Why Cool-n-Save is a Genius Product
The typical Air Conditioning system consists of evaporator coils, a fan inside, a compressor, compressor coils, and a fan outside. The unit cools by using the refrigerant, usually Freon, to transport the heat from inside the space to the outside air. The heat is expelled into the outside air by the action of the fan pulling air over the coils and the heat contained in the refrigerant is transferred to the air.
When ultra-fine mist is released into the air, it evaporates almost instantly. This “flash evaporation” literally sucks heat out of the air, as the water absorbs the energy it needs to evaporate. This process, called “adiabatic saturation,” is a well-known scientific principal that has been used for years to lower air temperature in outdoor zones. The result of this constant, immediate evaporation is a substantial drop in ambient temperature. The air temperature near a misting system is automatically lowered by as much as 30 degrees.
Cool-n-Save is designed to work with central air conditioning units.
The efficiency of air conditioners has increased steadily since the energy crises of the 1970s. The 1987 National Appliance Energy Conservation Act authorized the Department of Energy to set minimum efficiency standards for space conditioning equipment and other appliances each year, based on what is “technologically feasible and economically justified.”
Despite technological improvements, many American lifestyle changes have put higher demands on cooling resources. The average size of homes built in the United States has increased significantly, from 1500 sqft in 1970 to 2300 sqft in 2005. The single-person household has become more common, as has central air conditioning: 23% of households had central air conditioning in 1978, that figure rose to 55% by 2001.
These energy demands are further compounded by large or over-sized air conditioning units often installed by contractors “in order to avoid complaints, accommodate future expansions, enable quicker cooling down of homes, and to allow for lower cooling set points by homeowner” can drastically increase your cooling costs.
Cool-n-Save is an inexpensive solution to an expensive problem.
The Cool-n-Save breakthrough can be summed up like this. Existing industrial AC misting units is that they are large, complex systems that need to be professionally installed. They rely on electrical solenoids and switches to send water to the misters only when the AC condenser is running. Most homeowners cannot afford to have such a costly commercial grade system installed for them. Once installed, for the average homeowner, they are complex to operate and difficult to maintain – requiring continued maintenance on electrical components.
Cool-n-Save is patented – the paddle and control valve, which easily installs to the top of virtually any AC condenser, is where this thing really makes its mark: no additional energy, minimal installation, and no delay in benefits. When the AC unit turns on, it triggers the valve open and filtered water flows to the misters. When the AC unit shuts off, the control valve immediately closes and no water is wasted. And you save money all around.
Reduce your air conditioning costs by up to 30%.
Cool-n-Save’s genius is in its simplicity. Cool-N-Save is designed to quickly install on virtually an AC condenser with no tools. No electricity is needed to power Cool-n-Save system, either; no complex connections or installations.
When applied to your AC condenser unit, Cool-n-Save creates a “Chill Zone” which keeps the air around your unit up to 30 degrees cooler than the surrounding air. Because of this, your AC unit can transfer heat much more efficiently, greatly increasing its EER (Energy Efficiency Rating.) The scientific principal of energy efficiency used for years by large corporations to save money, can be applied to almost any home AC system.
This increased energy efficiency saves you money in two ways. First, the lower temperatures in the AC compressor itself means it runs at a lower pressure, allowing it to work using less energy. Second, your AC unit will run for shorter periods since it will transfer heat much more efficiently. This results in your AC unit using much less electricity, lowering your summer cooling bills!
