Environmental Solar Systems manufactures SunMate hot air solar panels. These hot air solar panels weigh about 90 pounds and have dimensions of 4x35x77 inches respectively. This eco-friendly solar panel is specifically designed for homes and provides cost effective heating options.
The SunMate hot air solar panel functions by drawing cool air from the house to the absorber plate. This cool air gets warmed in the absorber plate due to the sun’s energy, which is then circulated back to the house. This hot air solar panel comprises an inbuilt thermostat and a blower in addition to the absorber plate.
The inbuilt thermostat provides an indication, when the temperature of the absorber plate reaches a maximum of 110 degrees Fahrenheit by activating the blower. In case, when the temperature of the absorber plate drops to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, the blower gets switched off. A single SunMate hot air solar panel has the capability to heat a maximum area of 700 square feet. With a double-sealed solar glass, the solar panel from Environmental Solar Systems prevents water leakage and air infiltration. Other characteristics of the SunMate hot air solar panel include rugged aluminum frame, EPDM rubber seal, polyisocyanurate insulation, screws and hardware made from stainless steel, aluminum heat exchanger, mounting brackets and EPDM rubber gaskets.
