The company’s innovation story started because of the lifelong research done by the founder’s dad. Like most innovation story, things were done at the frontyard next to the garage of a partner’s home office, where a very old solar panel was available and can be tweaked and an aircond compressor can be drilled to the living room.
So we began in in 2012, with research and development into affordable solar cooling on split unit systems – using solar thermal vacuum systems. The result is a solar hybrid split unit air conditioning system, which we called Sonneaire. The Sonneaire aircond helped to cut down the energy consumption by half, but still retain the same cooling capacity. By 2014 we came out with Sonneaire Solar Air Conditioning Systems – as our first commercial product thanks to the support by our investor and parent company Alam Dingin Air Conditioning Engineering Sdn. Bhd. (www.alamdingin.com) and a grant we won from Cradle Sdn. Bhd. We have installed 50 units at various sites in Malaysia including McDonalds Restaurant (in Putrajaya) and at an eco based resort in Bentong, Pahang.
In 2016, we developed a new version based on the similar principle as the solar hybrid air conditioning system. This is another hybrid minus the solar thermal vacuum systems. In the first version, the sun’s heat was used in a system of two stage compression, now we have replaced that with a thermal heat recovery system which collects heat from the split unit’s compressor and recycled that, to do the same. The result is a similarly super energy efficient air conditioning system, minus the cost of the solar thermal vacuum system and the cost of the peripherals for installing and maintaining it.
It made such a split unit air conditioning systems, runs efficiently, yet the investment cost is now much much less than the cost of the original Sonneaire Solar Air Conditioning Systems. In terms of price, it is now comparable to inverter airconds. It is now patented and we called the new innovation Sonneaire Coolbox Save. It became our flagship and best selling product and we have deployed that to most of the 24 hours McDonalds Restaurants in Klang Valley.
As a company focusing on innovation, today, we own one patent and as we are continuously researching, and improving our product development as well as bringing other similar products that helps to cool down efficiently to give the best comfort and indoor air quality to our customers.
