HotSpot Energy - ACDC24C, Solar Air Conditioner/ Heater (24,000 BTU)


No batteries needed. Like all DC-Inverter air conditioners, the ACDC24C compressor runs on DC power, which may at times be converted from AC power. This special solar air conditioner can accept DC power directly from solar panels, without needing an inverter, charge controller, or batteries. The solar DC power directly replaces AC power from the power company and can cut daytime energy costs for air conditioning or heating by up to 100%. No power is exported and no net metering agreement or special meter is needed. Can be used with all-DC, all-AC, or AC-DC whereby the unit can seamlessly blend both power sources with a bias towards using all available DC (solar) power first.

During the day, the ACDC24C can get all or most of its power from 4-6 >/= 450W solar panels. The unit can be connected with up to 6 panels for running on 100% solar power with no AC connection or when the sun is not at full strength. The system is designed for hybrid operation with solar providing most or all of the energy needed during daylight hours, supplemented by AC power at night or during times of cloud cover. This air conditioner may be connected to a 208- 240VAC 50/60Hz power source as desired for night time or cloudy day operation. Ratings per AHRI 210/240.

Ultra-HighSEER SolarAirConditioner 

Simple To Install

This unit installs exactly like a normal mini-split air conditioner. Standard MC4 cabling are used to connect the solar panels directly to the ACDC24C outdoor unit.

Your air conditioner needs the most power when the sun is shining, a coincidence you can take advantage of with our ACDC24C solar air conditioner. It can keep an indoor area cool during the day for free, or for just pennies, at times when solar power is not sufficient to carry 100% of the load. Use this system to cool a small area or to augment a larger system.

Connect up to six 72/144-cell panels in series, suggested panels >/= 450w. Many other panel configurations are possible, contact us to discuss. The unit can also connect to 220v (208v-240v) AC power for extra power during overcast conditions, transient clouds, or at night. No need for batteries. Even when the sun is not shining at all, with an AC connection this ultra high-efficiency (SEER 20 without solar) heat pump will keep you comfortable and save you money using far less electricity than a normal AC or heat pump unit of the same capacity. Calculated using only paid energy in hybrid AC-DC operation, the ACDC24C can produce an equivalent SEER above SEER 60. Max string voltage 325 VOC rating, max actual string voltage 370v DC. For ACDC24C we suggest PV >/= 450w per panel. Actual string under load voltage must be >125v DC to operate on.
