New HVAC Technology INVENTED!
A new technology for heating and cooling your home is being developed that could drastically change the HVAC industry as we know it! Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been experimenting with creating a refrigeration effect by using ions to drive solid-to-liquid phase changes. This new technique is called ionocaloric cooling, and it uses the same technology how adding salt to a road before a winter storm changes when ice will form. This new technology will possibly be better for the environment, less expensive to produce, and be more efficient than today's HVAC systems.
