The SolaMate solar heating and cooling system is an exciting new, simple technology designed to efficiently harvest solar energy to heat your home. The clever panel design requires no moving parts and is made from robust materials commonly used in building construction.
Solar radiation penetrates the top surface of the SolaMate panel where it is trapped by a triple-glazed layer and absorbed uniformly across the panel. As the air passes through the panel, the collected heat is transferred to the air stream, generating a flow of warm fresh air.
The SolaMate panel is designed to integrate seamlessly with the HRV ventilation system. The heated air is fanned through a medical grade filter and ducted throughout your house.
SolaMate's set-and-forget thermostat controller ensures the maximum amount of solar energy is utilized without ever overheating.
How Does SolaMate Work To Cool My Home In Summer?
On hot summer nights, your SolaMate brings fresh cool air into your house as soon as the sun goes down.
Houses can be slow to recover from the heat absorbed during the day, meaning that outside temperatures are often 5-10°C cooler than inside.
SolaMate quickly replaces the hot indoor air with fresh cool ambient air without the need to open windows, and continuously delivers this cool fresh air into your house throughout the night.
Not only will you sleep better at night, but the air conditioning load will be significantly reduced the next day.
SolaMate's set-and-forget thermostat controller automatically detects when cooler outside air becomes available and switches off again when the morning sun kicks in.
How Does SolaMate Clean And Filter My Air?
After the outside air has been drawn through SolaMate and heated, it passes through an F6 deep pleat filter, which is effective at removing dust, pollens and allergens down to 0.4 of a micron. How good is that? Well, a human hair is around 100 microns in diameter! If you live in a dusty environment, or if hay fever and allergens are a problem for you, SolaMate can help.
How Much Does SolaMate Cost?
SolaMate is now available as an easy to install DIY kit. The kit contains everything you need- the SolaMate panel(s), the high-efficiency fan, all ductwork and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Choose from the original Fx long shape, or the new 'Stumpy' Sp model.
