Geothermal HVAC systems are probably the most efficient heating and cooling systems readily available on the market today. Geothermal works better than a regular air conditioner because it transfers the waste heat from indoors to the cool underground soil, rather than the ambient air. This results in an air conditioner that's about twice as efficient as a regular air conditioner.
Solar powered air conditioners are like regular air conditioners but integrated into a solar energy collection and storage system. This means solar cells and electricity saved in storage batteries meet much of the air conditioner's energy requirements. Depending on the weather and sun conditions, the air conditioner will use little electricity from the grid. This has the potential to provide an almost totally green air conditioning option for your business.
One of the biggest energy hogs in an air conditioner is the compressor. The compressor allows the refrigerant to return to its cooled state. This process uses a tremendous amount of electricity. An air conditioner with a two-stage compressor allows the air conditioner to run in two stages: one stage for when it doesn't have to work as hard on warm days and another stage for extra hot days when the air conditioner has to run at full blast.
