An air-conditioning system is important to almost every household especially in areas with hot climate. This is the reason why households of today are the highest energy consumer. However, a group of people that include Mathew Holloway, William Penfold, Daniel Becerra, Karina & Matthew Judkins are now working on a project that will lower down our energy consumption by 10% as compared to the conventional air-conditioning system. The Artica is a natural cooling, ventilation, and heat recovery system tha is currently in prototype and is already set-up for future commercialization. It also has a ratio of thermal to electrical energy rating or COP of 32. With the use of this eco-product, carbon emission is reduced by 90 percent, which is a very positive response to the environment.
The eco-friendly feature of the Artica does not ends there. Aside from the eco features mentioned above, the Artica is also made from re-used materials from other industries that are supposed to be destined in landfills, which is obviously a great contributor of green house gases.
The Artica is not only eco-friendly, it also has a stylish design and its commercialization is supported by Design London (a collaboration between Imperial College and The Royal College of Art) and is funded through NESTA.
