InSpire® Solar Air and Heating System is not just a wall panel, this is a solar collector and fresh air heating system.
How It Works: The InSpire® wall panel, a transpired solar collector, is mounted a few inches from the building’s outer wall. The precision perforations in the wall panels allow outside air to travel through the face of the panel. Solar heated air at the surface of the panel is drawn through the perforations where it rises between the two walls and enters the building’s central ventilation system or supply fan.
Summer Usage: The InSpire® wall panel also helps to reduce the cooling load in the summer by preventing normal solar radiation from striking the building’s main wall. Hot air is thermally siphoned up the wall and vented through holes at the top of the system, leaving the main wall cooler. In the summer, by-pass louvers allow cool fresh air to be drawn into the building at night, maintaining indoor air quality. View schematics.
We are now offering InSpire HP in a new finish, Select Blue. What is a selective surface? It’s an optical coating applied to the surface of an element of a solar energy device to reduce thermal radiation losses. Use InSpire HP to enhance absorptivity and efficiency to an already solid foundation of the solar collector. Learn more.
