I can see them being used by homebuilders or refrigerated truck fleets for right now. They are cost inhibitive for the average home owner.
Cool tech. though. Hopefully it has a future.

Sounds too good to be true. Is expensive for the output. Has neat computer animations that explain nothing about how it works. Foreign accent spokesperson that says lots of words but nothing about how it works. I think that checks all the boxes for a hoax.
I just mentioned this to a YouTube channel I know of that does just this kind of investigation. Thunderf00t might see this worthy of another busted video.

What kind of weird science are they using here ? If it’s a sealed system under a vacuum and they use heat to make water vapor, the pressure from the expanding water will erase the vacuum and the system will fail until it’s cooled off. The only thing the vacuum does is lower the boiling point of water. The cooling system in your car is the reverse; the pressure raises the boiling point of water.
In a 100% sealed system it’s impossible to maintain a vacuum or pressure in one chamber only, eventually the system will stabilize its self. Without a pump or a compressor and condenser what makes the water go through the cycle of water to vapor and back to water ?
Water, or as they say “pure water” is still just water and can be corrosive, plus it’s also poor for transferring heat which is why you have to add coolant(anti-freeze) to your car.
If this thing works at all like they say, I’m predicting a very short life span.

When you decommission a refrigerant based system they capture the freon (from the closed loop) and reuse it, or dispose of it. It doesn't just get released into the atmosphere. Silly rabbits!

Is this about r22 being phased out?
