EcoBreeze 2.1, The Natural Cooling Alternative To Air Conditioning
Game-Changing Air Conditioning Alternative That's Desperately Needed as We Come out of the Warmest Decade in History. Natural cooling has been around forever, but now it can be automatic, affordable and easy to install.
- Air conditioning is an energy hog that consumes 17% of residential electricity and costs US consumers 28 billion dollars every year. Plus it generates 100 million tons of CO2 every year.
- The refrigerant we use is really bad for the environment. Refrigerant R410A has a GWP of over 2000 (2000 times worse than carbon dioxide). There are no good alternatives.
- It’s really expensive to replace when it wears out -2,500 to 7,500 dollars
Using outside air (fresh air cooling) when it is cooler outside than inside is used in 90% of commercial buildings north of Miami.
Fresh Air Cooling has been too expensive and too complicated for residential buildings. Nature’s Cooling Solutions has shifted the solution from an entire building to a room solution by creating a “Smart Window Fan”. EcoBreeze 2.1 turns your regular window into a smart, cooling window allowing you to reduce or eliminate air conditioning. The EcoBreeze 2.1 fan will automatically bring air inside when it’s cooler and less humid outside. How does it work? Effortlessly! EcoBreeze 2.1 continuously senses indoor and outdoor conditions with its built-in humidity and temperature sensors. EcoBreeze 2.1 turns on when outside air is cooler and dryer than inside air then shuts off when it reaches your temperature set point or outside air can no longer cool. The variable speed fan automatically switches to the lowest speed that will satisfy cooling needs. Typically during the summer, cooler outside temperatures occur in the middle of the night while you are sleeping. But, who wants to hassle with waking up at 1 am to install a window fan to bring in that cool air? The EcoBreeze 2.1 window fan will turn on and off automatically for you! Bringing in cool outside air with the EcoBreeze 2.1 uses 97% less energy than turning on your air conditioner. EcoBreeze 2.1 is a perfect complement to an air conditioner. EcoBreeze 2.1 provides cooling during periods of low outdoor temperature and low humidity. Leave your air conditioner on and the AC will automatically take over during hot and humid weather. EcoBreeze 2.1 will lower utility bills and improve air quality. Mother Nature provides the cool, fresh air we provide the technology.
SMART COOLING AND THE MORNING COOL DOWN
Use cool evening temperatures to provide a morning cool down. Reduce the need for AC during the day. EcoBreeze 2.1 continually measures inside and outside temperature and humidity, compares them and when appropriate turns on EcoBreeze 2.1 to bringing the cooler outside air. Set your EcoBreeze 2.1 temperature below your air conditioning (AC) temperature and the controls automatically cool when the outdoor temperature drops, and cooling is needed. When using both outdoor air and AC choose to lock out humid air. EcoBreeze 2.1 tracks your cumulative fresh air cooling hours. It’s a great way to evaluate it’s benefit in your climate zone.
CLEANS THE INCOMING AIR
Outside air is 2 to 5 times less polluted than inside air – but it can be filled with dust and pollen, EcoBreeze 2.1 has a convenient pull out filter that traps pollutants. It comes standard with a MERV 8 filter that removes pollen, dust mites and mold spore.
The high efficiency optional MERV 13 eliminates viruses, bacteria, smog and smoke. Available on Amazon.
WORKS WHEN THE AC IS ON
When it is cooler outside and indoor temperature is above your set point the Smart Fan automatically brings in cool outside air to lower the room temperature. When the outdoor air is too hot or humid EcoBreeze 2.1 seals up to keep the hot and humid air outside. As the indoor temperature rises the AC will turn on and cool the room down to its temperature setting. Increase the difference between set points to increase the savings.
EcoBreeze 2.1 is designed to maximize your cooling while minimizing your electricity use. The fan is programmed to run on the minimum speed to meet the cooling need based on the temperature set point and outdoor temperature. In a typical night it starts on low speed, gradually increases the speed as the temperature drops and then gradually decreases the speed as it nears the set point. This maximizes energy savings and maximizes running on low quiet speeds.
EASY TO INSTALL
Installs in minutes all you need is a screwdriver and sissors. Included weather strips and insulated side panels seal EcoBreeze 2.1 in your window. Intake and exhaust damper doors makes sure the hot outdoor air stays outside. Installation insulation exceeds Energy Star requirement Room Air Conditioners Specification Version 4.0. For windows wider 36 inches extenders are available on Amazon.
Fresh air cooling is 97% lower cost than AC. An energy efficient dc motor uses 7 watts of power on low and averages under 20 watts in the auto cooling mode, 70% less energy than traditional window fans. EcoBreeze 2.1 uses 97% less energy than an AC unit, drastically reducing cooing cost. With EcoBreeze 2.1 installed for the cooling season it will cool every time the outdoor temperature drops. Savings total varies by climate zone, how you operate the unit and the electricity rate The average savings for a 250 sq room is about 50 dollaars per year or almost a 20% return on your investment.
GREAT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
While our planet is warming, using and producing air conditioning equipment exacerbates climate change. The HFC refrigerants we use have a global warming impact(GWP) of 2000 times more than carbon dioxide. The energy used to run ac comes from power plants, including coal fire plants that also contribute to global warming. One of the less known issues is that the heat produced to cool our homes is exhausted into the outside air, which adds to the temperature rise in our cities. While AC is needed for hot humid days, substituting natural sustainable cooling whenever it is available is an action, we can all take to help reduce global warming.
