​ UV Thermal Collector Solar Panel

E.F. Martin Mechanical is now the leading HVAC company in the Columbia, SC area that is installing UV Thermal Solar Panels.

The UV Thermal Solar Panel, combined with your existing system combines a state-of-the-art high efficiency 2-stage air conditioning system integrated with creating the most energy-efficient Air Conditioning System available today! The key element is the integrated UV Solar Panel super heating the air conditioning system's refrigerant, which in turn reduces the required work load of the compressor. This then lowers the overall power consumption of the system, saving energy and money.

​How does it work?

​How does it work?

The answer is simple - it lies in their slogan "The Hotter It Gets, The Better It Works". When the sun is the hottest, and a conventional air conditioner is working it's hardest, Solar Cool, by harnessing the energy of the sun, is at its most efficient. During the heat of the Summer when conventional air conditioners are struggling to cool and burning at least 3-4amps per ton to do so, the solar collector on the Solar Cool system is providing the energy necessary for the compressor to remain in the stage one where it requires less than 2 amps and while providing cooler and drier air. Even in stage one, the energy which the solar panel is supplying reduces the energy that the compressor must supply. The sun providing energy to your air conditioner that you don't have to for, it's the wave of the future for energy efficiency! The system will operate as a conventional air conditioner under any conditions. With solar assist, the system will perform at an increased capacity, higher than any other air conditioning system available today.
