Solar air heating
Wall air solar heater
Efficient heating system that uses solar energy to heat air
The wall solar air heating system of Magnovent is the perfect solution to heat efficiently any industrial warehouse or commercial premise. The integration of this solar heating system will increase workers or customers comfort.
This innovative system allows having hot air without spending energy, as it uses the hot generated by the sun to heat the air that will be then introduced in the building. Additionally, the heating system generates a hot air insulating barrier that avoids cold entrance through the walls.
Solar air heating can be used both as a unique heating system or in combination with the existing heating systems to reduce their power consumption and increase their lifetimes.
The solar wall is able to obtain air at a temperature of up to 45ºC higher than the ambient temperature like you can see in the next example corresponding to a Canadian installation.
Avoids the energy consumption of a traditional HVAC machine
Reduces load in heating systems
Creates an insulating heat barrier and heats the inside of the building
Generates zero CO2 emissions
Solar heating system operation in non-climate buildings
The Lubi® perforated glazing collector allows the entrance of fresh air from the environment that stays between the industrial warehouse and the heating system structure. The sun heats the trapped air that is then absorbed by a fan and conducted through the ducts installed inside the industrial building.
In order to maximize efficiency and keep the generated air temperature constant, the system reuses the hot air of the building top coats.
The system is unabled in summer by opening the top part.
Solar air heating system operation in climate buildings
In climated buildings, the wall solar heating system allows that the air absorbed by the HVAC machine is hotter than the ambient temperature air. This makes an important consumption reduction, and, consequently, its lifetime is increased and the maintenance costs reduced.
The HVAC system can take air from an alternative input during summer.
Installation & integration of the solar heating system
The solar air heating system is easy to install and can be integrated perfectly in any wall.
The perforated glazing collectors are fitted in vertical columns over guides previously screwed to the wall.
In a dark surface, our solar heating system is 20% more efficient than any other glass or metal solar collector. However, in a light surface, the system becomes 58% more efficient.
We can work together with architects or designers to integrate totally the solar air heating in the industrial warehouse.
