Keema Cars is a car showroom in the hot climate of Queensland. Keema cars had multiple energy saving Solar Whiz units installed to make their showroom a more comfortable work environment for their customers and employees.
Solar air conditioning from Solar Whiz is strong enough to ventilate and cool large commercial spaces. This includes: warehouses, showrooms, like Keema Cars, factories, schools and offices. The Solar Whiz ventilation unit, SW-RAF10000, is an energy efficient way to use your electricity powered air conditioning less. Solar Whiz works in conjunction with powered airconditioning on extremely hot days to cool your large space faster and be energy saving by using your air conditioning less than you would have to with no roof ventilation occurring as soon as the sun comes out.
‘All in all a very good result, keeping the mezzanine to ambient temp is a great success.’ – Shaun Dragona – Keema Cars Service Manager.
Solar Whiz airconditioners reduce the heat load in the roof space and ceiling this creates a fresh and cool working environment without the need for regular mains powered air conditioning. The side wall of Keema Cars receives the most sunlight and heat during the day as it faces the sun. With the energy efficient Solar Whiz installed the temperature came down to 39 degrees. A very effective energy saving result for a space that is constantly heated by the sun.
Our solar powered fans are powerful enough to ventilate and introduce fresh air to large, open commercial spaces. The solar Whiz can help you save energy day and night by ventilating your roof space, even if it is muggy and hot at night time. All day round the Solar Whiz can bring fresh air into your work space with a night a day/night pack for powered nigh time operations. Solar Whiz still uses significantly less power than a traditional air conditioning system and in areas, such as the tropical weather of Queensland, we understand that ventilation needs to occur after the sun as set as well to get the most of out of your cooling systems.
This diagram shows the temperatures in the Keema Cars showroom after the Solar Whiz was installed. The outside ambient temperature was 37 degrees celsius on this day. All spaces, except for the side wall, were at or under the outside ambient temperature.
