breakthrough patented passive solar air heating shutter system looks just
like a vertical house window shutter – but does something no other
window shutter can do - generates heat!
Use the power of the sun to
help generate free heat and reduce your heating bills with solar heating
technology. The unique Solar Air Heater shutters passive solar heater is
capable of reducing heating bills by as much as 45% per room. This
breakthrough shutter design, passive solar heating shutter application
generates clean, renewable heat without changing the look of you home.
It's an easy, affordable and a cost effective way to bring passive solar
heating into your home, apartment, office or building to reduce heating
installed side by side next to your south-facing windows (sunny side), the

monthly heating bills?
fall and winter the sun is low in the sky. South-facing rooms receive the
majority of the sun’s direct rays. When Solar Air Heater shutters are
installed along side of your existing windows, these rooms have more
exposure to the sun energy from outside your house. The sun heats the
inside of each shutter using the Patented energy absorbing aluminum core of
each heating shutter surface area. As your inside room air travels through
the shutters heated insert cores, it is heated up to 160 degrees and
exits the top to re-circulate into your room as free
you can turn your thermostat down during a sunny day and let the Solar Air
Heater shutters help keep temperatures up. Even if no one is home during the
day, the Solar Air Heater shutters will provide heat to your home for free.
And when you return home your furnace won’t have to work as hard to
raise the temperature to the level you desire. The less your furnace works
means there’s money being saved on home heating
Not only do
Solar Air Heater shutters generate free solar heat, but they are
aesthetically appealing. Solar Air Heater shutters look like existing house
shutters and are the smart, simple way to bring solar heat into your home
while lowering your heating bills and reduce dependence on fossil

Multiple temperature set way points enable the fan to either ramp up or down
depending on your inside panel temperature.
Examples: If a cloud passes between the sun and
the panel, the temperature drops. The fan will automatically ramp down.
If it’s a hazy day, one of the preset temperatures will control CFM
output to accommodate the panel temperature. A bright sunny day, the fan
will ramp up to full CFM output.

United States Patent
Solar Air Heater, Solar Air Heating
Adding a solar air heater system to your home is one way
to offset increasing energy costs. A Solar air heater works by
circulating air from inside your home through the system mounted on the
exterior wall. The room air can gain up to 30 - 40 degrees before being
vented back into the room. Our module system design allows a multiple array
to accommodate maximum outside surface area. Two 4-5" holes are required to
be drilled through the exterior wall to accommodate the intake and exhaust
ducts. These solar air heaters are used to supplement an existing home
heating system and can save up to 30% to 40% on home heating costs
Older Style Solar Air Heaters
- Most solar air heaters work on the same
principle as a greenhouse wherein sunlight is converted to heat within a
glass or plastic covered enclosure. The heat is then trapped in the
enclosure by the glass or plastic. Solar heating is an economical way for
persons to augment the heating of homes and other buildings. The devices can
be economical to build or buy and energy from the sun is free.
Still, older style devices are not as efficient as homeowners or
other building owners would like. The reason for this, at least in part, is
because cold incoming air is allowed to mix with the heated air in the solar
air heater. Such mixing decreases the average temperature of the air in the
heater and, thus, reduces the overall efficiency of the
- Solar air heaters have tried to increase
efficiency by one or more of, for example, increasing the size of the
heater, increasing the surface area for radiant energy absorbance within the
heater without increasing external surface area or increasing the layers of
clear, transparent or translucent material covering the device.
One older style solar air heater is described in the book "Solar
Air Heater" (Ray Wolf, Rodale Plans, 1981). This solar air heater tries to
increase efficiency by increasing the surface area of the heater. This
heater is described as a 4 foot by 8 foot enclosed space covered with
translucent fiberglass cloth where cold room air is forced into the device
at the base, heated by solar energy and then expelled from outlets at the
top back into the room. The enclosure is one large area where cold air can
mix with warmer air thereby bringing down the average temperature of the air
within the device and, thus, lessening the temperature of the air being
expelled back into the room. Additionally, the device is designed to
permanently mount on an external wall of the building. Many homes may not
have such an expanse of wall space conveniently located for both best sun
exposure and best room air exchange.
- Our 1500 Series relates to a solar
air heater wherein the enclosed space within the device housing is divided
into several essentially isolated sections by a partition. The
partition(s) of the 1500 Series solar air heaters are
parallel to each other and to the top and bottom panels of the enclosure.
The partition(s) of the enclosure contact the side panels perpendicularly
and contact the front and back panels at a non-perpendicular angle.
Furthermore, the partitions of the 1500 Series comprise a
plurality of channels allowing adjacent sections to be in fluid
communication with each other. The channels are small enough in diameter to
prevent any significant back flow of air. This design not only solves
the older style solar air heater problem of incoming cold air
mixing with the heated air within the heater but also provides the
unsuspected benefit of increased heater efficiency
by heating the air in a step-wise manner. This step-wise heating of the air,
where the heated air of one section provides the starting air of the next
adjacent section, results in a greater temperature gain as compared to a
similar sized device not incorporating the step-wise heating technology of
the 1500 Series. Additionally, the partitions of the solar heater of
the 1500 Series also aid in the heating of the air. The partitions
of the 1500 Series, in one embodiment, are made of materials and or colors
which are known to absorb solar radiant energy thereby proving additional
heating of the air as it passes through the channels of the
The return on
investment (ROI) for a solar air heater purchase is relatively short. Your
energy savings will equal the cost to buy and install the system in 2
to 4 years.
Unlike conventional heating systems, solar air heaters require
very little maintenance and they keep working decades beyond the initial
cost. "A greener energy solution for the world" is our company slogan and
purchasing our solar air heater modules will decrease Propane, Electricity,
Natural Gas, and Oil consumption. The energy source to power your solar air
heater module system is sunlight, and it’s free from day
Installation is inexpensive and easy:
Our solar air heater systems design is simple and within the
capacity of any DIY-er. Other solar air heaters measure between 4 to 5 feet
wide by 7 to 8 feet high. They're heavy, so you'll need a helper or two to
mount one on a roof or side of your dwelling adding a considerable
installation cost. The freight can easily run between, $300.00 to $600.00
Our Solar Air Heater 1500 Series Modules have been specifically
designed to be both easy to install (1 person installation) and easy to
remove in the event of relocating. Easy under the arm handling makes this a
safe, and easy installation. Shipping and handling of each Module is between
22.00 and 35.00 per module, saving hundreds of dollars when calculation your
initial cost over other available solar air heater
How it’s made:
All of the
materials used in the fabrication of our Solar Air Heater 1500 series module
are made in the United States of America. The thermal absorbing insert are protected by a
United States Patent. The proprietary design of the 1500 series manufactured
by Solar Air Systems is manufactured under a license
The inserts are constructed of thin gauge, annealed,
aluminum sheet. Each insert with dimensions of 14 by 6 inches. It has
rigidity in its length.
One side is coated with a high temperature carbon based paint,
tailored to the infrared spectrum of sunlight, while the other side is clear
aluminum and quite irradiative.
