Vehicle or Small Area

  Complete Line of VehiCools  We offer a complete line of cooling options for any vehicle or small area. From our sturdy plastic models called the Kar Kools, to our latest invention, the stainless steel TruckCool. Take a look to see which vehicle-cooling option is best for you!

Truck Cool  Truck-Cool  This compact new model is designed specifically to cool the cab of an 18 wheeler with the intention of creating an innovative way to keep cool while staying in compliance with the new No Idle Laws.  Please call for more details. The Double 8-12 (2-812) is similar to the KAR KOOL (see below) but self-contained! The Double 8 is named for its dual cooling fans (with two 8 inch diameter 12 volt fans) and can be installed with its own water reservoir. The unit has a  float  switch which controls an automatic fill system! Originally designed for 18-wheelers to provide cooling to drivers while parked to accommodate the new "NO IDLE LAW".  The new Double-8 can also be used in other applications, including pick-up trucks, RVs, campers, small rooms or new additions and much much more!  Please contact us for more information of idle free cooling solutions with no gas mileage penalties. 

Lid design may vary slightly  Kar Kool 312 NOW with 2 Speed Switch  THE LOWEST ENERGY COOLER IN THE WORLD! NOW EVAPORATIVE COOLING FOR YOUR CAR, TRUCK, OR RV, for a fraction of the cost of refrigeration! Low energy, just 2.5 amps at 12 volts for the TRI-COOL!  The 312 model now comes standard with two speeds. Uses CelDektm, which is the most efficient evaporative cooling media on the planet! KAR KOOLtm will cool hot dry air as much as 25 DEGREES!

Dimensions: 17" wide, 11.5" tall, 14" deep


Home or Business

SOLAR CHILL 14" XP   This new cooler is also available in 24 and 48 volts, and can cool up to 300 square feet.  This unit uses 38 to 52 watts and can be run direct from a 85 to 130 watt PV panel, although we recommend deep cycle batteries for best performance. The XP in the product number stands for extra performance, this is due to the 8" thick wet pad, more pad media means cooler air!  All of our Solar Chill models now come standard with 8" inch thick pads (Give us a call to upgrade your older Solar Chill Models to XP!)  The 1412XP has dimensions of 19.5" x 21" x 24", pulls between 38 - 52 watts, moves air at 1150 CFM.

KAR KOOLtm will cool hot dry air as much as 25 DEGREES!

Control Package (Now with speed control)  Now cooling your home couldn't be easier with the use of one of our control packages.  This wall mounted control box contains a thermostat, a two speed (HI/LOW) fan switch, a pump switch, and a timer for the cleanout pump.  Set the thermostat and go to sleep without worrying about wasting energy or getting too cold.  Run just the fan at night to conserve energy and water or just the pump for a few minutes to get the pad wet before firing up the cooler.  The cleanout timer runs a pump that will flush out all the water and harmful minerals from your cooler for five minutes which extends the life of the pump, pads, and cooler box.  This is a great add-on to any home cooling system and comes highly recommended by your cooling specialist. Available in all voltages, see price list and specifications for more details.

  Air Diffusers  This adjustable louver air diffuser is for installation with all the Solar Chill models. Air diffusers are mounted in the house/building and not only provide protection from getting in the fan but helps to move the air to desired locations of the house/building with the horizontal and vertical adjustable louvers.

  Pump Control Timer Board  One of our newest and best innovations ever, this pump control timer board is an electronic circuit board mounted to the back of the electrical cover plate.  This board can be added to any of our 12, 24 or 48 volt coolers as an upgrade and is now installed standard on all new coolers in all voltages!

What does it do?  The pump board has 2 main functions:  to lower the output air temperature, and to increase the efficiency of the cooler by decreasing the amount of energy used, and increasing the life of the pump by decreasing the duty cycle.

The pump board has a built in timer that turns the pump on for two minutes and off for three.  How does this decrease the temperature of the cooler output air?  Since there is not a steady flow of water passing over the pad at all times the water held in the pad has a chance to get colder than it would if it was flowing over the pad consistently.  With evaporative cooling as the pad gets colder the output air also gets colder.  The pump board also lowers the amount of energy used since the pump is "on" for less than half the time, and it will as extend the life of the pump.
