Alesta Cool test results day 1

Test results graph Day 1, Design Hub

We were in front of the Design Hub, Barcelona's Institute of Culture, that works to promote better understanding and good use of design in general. The design of this building involves a high degree of environmental quality, sustainability and energy sufficiency. This was the ideal scenery to put our test objects to the first test.

At certain moments we had some clouds, which is clearly to be seen in the graph, nevertheless the biggest difference achieved between the Alesta Cool and the standard Alesta AP was at 10.14h. The surface temperature of the Alesta AP rose to 46.3°C and Alesta Cool to 28.9°C resulting into a remarkable difference of 17.4°C. The average difference over the course of the day between both qualities was 9.7°C.
