Our Need for AC is on the Rise
Updated: Dec 10, 2018
Climate change is a serious issue that has big-time implications for the way we live.
At the top of our minds here at Kapsul - an increasing need for responsible cooling.
Worldwide, the need for AC - specifically room units - is steadily on the rise.
According to the International Energy Agency, " The world faces a ‘cold crunch.’ By 2050, around 2/3 of the world’s households could have an air conditioner. China, India and Indonesia will together account for half of the total number."
Here in the US, while some steamy regions depend on central air for much of the year (hey there, Texas) for those of us in more temperate climes, using a window unit - like the 450 W Kapsul W5 - just when and where you need it can really help cut down on your energy usage compared with central air.
What's more, each Kapsul unit will be capable of communicating directly with the grid to allow for easy opt-in for your local utilities "Smart A/C Saver" program - giving you the power to help de-stress the grid and save money during peak usage months.
We have an eye on the future to help spread the use of units with precise control and energy efficient design.
We want to help the world stay cool in the smartest way possible.
