If you are interested in reducing the running time of your air conditioning, Odyssey is a great complementary system.
Odyssey is a ventilation system. It operates by exhausting warm air out of the home to draw cooler external air into the home, through a simple process of air exchange.
On days of extreme temperatures, as the temperature rises, air conditioning will need to be used to deal with the peak temperature (hottest part of the day). As the temperature cools down, Odyssey can be used to introduce the cooler air into the home faster. For example, on a hot day, without Odyssey, you may run the air conditioner from 2pm to 10pm. If you were to install Odyssey, you may only run the air conditioner from 2pm to 6pm. That’s a 4 hour saving.
If the kWh rate is $0.30, the running cost of a 5kW inverter split air conditioner, operating at 30% of its maximum power over a 4 hour period would be $1.80. Odyssey runs at a maximum of 55W, so the maximum cost of Odyssey running for 4 hours is 0.07¢. A lot less energy consumed and a big saving over the summer months!
