ZEN / Thermal Conditioner


Existing Air Conditioners use harmful CFCs, HFCs as refrigerants and vapor compression cycle for air conditioning. They work in a closed environment. Moreover desert coolers cannot be used in all weather conditions.

Zen thermal conditioner uses Peltier effect (thermo-electric cooling effect) for air conditioning instead of harmful refrigerant. When the polarity of the current in the circuit is reversed it produces heating effect , thus can be used in all winters as heater.
