LOOK AGAIN!! This is a Solar Thermal Hybrid DC INVERTER Air Conditioner/Heat Pump. Hybrid Solar DC INVERTER Air Conditioner Solar Split products are a nuance in the next generation of economically oriented A/C equipment!! These are far less expensive than 100% solar powered air conditioners and far easier to install. This device runs on 220~240V 50/60Hz and is UL certified!!

If you are serious about being green, this type of air conditioner should be squarely in your sights. You could conservatively cool or heat 247 square feet (more like 630 square feet) with this one unit.

Solar Thermal Hybrid INVERTER Mini Split Air Conditioners are split systems that are solar assisted with an INVERTER design and take the improvements of both of those previous designs to the next level. By capturing thermal (ambient) energy, the amount of work the condenser does is reduced under full load and significantly extends the time the compressor is cycled off. The solar collector absorbs thermal solar energy by using copper heat conducting inner coils. This allows the unit to use the stored energy in the solar collector to continue the refrigeration cycle while the compressor is off, utilizing a larger stored amount of refrigerant liquid in the condenser. The collector, compressor and the condenser have been designed to work in tandem to allow the compressor to operate more efficiently. The compressor when operating more efficiently consumes less electricity, resulting in reduced running costs. Further, this is an INVERTER design. This unit does not run full blast until the desired temperature is reached. Instead, the unit actually speeds up to achieve the desired temperature and slows down to maintain it. This design renders an even bigger savings.

The TKFR-35GW/BP-P has an EER above 21 and an estimated SEER much higher!!

TKFR 35GWSolar DC Inverter 12000 550W 21.82 24.94

The performance numbers demonstrate AMAZING savings over conventional mini splits and much higher when compared to a window unit!

Solar Thermal Hybrid Ductless Air Conditioning Systems can be installed in virtually any location. These systems provide high efficiency cooling during the hot summer months, and are far more economical when compared to conventional central air conditioning systems. Solar Assisted Hybrid Ductless Air Conditioners are also known as Zone Systems, cooling the zone or area in which they are installed. The system can be turned on or off based on when the zone is in use. This capability allows for substantial energy savings.

The three boxes you will receive contain nearly everything you need to set this unit up:

. One Outdoor Unit (Condenser) with a Three Meter Line Set (Roughly 10 Feet)

. One Indoor Unit (Evaporator/Fan Coil) with an Indoor Line Cord and 220V Plug

. One Solar Thermal Panel with a One Meter Line Set

. One Remote Control


You will find you can do major parts of the installation yourself. There are good tutorials available on the internet. It is suggested that you coordinate this work with a licensed HVAC contractor prior to installation. Installation must be completed by a licensed HVAC technician to ensure any issues encountered in the future are not due to improper installation/workmanship. Even though this installation is below the expertise requirements of central AC systems, these are not "plug-n-play" units that can be properly installed without certain tools and prior HVAC and electrical knowledge.

Does it run off the sun? It uses the sun to heat the solar thermal panel to then transfer that heat to the refrigerant which then makes the unit use less electricity from the grid.

You will find this very same unit for much more money at other places. This is your opportunity to be green for a fraction of the cost.
