35 Years of Air Conditioning

How much does your old air conditioning system really cost you?

New technology air conditioning units are more energy efficient

We all remember the bulky, noisy and heavy on power consumption air conditioners we had 15 – 20 years ago. But “what happened, what changed now days?” – Everybody is asking. Due to new modern technology, that is a thing of the past. Technology changed so much since then, the air conditioners did too! They become smarter, more efficient and quieter too.

Old style air conditioning units used a heat transfer agent called Freon–gas that changes its state from gas to liquid and flows through the pipes between the two parts of the air conditioner: the condenser (outdoor) and evaporator (indoor). The electrical motors that these units had inside them years ago (compressors, fan motors), were calculated by hand by engineers and designers. These calculations were done by graphs, charts and long formulas.

They were good at the time but not up to today’s standards!

Within all industries modern technology is taking over for the better. New designs and innovations are adapting with ever growing demands and ever increasing energy bills.
In business and daily life this can increase the feeling of financial pressure but achieving savings is possible, especially when it comes down to your air conditioning. The key is to assess the facts. What will my old air conditioning system cost me in energy, repairs and maintenance over the next 5 years compared to a new, more efficient system offering energy savings? With the aid of computer optimised calculations, highly efficient DC (direct current) fan motors, scroll compressors and new refrigerants, have improved the running costs of current systems by over 30 per cent. These new materials and manufacturing processes are key factors that have dramatically changed the air conditioning industry.

The result of this is low power consumption and noise levels, lighter units and components, compact size, more stable and intuitive technology plus they contain more efficient and nonozone depleting gases R410a and R32 that will assist in the reduction of greenhouse gases. This has been achieved without sacrificing the cooling and heating power of the modern day air conditioner.
