Linum Systems' air conditioner is a hybrid air conditioner. The air conditioner can be driven by solar thermal power and electric power simultaneously. This means that the air conditioner can seamlessly switch from solar driven mode to electricity driven mode, depending on the availability of the sun. No user intervention is required.

From the consumer's perspective, the air conditioner operates seamlessly, come rain or shine. The Linum air conditioner provides the required cooling load regardless of the availability of the sun. As the air conditioner automatically utilizes the available sun, the electrical consumption goes down, and so does the electricity bill.
