Lower Energy Bills Due to the dry air created in your home as a result of this dehumidifier's actions, you will require less "expensive energy" to heat the air in your rooms – this will help to maintain reasonable temperatures, and to consequently reduce your utility bills. No mains electricity is required to operate this solar heater and dehumidifier.
Eco Friendliness Lower energy consumption reduces your CO2 emissions as well as your Carbon Footprint.
MkII Efficiency During each year, the MkII Solar Air Collector can contribute 3200 kWh per hour of free heat. In the United Kingdom mainland, you could be charged as much as 0.11p for every kilowatt per hour used (this price is expected to increase to 0.33p within the next five years), this solar heater could therefore save you over £300 every year, and pay for itself within 24 months. Dunster House held a MkII Solar Air Heater and Dehumidifier test of efficiency on 8 April 2010, at 11.40 am, we registered the following:
The temperature outside of the building is reading as 23.0˚c, while the air entering the building through the MkII Solar Air Heater and Dehumidifier is reading as 68.1˚c. During warmer weather the potential for greater contribution to your energy saving is even more substantial. Solar Air Heaters typically produces temperatures of around 65˚c in a UK summer climate.
Health benefits; Allergies The Solar Air Collector provides fresh air all year round, almost eliminating condensation. Due to the reduced moisture levels in your home, dust mites are less likely to survive. Mould spores associated with bronchial conditions are also less likely to be sustained and allowed to develop.
