As people become increasingly concerned about the planet and environment, sustainable, green solutions are becoming very popular. The significant growth in the use of air conditioning in Australia has caused many to begin considering the idea of eco-friendly or sustainable air conditioning solutions. We at Endeavour Air Conditioning get many enquiries from clients that are interested in these systems. Here is some information about them.
Some Sustainable Air Conditioning Options
There are many different eco-friendly HVAC options, such as:
- Solar-powered air conditioning systems
- Geothermal heat pumps
- Ice battery power
Solar-powered AC units and geothermal heat pumps use natural alternatives to systems that are artificially-powered. The latter circulates naturally cooled air from underneath the earth’s surface and solar-powered systems utilise the sun’s power which also reduces the cost of running the air conditioning.
Ice battery power units are a little different. They make ice in the night-time, which is when the air is much colder. The ice then helps to reduce the total amount of power required to cool buildings. This form of sustainable air conditioning is currently in the experimental stages. But it can save property owners a significant amount of money once the technology is fully developed and the systems are launched in the market.
The Importance Of Environmental Sustainability Air Conditioning
There are many distinct benefits to opting for sustainable air conditioning systems, such as:
- Reduction in Energy Bills- These systems need less power to operate their pumping system and to cool the air. They conserve energy and cool air to be used later. Most people in Australia are habituated to using air-conditioning and being able to save money on these bills becomes an appealing option.
- Reduction in Harmful Emissions- When you use less energy, you are also reducing the total amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere by power plants in the local area. Air conditioning units also have their own emissions and sustainable solutions either eliminate or reduce those emissions entirely.
- Increased Lifespan- Geothermal heat pumps last much longer than window units or conventional central air systems. According to rough estimates, geothermal heat pumps can easily last for up to 30 years because they don’t have moving parts.
Some AC manufacturers offer 50-year warranties on specific geothermal heat pump system components. All parts of the geothermal heat pump system is installed indoors, which protects them from the elements, extending its life.
These systems also have a quieter operation and are an excellent long term investment. For any more information about most sustainable air conditioning, feel free to call Endeavour Air Conditioning at (02) 9199 0372 or send us your queries through this Contact Us form, and we will respond shortly.
