High energy savings, reduced maintenance, simple installation
Our system could save your business up to 35% on its air-con costs, with a 1-2 year payback period and knock-on benefits to noise control. By ensuring certain parts of your air-con only work when they're needed, we can extend your product's life-cycle and reduce maintenance costs. ACES is compact, safe and simple to install and, once it's in, you won't need to touch it again. Very much a plug-and-play solution.
The Problem With Air Conditioning
Air-conditioning systems are designed to provide force-cooled air into a room, thereby lowering and maintaining the temperature. The problem is that they don’t do this intelligently.
Such systems are generally switched off via a thermostat or simple programmer. The compressor and fan within the air-con simply run until the thermostat or target temperature is satisfied. But did that energy-intensive compressor need to be running the whole time?
Compressors are often over-sized for their application and, what’s more, an effect called ‘thermodynamic saturation‘ means they often run way past the point at which they provide any benefit.
The ACES Solution
ACES directly addresses the problem of thermodynamic saturation (TS). Through advanced temperature sensing and control algorithms, the ACES unit detects the exact point at which TS is reached and switches the compressor off.
It doesn’t touch the fan though, which continues to run – maximizing the effect of latent cooling left in the compressor’s coils. The fan draws a negligible amount of energy, so this barely impacts the device’s energy profile.
When the compressor is needed again, ACES commands the air-con to pop it on again. The result is that your energy-hungry compressor only works when it’s needed. Your air-con performance stays the same, but your energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 35%.
