Overall reduced energy usage and reduced operating costs, providing a ROI in less than two years
When switched on, a typical air conditioning unit will run continuously until the room thermostat senses the desired temperature and turns the system off. As the room warms up, the thermostat switches the air conditioner back on and the cycle repeats. It’s either fully ON or OFF. However, in most conditions, the maximum rated output is rarely required because the system is oversized by design, in other words Air-con units are designed and sized to cope with the worst case scenario. Therefore the compressor operates with excess capacity most of the time.
Once Air Conditioning Energy Sensor is installed by our distributor (about a 15min install time) it will use algorithms to detect when overcapacity occurs, and switch off the compressor avoiding inefficiency. In effect your Air-con unit goes into ‘saver mode’. Don’t worry because the fans will still continue to operate and blow cold air into the room, making use of all the stored cool energy in the heat exchange unit.
The set room temperature will be reached, but without the inefficient parts of the cooling cycle. This results in significant energy savings without compromising cooling comfort (the reason we have AC). Once the stored energy is used up, the compressor will switch back on again.
Installing our Air Conditioning Energy Sensor from Enigin makes sense in terms of overall reduced energy usage and reduced operating costs - typically providing a ROI in less than two years - it really does do what is says on the box!
