Why use electricity to power mechanical, compressor-based refrigeration systems when cold, fresh air can cool a refrigerated space for free? This project involves a feasibility review of potential systems that could monitor outside and inside temperatures and bring, fresh, filtered outside air into a cooler during the winter. When outside air is used for cooling, conventional mechanical refrigeration system components are shut off and do not consume any energy.
