How Does Our Solar PreHeating Ventilation Work?
Indoor Air Quality Monitor Starts System.
Our Preheat Ventilation System is maintained by both an air quality monitor and solar thermostat, having the capability to turn on and off the system. When either the room temperature or air quality in your building gets below a prescribed standard, the Preheat Ventilation System turns on.
Panel Grabs Fresh Air From Outside.
On the side of the panel lies an opening, in which fresh air is drawn from outside of the home to give you that clean lively sense of an open window and reduce any “stuffy” feeling in a room.
Warms the Air Within Panel.
On top of improving a room's air quality, U.S. Heating's Preheat Ventilation panel has combined our knowledge of solar heating to heat the incoming air before it reaches the home to help maintain room temperature. This is done using a special dark coating to absorb sunlight, along with our patented v shaped design to help maximize the amount of daylight time.
Transfers Clean Warm Air Inside to the Home.
Fresh warm air is then introduced into the home to give a clean feeling, all while helping to maintain room temperature and reduce costs on heating bill.
A great tool that displays real time volatile minerals in your air, comes with different color backlights to show air quality, alarms and digital display.
Increases air temperature 35-50 ® F
The heating element in the panel is designed to be able to raise the temperature of the air passing through it, anywhere from 35-50 ® F and introduce it in room.
(Optional) On top of the master panel you can add up to 2 panels per master panel for larger coverage (Total coverage 1500 SQFT)
Mark Mounting area
Decide whether the panel will be on a south facing wall or roof. Mark off where pilot holes and mounting bolts will be placed to make sure everything is aligned before drilling and free from piping or electrical wires.
Drill pilot holes
Drill out your marked locations for mounting and duct work.
Place the panel on the surface and tighten down securely.
Seal and insulate
Seal off and insulate any holes drilled on the surface to prevent leaks and heat loss.
Connect thermostat and fan
Properly connect the leads from your fan to the thermostat and air quality monitor.

A Guild for Indoor Air Quality
Several sources of air pollution are in homes, schools, and offices. Some pollutants cause health problems such as sore eyes, burning in the nose and throat, headaches, or fatigue. Other pollutants cause or worsen allergies, respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), heart disease, cancer, and other serious long-term conditions.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs): are chemicals that evaporate at room temperature. VOCs are emitted by a wide array of products used in homes including paints and lacquers, paint strippers, varnishes, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, pesticides, building materials, and furnishings. VOCs are released from products into the home both during use and while stored.
More information on how to reduce VOCs can be found at http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/careforyourair.html
