A promising possibility for energy reduction is the use of solar thermal energy in solar-assisted air conditioning systems.

The main advantage of this technology is that cooling loads and solar gains occur at the same time, at least on a seasonal level.

4 Solar Heating and Cooling for Residential Applications | Technology Brief houses (Faninger, ). Considering that about 55% of energy consump-tion in the buildings sector is for space and water heating (IRENA, a), STS have a large market potential.

Globally, however, only % of heating. Solar cooling systems can be a cost-effective and environmentally attractive air-conditioning solution.

The design of such systems, however, is complex. Research carried out under the aegis of the International Energy Agencys Solar Heating and Cooling Program has shown that there is a range of seemingly subtle design decisions that can impact significantly on the performance of solar cooling.Solar thermal technology isn’t new under the sun.

For centuries, it’s been utilized for heating water. But the integration of solar thermal into the HVAC refrigeration cycle is new – and it offers significant energy savings. The introduction of variable load HVAC/R systems (VRF, inverter, staged, screw, digital scroll, etc.) has made the integration possible.Now Dan Chiras, author of the popular book The Natural House, brings those principles up to date for a new generation of solar enthusiasts.
