Summer is the peak season for using air conditioners. While people enjoy the coolness and comfort, they are also worried about the continuous increase of electricity bills. In order to better control the growth of electricity costs, people enjoy the coolness of air conditioner without any pressure, so now more and more people choose to use solar air conditioners. Solar air conditioners are classified into hybrid solar air conditioners and 100% solar air conditioners. Many people are still unclear when purchasing solar air conditioners, and it is easy to confuse these two types solar air conditioners. Below we will discuss how to distinguish between hybrid solar air conditioners and 100% solar air conditioners.
一、From the composition of solar air conditioner
1, hybrid air conditioner is divided into photothermal hybrid and photoelectric hybrid, this article takes the photothermal hybrid as an example. The photothermal hybrid solar air conditioner mainly consists of three parts: internal machine, external machine and the collector on the external machine.
2, 100% solar air conditioner is mainly composed of internal machine, external machine, solar panel, solar controller and battery.
二、From the working principle of solar air conditioner
1, hybrid air conditioners use high-efficiency solar collectors to convert light energy into heat and store the heat in the insulated water tank. When the air conditioner is running, the power consumption can be reduced.
2，in a 100% solar air conditioner system, solar panels convert light energy into electrical energy and provide DC voltage for operation of the air conditioner system. When the air conditioner is used under light conditions, the power generated by the solar panel will be directly supplied to the air conditioner, and the excess power will be stored in the battery; if the air conditioner is not used under the light condition, the power generated by the solar panel will be stored in the battery and supplied. The air conditioner is used when there is no light.
三、From the characteristics of solar air conditioner
1, the hybrid air conditioner must be connected to the municipal power supply before the air conditioner can operate, which is the same as the ordinary air conditioner. The reason why energy saving is mainly because it converts light energy into heat energy through a collector on the external machine, thereby reducing power consumption. Many people here mix hybrid solar air conditioners with 100% solar air conditioners. In fact, you only need to remember that hybrid solar air conditioners are a power based air conditioner that must be connected to a power source to work. Energy saving mainly lies in the collector on the external machine.
2, 100% solar air conditioner is an independent off-grid solar system, which is the solar panel in the system to generate electricity for air conditioner operation, and does not require grid power. Here you can know that 100% solar air conditioners can work independently without connecting to municipal power supply.
四、From the advantages of solar air conditioner
1, hybrid air conditioner is mainly energy-saving through the collector on the external machine, energy-saving EER> 3.72. Although it can only be used in areas with municipal power supply, solar air conditioners can save 30%-50% compared with ordinary air conditioners. For the average family, the cost of 100% solar power is too high, so you can choose hybrid solar air conditioners. Not only is the price right, but it also reduces the household's electricity spending to some extent.
2，100% solar air conditioner is an independent off-grid solar system, using its own solar panels to convert light energy into electrical energy for independent operation of air conditioning equipment. It is suitable for areas without power supply or where the power supply is often interrupted. It can be used even in suburbs, pastures and mountainous areas far from urban areas.
Through the above analysis, we understand that no matter which solar air conditioner, there is no good and bad, each has its own advantages. If you have a municipal power supply in your area, you can choose between hybrid solar air conditioner and 100% solar air conditioner. This is mainly due to your preferences and needs. If there is no electricity supply in your area, then you can only choose 100% solar air conditioner. Although the cost is higher, it will allow you to enjoy the cool summer and the warmth of winter in the days when there is no electricity supply. Why not enjoy doing it?
