The CoolBot’s patented technology intelligently controls your air conditioner – so you can harness its cooling power and keep temperatures in the 30s without freezing up your air conditioner.The CoolBot transforms any well-insulated room into a walk-in cooler by harnessing the cooling power of a standard air conditioner.Traditional walk-in cooler refrigeration systems sell for $2,500 plus installation (which can be another $2,000 with electrical setup).
Traditional systems use a “brute-force” approach to cooling: lots of coolant (which is bad for the environment), a big motor, a large surface area, and multiple fans (which can dry out your vegetables and account for up to 60% of the cost of operating electricity).Here’s the crazy thing: That $2,500+ walk-in cooler compressor you see on a small 8’ x 8’ vegetable cooler may only put out 8,500 BTUs of cooling power! That’s less BTUs than you get from a $300 window air conditioner.
Why not just use an A/C unit? First, they are electronically limited so that they can’t go below 60° F.
with some electrical bravery and skill, you could snip, solder and bypass the electrical controls so you could go lower. It will work better, but still not very well as your ability to actually utilize that cooling power drops drastically as you approach 60° F. This limitation at 60° F vs. a traditional walk-in cooler refrigeration system is driven by the lack of extra fans and surface area built into traditional walk-in cooler compressor / condenser / evaporator units which dissipate the cold without freezing up the fins of the unit.
The CoolBot uses multiple sensors, a heating element and a programmed micro-controller to direct your air conditioner’s compressor to operate in a such a way to cool the room to 36° F without ever freezing up. Additionally, our innovative interface which links the CoolBot controller to your air conditioner allows for 5 minute installations without any training, cutting, soldering or even taping.
