Glazed solar air heaters from Sol R Heating have been tested to be the
most efficient in the world. At 89% efficiency, the Sol R Siphon system is now
the most efficient glazed solar heater in the world.
An innovation by Con Asciak, the founder and owner of Sol R Heating, the
Sol R Siphon system is designed to heat up a home or workplace in an energy
efficient way, reducing electricity bills substantially.
Designing and building passive solar homes in Armidale since 1974, Sol R
Heating founder Con Asciak developed his interest in natural methods of home
heating into an area of expertise, resulting in the Sol R Siphon system.
The Sol R Siphon is a unique patented fin designed solar panel that maximises
heat absorption and turbulent airflow to turn energy from the sun into warm air
circulating throughout the interior space. Suitable for both residential and
commercial environments, it can be installed in existing buildings or designed
for new developments.
Sol R Heating also offers optional upgrades to provide even greater operational
flexibility with the Sol R Siphon system.
The Fresh Air Upgrade enhances ventilation in the home or office by bringing
in fresh air from outside. By heating the fresh air as it enters the home and keeping
the space warm and healthy, this upgrade option works better than the old
fashioned way of simply opening a window. Moreover, an open window reduces
energy efficiency as it will expel already heated air, requiring the fresh cold
outside air to be heated from scratch.
Alternatively, the Summer Upgrade allows the home or workplace to be
cooled by drawing hot air out at ceiling level and allowing outside cooler air
to enter in a reverse cycle effect.
