Smartbreeze solar heating and cooling
When we recommend this product
Australian made solar heating, cooling and ventilation system located on the roof as seen on Better Homes and Garden – Dec 2010 to assist heating and cooling the home. Purges hot air from the roof on a hot day, provides nocturnal cooling throughout the night to cool the home after a hot day and heats on a cool day when radiant warm air is available. Powered by solar and thermostatically controlled – set and forget
As a winter heating solution this system relies on your roof space being warmed by the sun, so it is not recommended for areas with high levels of cloud cover in winter or homes whose roofs are shaded by trees. Additionally the warming it provides is excellent at taking off the chill, but does not provide the same level of heating as a ducted gas system for example, which can be thermostatically controlled. In summer, this system will remove excess heat from the roof space to aid in cooling your home in the evening.
How to get the most from this product
As with all heating systems the Smartbreeze system is only as efficient as your insulation, draught proofing and window treatments allow your home to be. It is recommended that you address these aspects of home comfort before you invest in a new heating system, particularly sealing large draughts, topping up your roof insulation and reducing heat loss from your windows.
