Redefining the meaning of high efficiency
Introducing the most efficient air conditioner on the planet the Emperor Series residential system
MINI VRF FOR RESIDENTIAL & LIGHT COMMERCIAL
NEXT GENERATION COMFORT SYSTEM
The Emperor Series heat pump with ThermX was designed for affordable comfort. Not only will it lower your energy costs, but requires no additional servicing beyond your industry standard maintenance. The reduced cost of cooling and heating your home will quickly offset your smart investment. Talk to a certified contractor today, and experience for yourself the benefits of owning a ThermX Emperor heat pump.
AVERAGE EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF AN EMPEROR
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio – measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency.
*The majority of systems installed prior to 2006 are 10 SEER or lower. Potential energy savings may vary depending on your personal lifestyle, system settings and usage, equipment maintenance, local climate, actual construction and installation of equipment and duct system.
SOLAR THERMAL TECHNOLOGY AND VARIABLE SPEED COMPRESSION TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
THE POWER OF DC INVERTER TECHNOLOGY
Inverter technology allows your system to use only as much as it needs. A variable speed system maintains consistent comfort levels, regardless of outdoor conditions, by using more energy when it is required and less energy when it is not. By fluctuating operating speeds rather than running at a constant level, our systems save energy by maximizing lower speed operation while maintaining consistent temperature inside your home. It’s “cruise control” for your home comfort system.
- Limits hard stops
- Limits peak starts
- Lower wear and tear
- Extended life expectancy
- Lower maintenance costs
- Better efficiency
- Lower energy costs
THE SOLAR THERMAL ADVANTAGE
ThermX inputs heat from the sun directly into the refrigerant that’s used to heat your home – reducing the compressor workload-and therefore minimizing or eliminating your demand for alternative fuels such as gas, oil, and electric heat. ThermX performs all year round. Shown above is a side-by-side test comparison of two inverter units, under exactly the same loads, with and without ThermX.
INTELLIGENT CONTROLS AND FLEXIBILITY
The Emperor Series heat pump instinctively adjusts the output capacity, allowing indoor temperature to remain at the desired setting without fluctuation. When in heating mode, the ThermX, wall mounted Solar Diverter controller (SDV) provides automatic panel by-pass, preventing refrigerant heat loss throughout periods of inadequate solar gain. Evaporating temperature control manages humidity in the indoor air, providing greater comfort and improving air quality.
The ThermX solar panel can be mounted onto a variety of roof surfaces, such as asphalt shingle, tile or metal. Ground mounting and pole mounting systems are also possible. As long as there is direct sunlight exposure available, ThermX is compatible with most single and two storey home designs.
Size Does Matter
Unlike many versions of higher-efficiency system available, the cabinet sizes are more accommodating to smaller spaces, like closets and attics. The Emperor air handler may very well fit, where other brands may not. See system specifications for further details. Just one, 6 by 6 ft. ThermX solar panel makes all the difference! Only taking up as much space as 2 photovoltaic panels, the energy saved can equal up to 20 panels or more!
NO BATTERIES, NO PV PANELS, NO GRID TIE MANAGEMENT
The Emperor Series heat pump uses Silent Technology to deliver sound levels as low as 56dB, up to 50% less noise than other standard home comfort systems. Advanced blade design provides vortex suppression to reduce the sound of airflow exiting the unit, maintaining low noise levels even in high speed operation. Insulated compressor compartments minimize operating noise with innovative, industry leading materials and sound isolating compressor mounts. The ThermX solar component keeps your system running at lower speeds longer, when compared to a traditional DC inverter system, making an already quiet system… stay quiet longer.
What is VRF ( Variable Refrigerant Flow) ?
A very sophisticated air conditioning system, based on several principles:
Refrigerant only – where refrigerant is the only coolant material in the system.
Inverter compressors that allow lowering power consumption with partial cooling/heating loads ideal for use with Thermx collector panels.
Several indoor units on the same refrigerant loop / circuit. Can be easily expanded which is applicable for larger projects, that can grow in stages.
Currently used widely in larger buildings especially in Japan and Europe, Solarcool Mauritius Ltd are now able to offer smaller versions of this system (Mini VRF) in Mauritius, coupled with our Thermx panel collector technology making our VRF’s the most efficient in the world. The VRF technology/system was developed and designed by Daikin, Japan who named and protected the term variable refrigerant volume (VRV) system so other manufacturers use the term VRF “variable refrigerant flow”. In both are the same. With a higher efficiency and increased control, the VRF system can help achieve a sustainable design.
