Energy is the driving force of civilization. It is also a measure of the prosperity of the nation. In the present day, per capita energy consumptions increase with the increase of income. Developed countries consume more energy compared to developing countries. About 10–20% of energy has been consumed in air conditioning industry. Vapour absorption system (VAS) reduces power consumption and causes no ozone depletion. It consumes low grade of energy with respect to vapour compression system, which consumes high grade of energy. The present work experimentally analyzed the 25 bar and 230 V pumpless vapour absorption system.
