A solar collector super heats the refrigerant changing the thermodynamic process of the refrigerant and reduces the required work of the compression operation of the compressor.  This then lowers the required electrical consumption, reduces the running time of the entire system and maintains a more comfortable conditioned space.  By “Super Heating” the refrigerant with the aid of the Solar Collector, we are able to increase the temperature difference between the condenser coil and the ambient temperature.  By creating this difference, our system is able to utilize the entire coil face at the condenser which allows for a better heat exchange throughout the entire system.

 

With a greater heat exchange, the solar system is able to not only reduce the temperature in the conditioned space, but also maintain better humidity control, which makes the space more comfortable at a higher temperatures.  In addition, your air conditioning unit doesn’t run as long and cycles less.
