Solar-thermal assisted air-conditioning system coming soon

Posted: Updated:

Local company Green Energy Solutions announced it is now the exclusive dealer for a relatively new technology called "Therm-X."

It's a solar-thermal assisted air-conditioning system that company CEO Lynn Scott says it will save businesses lots of money. He says HVAC consumption accounts for the biggest energy cost for most companies. He explains how their system works.


"It reduces the power that you are already consuming. We send the refrigerant through the collector, we superheat it, instead of compressing the refrigerant gas, which allows the compressor that's already in your system to work a lot less harder," he said.

The company installed equipment at the Ada's Plaza building in Hagatna, and he says their study results showed substantial reductions, he said.

"On these two examples, on that building we had a 43 percent savings even though running it 60 percent longer, and we had a 70 percent savings running it at equal time," he said. 

Scott said the system is also clean, quiet and low maintenance. It's not yet available though for residential use, but they hope to offer that later this year.
