Over 18,000 CoolBots use standard window air conditioners to turn super-insulated rooms into walk-in coolers. Farmers, florists, breweries, wineries, pubs, caterers, restaurants and grocery stores use CoolBots.
CoolBot cooler systems cost less to install compared with conventional compressor-cooled walk-in refrigerators or coolers. Conventional coolers use more electricity, have higher repair bills and tend to dry out greens and vegetables more than CoolBot cooled coolers.
CoolBot controllers cost about $300. Ron Khosla of Huguenot Street Farm in New Paltz, NY invented CoolBots.
CoolBot systems are ideal for users who access their cooler less than five times per hour and want to maintain a cooler temperature of 37 degrees F or above. These users will save the most electricity compared to using conventional coolers. Users who seek 36 degrees F will need to open the door less often and be patient while the temperature drops to 36. These users will save some electricity compared to using a conventional cooler. Users who need coolers to maintain temperatures below 34 degrees F should use conventional coolers with compressors.
Anyone can build a super-insulated room. Learn how and read more about CoolBots here.
