In the end, a consumer friendly unit that provides cost effectiveness, energy savings probabilities, efficiency, practical use, reasonable maintenance and sustainability is the only path moving forward. This innovation will be considered a novel energy source of the new generation.
Market Ready Advantages
Market ready version will create a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants into the environment.
The ducted fans use a low consumption of energy and have a low impact on the environment.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The proposed system is a technology that could revolutionize the HVAC industry. With the proper funding we believe it could create a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, eliminate pollutants into the environment, and it would have a minimal use of natural resources.
Ducted fan technology in combination with an advanced rotating spin chamber creates hot and cold air on demand by creating a high-pressure self- contained vortex. Once the vortex is created, it separates the hot and cold air through a heat pump exchanger and pressurizes it for optimal use in a variety of residential and commercial applications.
Robert Wajda, the inventor and principal investigator, generated the idea more than twenty years ago when reading an article about three reporters caught in a tornado. In their harrowing experience they described a significant temperature change for several seconds as the tornado passed directly above them. That is when he got the idea. Why not capture that same phenomena in a controlled setting. Vortexes are natural phenomena in the universe that are the driving force behind massive amounts of energy.
Knowing there was a way to tap into this, his research led him to an invention called the Vortex Tube. This devise, invented in the 1930’s, was ruled out as too inefficient for anything other than spot heating or cooling.
The Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System has the potential for large scale success. A single market ready prototype is ready to be created.

Moisture and Weather Studies: Testing needs to be investigated in different environments. (i.e. 110 degrees vs 10 degrees, humid air vs dry air)
Drafting: Continued design and enhancement of innovation.
Creating (case) studies and experiments directed towards a deeper vision of this innovation to improve it’s untapped potential. Once a market ready version is proven, it’s underlying impact on the commercial market will be substantial. Positive economic growth will spur through a growing new industry, while also supporting a greener solution to heating and cooling living and working places. This innovation is a protected interest that will focus on US manufacturing and job creation such as: Manufacturing, logistics, sales, technicians, maintenance, and even jobs unforeseen yet. We genuinely feel R&D on the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System will be a great contribution to science and society.
