ACDC12 solar air conditioner

This is the 3rd generation solar air conditioner we've all been waiting for - designed for low cost, easy installation and a fast payback. This unique solar air conditioning technology requires no batteries, no inverter, no controller - just plug in the solar panels and start saving up to more than 80% on daytime cooling or heating costs.

During the day it runs primarily on solar power and only uses only small amounts of power from the utility company as needed. Hybrid operation eliminates the need for batteries and allows 24 hours per day use of the system. The system uses primarily uses solar power, and mixes it with normal AC power.

For home or office use, this system will cool an area for pennies with 80% or more of the energy coming from sunlight. In addition to cooling, the ACDC12 solar heat pump will provide solar powered heating, operating all the way down to an outside ambient temperature of 5F. No matter how far north or south you are, this is the right system for you.

ACDC12 solar air conditioners need no batteries, and only need two or three PV panels to deliver a huge savings. During the day, when air conditioning is needed the most, you can operate this unit with very little draw on your utility meter. At night, you continue to save due to the >SEER 19 rating on this unit. The mini-split air conditioner design allows you to put solar cooling into the area where it's needed the most and avoid the security issues of an unsightly and noisy window unit. If your location needs heat during the winter, take a full 1-ton of the daytime heating load off of your main heating system and get a head start on evening heating requirements.  And because it's a ductless system, it allows 100% of your heating or cooling to be delivered to where it's needed without the loss that occurs in a ducted system. Note - this is not an "off-grid" unit, 220v utility power is required. If you have no AC power and need an off-grid solar AC click here.

Solar Air Conditioning Cooling & Heating Augmentation
Augmenting a space heating or cooling system with solar makes perfect sense. In addition to heating or cooling a small area, it allows you to add capacity to an existing system, or reduce the load on an existing system, either or both of which can save you money and add comfort. Solar augmentation also allows offsetting of higher daytime electricity rates and reduces the amount of early evening catch-up required by the normal system. The ACDC12 hybrid solar air conditioner allows you to add comfort without adding cost, and can sharply cut your daytime heating and cooling bills.

How It Works

Installation

The ACDC12 installs just like a normal minisplit air conditioner, then you connect the solar panels using industry-standard MC4 connectors. You can use 1, 2 or 3 normal solar panels (but not 12v "battery charger" panels) for a total of up to 750w. You can order the panels, etc. from us or purchase them locally, note the panels should be minimum 30v PV panels (30-39v), please review the specifications. The ACDC12 uses R410a, an ozone-friendly refrigerant, so it is legal for the customer to self-install however we recommend hiring a professional HVAC installer. If self-installing you will need a vacuum pump to commission the unit.

Ordering, Pricing & Specifications

The Manufacturers List Price on the ACDC12 is $1695. Solar panels, etc., are not included. Qualified solar and HVAC professionals who purchase in quantity should contact us for dealer and distributor pricing. Private branding is available. These units are normally in stock.
