New system can lower your energy bill

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: EnergyExteriorRoofing

Pacific Islands Solar introduces a new product to Hawaii called Fire & Ice. Fire & Ice produces hot water by using the heat generated by your air conditioner (A/C), and also uses one solar panel on your roof to produce all of your hot water needs. What is exciting about the product is that the technology reduces the electrical load on the A/C system by removing the heat from the refrigerant, giving electrical savings for both hot water and A/C electrical consumption.

Fire & Ice utilizes proven technology of heat transfer systems for both solar thermal technology and heat recovery unit technology (HRU). Also exciting is the cost, which is about the same as a traditional solar hot water system, allowing anyone who has a need for both to benefit from this technology. The system also qualifies for the same tax credits as other solar thermal hot water systems.

Up to 50 percent of your energy bill can be saved by the Fire & Ice system. Many people wish to use their A/C systems more, but the high cost of energy prevents this because these systems are energy hogs. Lowering your energy consumption by making your A/C system more efficient allows for greater usage.

Savings are proportionate to your hot water and air conditioning usage. Anyone who finds themselves using their A/C more will appreciate the energy savings from the Fire & Ice system, plus the benefit of additional hot water production.

If you already have solar hot water, you can still take advantage of the technology with a scaled down version. You can also just make hot water from your A/C system to provide the benefits discussed.

About Fire & Ice Solar Thermal

The Fire & Ice system utilizes not only the unlimited energy of the sun, but also heat recovery technology from mechanical equipment such as air conditioners and heat pumps. The patent pending technology provides multiple benefits including hot water production during daytime and evening hours, as well as a significant increase in mechanical equipment efficiency. Overall, Fire & Ice touts one of the best returns on investment in the renewable energy arena. The savings from hot water production and increased mechanical performance are virtually unmatched, and can provide significant energy savings for homeowners.

The system is retrofitable to existing equipment, so your A/C, hot water tank and traditional solar hot water systems do not have to be replaced. An additional benefit is the ability to upgrade a traditional solar hot water system with the latest technology. Three energy systems technologies are created from one. Fire & Ice creates hot water from the sun, makes hot water from the mechanical equipment (A/C) and improves the efficiency of the mechanical equipment. The system reduces the load on the compressor, thus consuming less electricity.
