Solar Heating Project Design Services
We design cost effective solar heating systems, which provide
high rates of return. Our systems are economical without government
subsidies in all 50 states. However, Federal and state tax
incentives and utility incentives can further improve the
economics. We know how to design to maximize the economics
in all locations.
A solar heating system from American Solar productively uses
low and mid temperature solar-heated air, which some see as
"waste heat". Our designs use innovative and practical approaches
to recover solar heat to reduce facility or building energy
use in dozens of applications.
We also produce solutions to energy problems that others
have not even considered. For example, some companies build
solar air conditioning systems requiring expensive water heating
panels. We design and build a system using solar-heated summer
air from a roof. The heated air from our system drives an
air conditioning system, which uses less electrical power than a
conventional air conditioner.
Another example is our solar re-roofing system. We design
a long-life, weather-tight roof that simply heats air to cut
heating costs. The solar heating roof has the best life cycle
economics in most cases --
better than a non-solar roof alone, and
- better than a conventional roof with ordinary solar collectors.
We can provide these solar engineering and energy design services
as part of our design-build capabilities. We can also work
with other design professionals and construction contractors
to deliver cost effective solar heating systems. We have provided
design services to architects, builders, building owners,
and energy service companies.
Where necessary, we bring in contractors and design professionals
with other required expertise. We have worked closely with
energy management firms, structural design firms, and energy
engineers on a variety of projects.
If you are responsible for designing or heating a facility,
building, or industrial process, contact us to find out how
you can cut your energy use with solar heating, solar heat
recovery, solar roofing, and thermal energy management. We
can provide unique field tested solar engineering and energy
management expertise that can save you energy and money.
