Video: double condenser A/C system tested on UK's hottest day

Recommended Posts

Jonny has just filmed another product test video for our Youtube channel: this time it's a test of our double-condenser electric air conditioning system for classic Porsche 911s on the UK's hottest day of the year so far.

With ambient temperatures circa 34°C (93°F), our new twin-condenser system takes just 90 seconds to get the blower air temperatures down to 7°C (50°F), with temps down to 5°C (40°F) in 2m30.

After only 4 minutes, our twin-fan blower unit is pumping out cold air at 3°C (37.4°F), which is substantially lower than any original factory system could achieve. Because our modern system uses an electric compressor controlled by a bespoke ECU, efficiency actually improves at low revs (such as when sitting in traffic), as opposed to belt-driven compressors, which lose cooling ability at idle.

We're always improving our products, but this latest air conditioning development is blowing us away! Find out more at the product pages or drop us an email for more information.
