The High Performance Solarwall Air Heating System

Ford of Canada in Oakville, Ontario has installed in the summer of 1990, a high performance Solarwall on the south-facing wall of their car assembly plant. The Solarwall is an aesthetically pleasing solar collector that could be retrofitted to an existing wall without the use of the expensive glazing, to provide heated make-up ventilation air for the industrial or commercial building applications that have large south-facing walls. This installation reduces energy costs in two ways: by capturing solar energy, and by recapturing heat lost through the south-facing wall of the building.
