Can portable, personal cooling devices keep you cool in summer? And what are the potential energy/carbon benefits? I tested two quite different personal air conditioners.
Alinta launches "Australia first" geothermal heating and cooling technology – focused on new suburbs and the displacement of energy intensive reverse-cycle air-conditioning.
New research shows fluid-filled roof panels that work like solar water heaters – except to extract heat from fluid, rather than adding it – can help make air conditioning up to 20% more efficient.
Solar hot water company Apricus inks distribution deal for US "ice battery" + air-con technology that could cool Australian homes, and cut power bills.
Air conditioners drive up electricity demand, straining the electricity network. So what do you do if you want to enjoy a guilt-free, full night’s sleep?
