Aussie firm is working on the next generation of air conditioning
Aussie-based Airconditioning System Group is building a fully-featured air conditioning system that will be capable of delivering an average of 5,000 square metres of cooling power to an area of one acre, it was announced.
The company, which has offices in Melbourne and Sydney, said the new air conditioning is being developed to meet growing demand in the urban centre.
“We are very excited about the opportunities and the opportunities we will have in terms of building new energy efficiency, energy savings and the ability to use the existing infrastructure in the future,” said Air Conditioning Systems Group managing director Chris Williams.
Mr Williams said the company was currently developing the systems to replace existing air conditioning systems, and would eventually move to more traditional air conditioning solutions.
Air Conditioning systems have long been a key part of homes, with large residential areas relying on air conditioning to keep their occupants comfortable.
In 2016, more than 100,000 people took part in a survey by the Australian Government to understand the state of the nation’s energy efficiency.
According to the survey, nearly one in four Australians aged between 16 and 24 were using a home air conditioner, while the rest of the population was either not using one or not using at all.
At the time, Air Conditioners Australia chief executive, Steve Anderson, said a significant proportion of those who had air conditioners were living in the outer metropolitan belt, and that the air conditioning industry had been growing steadily.
But with temperatures soaring and demand for air conditioning being increasing, the sector has been hit hard by a number of disasters, including the recent bushfires in Queensland and Victoria, which killed more than 2,500 people.
