The refrigerator has a compressor that circulates refrigerant in an auxiliary evaporator adjacent to the refrigerator compartment to freeze the water in the refrigerator at night and to allow the ice to keep the refrigerator cold. In another embodiment, the refrigerator is combined with a heat pump such that the outdoor heat exchanger of the heat pump and the outdoor heat exchanger of the refrigerator are in close thermal contact. Another embodiment includes a heat pump having a second evaporator near the refrigerator compartment to cool the inside of the refrigerator compartment and heat the home simultaneously by transferring the heat from inside the refrigerator to the indoors.

    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for a window and a method for cooling a room including a window. In some examples, the window may include a first pane and a second pane spaced from and in optical communication with the first pane defining a generator chamber. An evaporator chamber may be disposed in the window with a pressure so that the evaporator chamber is effective to receive heat from the room and boil a refrigerant to produce a first vapor. An absorber chamber may be effective to receive and condense the first vapor on an absorbent to produce a solution. The generator chamber may be effective to receive heat through the first pane, receive the solution and heat the solution to produce a second vapor. A condenser chamber may be effective to receive the second vapor and cool the second vapor to produce the refrigerant.
