How to HEAT a RURAL house when it is cold?
Do you have SUN at WINTER in your FARM?
SOLAR AIR COLLECTORS can help!
Types of Solar Air Heat.
Unglazed Solar air collectors.
They are collectors with a metal that absorbs heat from the sun without any top cover. They are typically placed in the facades facing the midday sun and vertically which is when the winter sun is lower.
They are easy to install and economical, they can cover a large area and be used for preheating outdoor air.
Solar air collectors with glass or plastic cover.
These collectors have a clear cover that improves the efficiency of transforming winter solar radiation into hot air for heating. The laminated glass or polycarbonate allows sunlight passes to heat the absorving metal surface and prevent heat dissipates outwards.
In cold climates in winter, covered solar air collectors are very efficient when the air is recirculated to stay warm: Indoor building cold air enters at the bottom of the sensor, it is heated by the sun’s effect and reintroduced back into the room through the top, with the help of a small fan.
In rural areas without electricity, you can opt for a solar air collector with a modest photovoltaic panel to move the small fan. When the winter sun shining on the sensor, the fan will start to heat your building or your rural farm.
Rural and agricultural applications of solar air collectors.
- Daytime heating farm buildings and livestock.
- Support for heating in buildings of high mountains, without electricity and autonomous way.
- Renewable Heating detached houses.
