Transpired Solar Air Heating Wall System
Budgets Versus Ventilation
Because of high energy costs to condition outside air, ventilation rates are often reduced, creating environments that impair learning, productivity and health. The result has been termed, “Sick Building Syndrome,” with symptoms that include irritated eyes, nose and throat; upper respiratory infections; nausea; dizziness; headaches and fatigue; or sleepiness. When occupants do not feel well, they do not perform well.
Transpired Solar Air Heating
The InSpire Solar Air Heating Wall System improves ventilation while reducing energy costs. The wall system is a cladding that heats fresh air. The concept is simple:
• Perforated metal wall panels are installed several inches from a wall, creating air space or plenum
• Sunlight heats the air at the surface of the collector
