Heating Air With Sunlight!

How does solar thermal
technology work?

Discover the fundamental principles behind solar energy, explaining how sunlight is used to heat air.

Sunlight Absorption

The process begins with a solar air collector, which is usually installed on a wall or roof facing the sun. The collector has a dark-colored absorbent surface that captures and absorbs solar radiation. This surface is often made of metal and is designed to maximize heat absorption.

Air Heating

As the sun heats the collector’s surface, the air inside or around the collector is also heated. This can be done in two ways: In a ‘closed-loop’ system, air is circulated inside the collector through vents or tubes, getting heated directly by the absorptive surface. In an ‘open-loop’ system, air passes over or through the collector, absorbing heat as it moves.

Air Heating

Once the air is heated, it needs to be circulated into the space that requires heating. This is typically achieved using fans or blowers. In passive systems, natural convection can circulate the air, but active systems use mechanical means to ensure efficient and controlled distribution of the heated air.

Heat Distribution and Regulation

The heated air is then distributed throughout the building or space using conventional ductwork or through specific vents. The system can be integrated with existing heating and ventilation systems for better distribution. Temperature regulation is typically managed using thermostats and controls to maintain a comfortable and consistent indoor temperature.
