Pre-Cool 101: Energy-Savings Innovation Is Supported by Lab Research, Field Studies

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2011) - Energy savings of up to 30% by "pre-cooling" the most common type of commercial and residential air conditioning systems is supported by laboratory research and field studies, according to Greenway Design Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GDGI).

"Most homes and businesses have 'split-system' air conditioning, and for these systems heat is problematic," says Darius Jakubik, Greenway's senior vice president. "The more heat there is, the more demand we put on the system. But the hotter it is outside, the less efficiently AC systems can work. The key to energy-efficiency for air conditioning is to lower the outside air temperature before it goes into the condensing coils."

One study, conducted by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA and commissioned by Greenway in 2005, concluded, "by using Cool-n-Save, even in a climate that endures high humidity, the heat transfer from the refrigerant to the air is substantially increased."

A second completely independent study of pre-cooling was conducted in 2009 by researchers at the Department of Building Services Engineering at Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. This research also concluded that significant energy savings may be generated by "enhancing the heat transfer rate in condensers by using water mist to pre-cool ambient air temperature around the condenser coils."

Researchers of both studies estimated that pre-cooling air conditioning systems may decrease energy consumption by as much as 30%. Subsequent field studies of Cool-n-Save installations conducted by Greenway Design Group, Inc. have produced results that support the conclusion of the researchers.

More than 16,000 commercial and residential Cool-n-Save® pre-cooling systems have been sold. For more information about the company and its products, call 714-892-0011 or visit www.coolnsave.com and www.greenwaydesigns.com.
