About

The aerothermal wall invented by Air Booster collects solar energy from the walls of metal cladding buildings. This considerable energy, which was not really used until then, is now used to heat buildings in winter, to cool in summer at night and/or to dry agricultural foodstuffs, wood, industrial waste, or sludge from sewage treatment plants. In winter, at the latitude of France, on a sunny day, when the outside temperature is only 8°C, that of the sheet metal cladding is around 60 ° C. It is this energy that will be valued. By fixing a flat sheet behind the ribs of the siding, we obtain channels in which we will circulate the outside air. As it travels, the air will heat up in contact with the cladding heated by the sun. This hot air is then injected into the building. The independent research firm Nobatek has shown that the savings are considerable : your energy bill is reduced by up to 83% thanks to a power of 600Wp / m2. By the very nature of the system, the ROI is very short, between 2 and 8 years.
