Because residential variable capacity air conditioning (VCAC) may be a potential enhancement or additional resource for utility programs, this research study investigated VCAC for energy efficiency and demand response (DR) programs for residential space conditioning. The investigation included a technical survey of available equipment, a laboratory assessment of three VC air conditioners of varying SEER, and a field study of the three VC systems over a California cooling season. The study demonstrates the potential efficiency and DR capabilities of the VC equipment for California residences and utility programs.
