The Sun Lizard Solar Heat Extractor -- How Does It Work?
The Sun Lizard Solar Heat Extractor provides ventilation and actively removes
hot air from your rooms using solar energyThe more sunlight you receive during
the hot summer days, the harder the system works to reduce the heat build up
in your home.
The system comes with the following key components:
- Photovoltaic Panel (PV) - that generates electricity for
the fans and electronic control system and
- Fan Box – that moves the air from one room to another
- Ceiling Diffusers
- Exhaust Flue / Adaptor
- Electronic Control System
The system extracts hot air from a room using four solar powered
fans inside a fan box. The hot air is released to the outside
atmosphere either through an exhaust flue (standard Heat Extractor),
or an exhaust (Heat Extractor NC – where there is no roof
The Electronic Control System controls how much air is moving
out of the building via a wall switch that can switch the system
on/off and high/low.
A mains backup plug pack comes with each system to enable ventilation
and heat extraction to continue into hot summer nights when there
is no sun light. It can be installed without an electrician provided
there is an accessible power point.
Filtered Cooling Vents can increase cooling
effectiveness by capturing cooler air into your home through
a number of ways. For example, Filtered Cooling Vents enables
cool air to flow into the building and replace the hot air being
expelled. It includes
a filter to remove dust, smells and insects.
PV frame is required where the roof of your building is not facing
north and/or that the pitch of the roof is not at the correct
angle for maximum solar gain.
