Solar Reverse Cycle Heat Pumps
Solar powered reverse cycle heat pumps (or air-conditioning units) are a new technology that is 55% more energy efficient than non-solar heat pumps.
After years of research, hybrid solar systems are now available at an affordable price and can save the average household $600/year in energy bills
With reasonable set up costs, solar air conditioning is now a viable option for all Australian families.
Our Solar air conditioning systems are hybrid units which use the heat of the sun to reduce the energy needed to drive the cooling or heating process of an conditioning system. This in turn, reduces the energy needed to run the compressor.
The only difference you'll see on your house is the Thermal Collector which looks a bit like a solar panel.
The Thermal Collector super heats and pressurises the gases working in place of the compressor at every opportunity, so electrically powered compression is only needed for 2 minutes out of 10, compared to a conventional system where it runs on average 8 minutes out of 10.
Basically, the compressor won't need to operate as often. Simple, but extremely effective!
When you buy a solar air conditioning system from Southern Green Energy, it will be installed by experts.
Our installation team have been carefully selected, all members have at least 5 years experience in the installation of ducted and split air conditioner systems. Also every installer has attended an additional 4 day training course on the installation of solar air conditioning.
