Reduce your air-con bill with AIRCO

AIRCO - air conditioning energy saverIf you use air-conditioning you could be wasting up to 30% of all the energy it consumes!

Electricity costs in Barbados are no joke! Barbados Light & Power’s fuel costs seem to increase on a monthly basis and in-turn so do our electricity bills. This trend seems set to continue for some time, so that’s why Barbados Property List has partnered with AIRCO to offer a solution to the ever-increasing electricity bill. If you have 1 of more air-con units in your home/ office you can start saving $$$ today! Here are some of the top-line benefits of the Airco technology:

  • Energy savings of up to 30%
  • Payback in less than 24 Months
  • Retrofit product to upgrade existing units
  • Quick & simple installation
  • Excellent alternative to an expensive new system
  • Anti-short cycling & power outage protection

When switched on, typical air conditioning systems operate 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. Air conditioning systems are usually dimensioned to cope with the extreme cooling demands. However, in most operational conditions, this maximum output is not required and the system is oversized. So running the system continuously until the room thermostat switches it off means that the system operates with excess capacity most of the time.

AIRCO - energy saving for air conditioning units

This is where an AIRCO cuts in. Its sensor-driven software algorithms are designed to detect thermodynamic saturation and to optimize the compressor accordingly. When overcapacity is detected, AIRCO switches the compressor off and avoids inefficient overcooling.

When AIRCO switches into “saver mode”, the fan keeps running and your system makes maximum use of the stored cooling energy in the heat exchanger. Once the stored energy is used up, the compressor can work efficiently again and is switched back on. The set room temperature is reached without the inefficient parts of the cooling cycle. This results in energy savings of up to 30% without compromising cooling comfort.
