Greenway Design Group, Inc. is the innovator of commercial and residential pre-cool solutions for HVAC systems under the Cool-n-Save® and Cool Release™ brands. Since 2005, we have worked to create reliable and cost-effective devices to cool homes and commercial buildings, and save money. Thousands of property owners currently use Cool-n-Save® to control the spiraling cost of energy and reduce maintenance cost for their HVAC systems. Many have realized energy cost savings as high as 30%.
Cool-n-Save integrates several innovations to achieve dramatic energy savings. While there is a huge difference in terms of complexity and performance between our commercial and residential systems, both work under the same basic concept. When the compressor turns on, water passes through our Cool Release water treatment system and is converted into micro mist. The mist is injected into the air around the HVAC unit and evaporates almost instantly, removing ambient heat from the air before it reaches the condenser coils. The system works more efficiently and uses less energy. Buildings and homes cool faster and owners save money on reduced maintenance and significantly lower energy cost.
Third-party tests show that Cool-n-Save® Pre-Cool solutions reduce energy consumption of HVAC systems by as much as 30%. The amount of actual energy savings depends upon the climate, weather, and the condition and size of the heat exchange unit; older/smaller units will not produce the same results as do newer/larger ones. In field studies and from data submitted to us by our commercial customers, we know that the average savings is about 24%. Some installations have experienced very high savings (over 30%); none less than 22%. Anecdotal tests by residential customers confirm our claim that savings may be as high as 30% with average savings of about 24%, but some have also reported energy savings of about 15%.

A 2,400 square foot convenience store serviced by two 10-ton HVAC condensers plus two smaller condensers that service a walk-in cooler. After installation, this location experienced monthly average savings of 7.2% in the overall electricity cost. The expected payback is less than one year.
City Club Store in Lincoln Monterrey N.L. Mexico
Prior to installation, one HVAC unit consumed 8,802 kWh. After Cool-n-Save was installed, consumption dropped to 6,523 kWh – more than 25%. There are more than 30 condensers at this location – we estimate a total annual savings of more than $500,000. At that rate, the client will realize a substantial profit from his investment in less than one year.
