Arctic GatorTM is a Breakthrough in Commercial AC Technology
The revolutionary, patent-pending Arctic GatorTM Chilled-Water Air Conditioning Conversion System from Demandside Energy Solutions transforms your building’s conventional air-to-air AC system into an advanced chilled water system that:
- Reduces expensive peak demand power consumption – without sacrificing comfort
- Costs 15% to 25% less than conventional replacement systems
- Reduces electric bill by up to 35%
- Reduces chlorofluorocarbon use by 50%
- Offers twice the operating life of a conventional system
- Heats your building as efficiently as it cools it
- Can be installed without disrupting your normal operations and comfort
- Comes with a three-year end-to-end warranty, with additional extended warranties available
Capturing the benefits of advanced chilled-water AC technology.
Chilled water air conditioning systems are used to cool large facilities ranging from hospitals, to sports areas, to office towers. While complex, these systems are more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly than air-to-air systems; however, chillers have never been practical for smaller buildings – until now. After nearly 20 years of development, the advantages of chilled-water air conditioning are now available for buildings ranging from 2,500 to 100,000 square feet in size – with the patent-pending Arctic GatorTM system from Demandside Energy Solutions. The Arctic GatorTM system achieves its goals at a lower cost and requires less maintenance than a conventional air-to-air system.
Arctic GatorTM is designed to solve the four main problems that make your AC system costly, inefficient and potentially unsafe
Chances are, your commercial AC system accounts for a significant portion of your business operating costs, and any savings you could find here would go straight to your bottom line! With Arctic GatorTM, you can now have those savings, as well as the comfort level your business requires—without the crippling investment of a new conventional system, or expensive and never-ending repairs or additions to your current system.
Arctic GatorTM accomplishes this by addressing the four primary shortcomings your conventional AC system:
Your existing system is a peak demand hog
Your electricity costs are insanely high because your inefficient AC system is driving up your peak demand power consumption, and your power company charges you a premium price for peak Kilowatt demand (kWd). The compressors in your current AC system constantly turn on and off to maintain the temperatures of your building. These compressors are also fitted with heat strips that turn on and off in cold weather to prevent freezing. These and other outmoded functions of your system cause dramatic spikes in your electricity use at the worst possible times—maximizing your consumption of power at extremely expensive peak-power rates. Arctic GatorTM is specifically engineered to dramatically reduce demand power consumption, which in turn will greatly reduce the users electric bill.
Your system requires too much service and maintenance
Your system requires constant filter changes. A conventional system also works under high pressures that put stress on seals, gaskets and connectors, and accelerates wear and tear on compressors and other internal components. This translates into high service and repair costs. In most installations, the Arctic GatorTM system reduces the total number of components that are subject to malfunction or failure. Arctic GatorTM functions at much lower pressures, as a result: it reduces component failure, lessens maintenance costs, and extends the operating life of your system.
Technology and regulations drive up the costs of upgrading or replacing your system
The efficiency of modern air-to-air air conditioning systems is being outpaced by the rising costs of new technology. That, along with increased regulations pertaining to refrigerants compounds the expense of buying new units to supplement an ageing system. With the Arctic GatorTM, you don’t have to invest in a costly replacement system. The Arctic GatorTM team will install one or more Arctic GatorTM conversion units, and integrate it with components of your existing system that have been reconditioned and upgraded to meet our performance specifications. The result is a new chilled water system that is far more efficient, longer lasting, and much less expensive than conventional air-to-air systems.
Your system poses potential health and environmental risks
Refrigerant is perfectly safe within a system, but the safe cannot be said for refrigerant in the environment. In the past, Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were used in virtually all spray can products, used widely as a refrigerant, and even to produce foam insulation. Unfortunately, these CFCs, and even their successor Hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs) depletes ozone once they inevitably reach the stratosphere. This is problematic for all aspects of life down on the surface. Life down here isn’t designed to be bombarded by ultraviolet light daily: the ozone layer plays a crucial role in keeping the Earth as we know it today.
Arctic GatorTM can remove half the amount of refrigerant systems require, and the lower operating pressures used in the Arctic GatorTM reduce the potential for leaks in a system.
