Efficiency is 30-40% higher than standard Inventor air conditioners. For SAC, all parts are plastic except for the electric motor and wires.



The SA-conditioner  cools and heats by separaiting air without using heaters or cooling radiators. The materials for the production are fewer times, so the new type of SA-conditioner is few times cheaper than old one.

Prototipe is working on 12V DC.

Is this proposal for a practice or a project?


What actions do you propose?

Lower cost of production and lower energy consumption are the benefits of the new kind of SA-conditioner .

Thanks to them, it is possible to save a lot of energy.
Also, the low value of the product allows for favorable SA-conditioner for more people. The SA-conditioner is much cleaner than standard air conditioners, which can reduce the harmful effects of industrial air pollution.

Who will take these actions?

Lower cost, higher energy efficiency will impose a new kind of SA-conditioner on the market. I think, the idea will find producers who would realize this product.

Where will these actions be taken?

An SA-conditioner can replace any standard inverter air conditioners anywhere. Because of the larger dimensions, SA-conditioner are difficult to apply to cars.

In addition, specify the country or countries where these actions will be taken.


Country 2


Country 3


Country 4


Country 5



What impact will these actions have on greenhouse gas emissions and/or adapting to climate change?

The SA-conditioner is 30-40% more efficient than the invertor air conditioners. Theoretically replacing standard invertor air conditioners with a SA-conditioner will reduce power consumption by 30-40%. But that is not entirely true. The lower cost of an SA-conditioner will make it more affordable. It is possible that even the aggregate energy used for air conditioning will increase thanks to the larger number of SA-conditioners that will work.

What are other key benefits?

SA-conditioner is 30-40% more energy efficient.
SA-conditioner is cheaper and easier to manufacture.
SA-conditioner cleans the air better.
SA-conditioner production is using less greenhouse gases.


What are the proposal’s projected costs?

SA-conditioner is 3 times cheaper than an inverter air conditioner with the same power.

Air conditioners are nice when the noise of them does not exceed 10-12 dB. Thus the noise limits air velocity. The power of the SA-conditioner depends on the volume and velocity of the flow. Thus, the new SA-conditioners are 3-5 times more voluminous than the old air conditioners. .


Cheap low-energy SA-conditioners can significantly improve the quality of life in poorer areas of the planet.

SA-conditioners are born from the Black Pavilion Project. In Black Pavilion the effect of convection is the natural ventilation for cooling the building. The same principles are used for SA-conditioning, but the natural propulsion of the air is assisted by electric motors. This significantly reduces volume.


SA-conditioner are suitable for integration into buildings with central air conditioning. SA-conditioner can use alternative sources of any mechanical  energy, avoiding the use of electric current.
