Do you have a time of use electric rate? Does your cooling demand drop off at night? Then, you are probably paying way too much for electricity! Air conditioning is the biggest energy cost in most commercial and residential buildings. Our ice bears save a “ton” of money.
Ice bears simply plug into existing or new a/c units. They make ice at night in their built-in ice tank. Then, during the heat of the day, melting ice water provides the cooling to the a/c unit so the big “energy hog” compressor can take a break. As a result, the a/c compressor stops constantly cycling on and off during the heat of the day. The a/c units last longer. Cooling is more consistent and moderate vs cycling and dumping cold air on occupants. It’s quieter for occupants. Since most buildings peak power demand (kW) is from air conditioning, utility demand charges are cut typically 30% – 50% by installing our ice bears. Likewise, a/c loads are shifted to night when it’s cooler outside and rates are cheaper. As a result, energy (kWh) costs go way down too. It’s not uncommon for overall building utility costs to drop by over 30% with hybrid a/c upgrades by 3fficient.
Smaller systems are light enough to put right on the roof and modular so they plug right into package (unitary) a/c units that are so common. Larger systems are custom designed to any size. 3fficient will even do all the utility bill analysis and incentive paperwork for you. Tired of HVAC maintenance hassles?
