Residential Applications

SolarAir solar ventilation is a simple, yet extremely effective, tool for generating air-flow in buildings. Occupied or empty, all buildings need a through put of air to protect and reserve both structure and occupants. The SolarAir system easily installed into virtually any roof type and should require no structural changes making is cost-effective to fit. Even better, there are no running costs or maintenance requirements, so once fitted; the system should look after itself.

Air Extraction Applications

Over-heated houses

Stop your home from becoming a greenhouse why you are out at work. It’s a common problem; you’ve been at work all day, your windows and doors have been locked to prevent unwanted visitors so by the time you arrive home, the top of your house is like a sauna.

Let a SolarAir system keep your house ventilated but still secure while you are away so that you can return home to a cool home and a good night’s sleep.

Air extraction and ventilation can prevent an overheated house

Damp removal and prevention

One of the major causes of damp, particularly in older buildings, is insufficient air-flow. A SolarAir system can provide the impetus to create the air-flow you need to allow your building to breathe again. As air is drawn out at the roof through the SolarAir unit (or units for larger buildings), fresh air is pulled in through airbrick, fireplaces, windows etc to generate a flow of air that your building needs to maintain its health.

Reduce mould and moisture with better air circulation

Condensation

Condensation is a common problem in many modern homes. Sealed windows and well insulated homes are great for keeping in the warmth but they also prevent the house from ‘breathing’. Day-to-day activities such as washing up, cooking, drying cloths, or putting towels over radiators all cause moisture to saturate the air. Regular ventilation, damp air being extracted out to allow fresh air to come into the house helps keep the moisture levels in the air to a manageable level helping to prevent harmful condensation build-up.

Loft conversions

It doesn’t matter how well insulated your loft conversion is, the combination of solar-gain; the sun heating a building through glass doors and windows, and general heat rising through the building will often turn their conversion into an oven.

A SolarAir system mounted on the roof, used in conjunction with trickle vents in the windows and airbricks in the wall, can create sufficient air-flow to stop the build-up of hot air, leaving you with a cool and fresh room at the end of each day.

Holiday homes

A SolarAir system will keep your holiday home well ventilated while you are away helping to stop the build-up of damaging damp and stale air.

Static caravans and cabins

When you’ve only got a thin layer of roofing between you and the sun, it doesn’t take long for the heat to build-up. Opening the windows can be noisy and disruptive as the wind blows any unsecured papers from one side of your home to the other. A SolarAir system can provide you with a steady, regulated flow of fresh air to keep your caravan or cabin well ventilated without any trauma or fuss.

Commercial Applications

The SolarAir solar-powered air extraction is a simple, yet extremely effective, tool for generating air-flow in buildings. Occupied or empty, all buildings need a through put of air to protect and preserve both structure and occupants. The SolarAir system easily installed into virtually any roof type and should require no structural changes making is cost-effective to fit. Even better, there are no running costs or maintenance requirements, so once fitted; the system should look after itself.

System Applications

  • Combat Solar-gain
  • Provide air-changes for schools and colleges
  • Ventilation for shower blocks and public toilets
  • Create air-flow in windowless offices and factories
  • Improve ventilation in live-stock houses
  • Prevent the build-up of harmful gases in chemical storage areas
  • Reduce the demands on air-conditioning systems

Highland House Residential Care Home, Canterbury

Highland House is a purpose-built facility for older residents to enjoy the freedom of living independently with the knowledge that professional staff are on hand 24 hours a day should they be required. However, during the summer months, the building suffered from massive heat build-up due to a combination of solar-gain, a lack of opening windows and the need to be running hot water facilities throughout the day.

To combat this, the building’s management  have specified a number of SolarAir systems and had them installed along the problem areas of the building. The systems extracts away the hot air that builds up in the loft void, allowing hot air from the rooms below to be pulled through from the rooms below. The net result is multiple air changes that stop the build-up of heat and stale air.
