Solar Heating and Cooling

In modern buildings, one of the largest energy uses is space heating and cooling. According tto the HVAC&R magazine, cooling costs may represent up to 40% of total energy use.
Residential projects locates in temperate or hot climates show the same tendency, with HVAC systems being the highest energy consumers, in spite of the high efficiency and COP of modern systems.

Space heating (achieved either through electric, natural gas, or another fuel) is one of the most inefficient energy conversion processes, due to the fact that thermal losses represent important costs for the final client.

GIE SAS offers energy efficient solutions for both cases in the form of Solar AC and Solar Heating.

  • Savings from 30 to 60% in final heating/cooling costs.
  • Use of photovoltaic or solar thermal energy to drive the system, depending on size.
