Energy Cost Savings

Generating energy on site delivers significant energy cost savings and predictable budget forecasting.

Follow the money

Energy use varies among buildings, but each facility shares a common energy footprint.

There is a consistent pattern;  Space heating is the largest energy demand for building owners in cold climates like ours.  Using free solar heat instead of expensive heating fuel benefits financial and sustainability goals.  By reducing energy budgets, companies and public agencies also improve productivity and profitability.

Building Integrated

 Building integrated solar air heating systems will continue to generate savings long after the 40 year warranty.  Custom engineered, with easy integration and low maintenance, SolarWall systems offer energy saving solutions for every building type.   

How it Works

SolarWall systems use solar energy to pre-heat ventilation air for your building. How does it work? A transpired plate collector system sits framed 6 to 8 inches from the existing building wall.

Fans bring fresh air into the building through a perforated metal wall system instead of a typical louver,. The sun heats a thin boundary layer of air on the surface of the metal. The airflow collects that heat as it passes through the perforations. Heat gains can be from 20-50°c depending on the design, reducing heating fuel use by up to 50%.

Conventional ducting and distribution systems move the hot air through the the building. 

No matter what your budget is –  free heat is always welcome!

“The SolarWall has been rated in the ‘top two percent of energy related inventions’ “

“Improving air quality and comfort without increasing space heating costs was a real challenge, especially in our climate, but the SOLARWALL system did just that. “

 ~ Alois First, Plant Engineer, BOEING

“This collector exhibits the highest known efficiency for an active solar heating system.”
