Unlike photovoltaic systems, power from the sun is used to heat air and water – not to generate electricity.
When drying the air, which reduces problematic levels of humidity in your living space, the fresh air warmed by the sun is channelled directly into the home. This dries the room and keeps it that way – for a comfortable indoor climate.
It’s important that the air can flow back out through openings in the building. Special thermal storage devices make it possible to use time-delayed heating and ventilation cooling overnight or on cloudy days.
Using this technology is NOT a substitute for potentially necessary drying methods for damp or wet masonry caused by water penetration through the capillaries or joints.
