HotSpot Energy - ACDC18C, Solar Air Conditioner/ Heater (18000 BTU)


*This unit will work with or without solar. It will run at high efficiency & rated capacity either way. This unit includes: indoor unit, outdoor unit, 3M lineset, and wireless remote control.*

Connect 4 Or More Panels (>/= Total 1200W) Runs On Solar Power Only or Solar & AC Power 18,000 BTU Cooling & Heating
Plug-And-Play Solar Connection
No Batteries or Grid/AC Required

Keep the inside cool all day for next to nothing
in energy costs. Preventing daytime heat build-up also cuts evening cooling costs. Cool or heat up to 1000 Sq. Ft. (92m2).

Compatible with all types of solar panels & 50Hz and 60Hz power, use it anywhere in the world.

Your air conditioner needs the most power when the sun is shining, a coincidence you can take advantage of with our ACDC18C 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 4-5 (up to 8) solar panels (290-375w per panel) 72-cell panels in series. 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 22 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-for energy, the ACDC18C produces an equivalent SEER above SEER 75.

o batteries needed. Like all DC-Inverter air conditioners, the ACDC18C 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 ACDC18C can get all or most of its power from 4-5 >/= 300W solar panels. The unit can be connected with up to 8 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
