 4 different styles of Hybrid Solar Air Conditioners: Wall-Mounted – Floor Standing – Floor- Ceiling – Cassette. Each of them have several types with different capacities to suit different rooms. One of the most important features of the Hybrid Solar Air Conditioner is that it is ENERGY SAVING! which can save at least 30% on electricity costs.
The Solar Air Conditioning unit works on a hybrid principle. It absorbs solar energy to heat the inside medium by utilizing a vacuum solar collector. The refrigerant from the compressor goes through a copper coil inside the collector and undertakes a heat exchange. The heated refrigerant then goes through a cycle inside the system for not only for heating but also for cooling too. Energy from the sun is fully utilized so therefore less power is required from the mains in this process, this in turn allows for smaller compressors to be installed that offer even better savings on power consumption. This system adopts a four-fold type heat exchanger as one of the core components of this air-conditioner. Its heat effective area is increased by 20-30% versus the usual V-type and flat plat heat exchanger, which greatly increases cooling efficiency. Source: http://www.bayatenergy.co.uk/index.htm
