Posted By: qeiplMaybe a calculation of the volume of air passing through the panel every second and the energy required to heat that volume from 10C to 20C would give you a feel for the plausibility of the concept.
Posted By: Chris P BaconSolarVenti say that a 3m² panel raises the incoming air temp. of 150m³/h by between 20C to 40C.
Posted By: Chris P BaconThanks Ed good to get practical feedback, most of the info available online about solar air panels is from the US and even though many mention having to clear snow drifts from in front of their panels in winter it is easy to forget that almost all are at latitudes much much further south than us.

Posted By: Chris P BaconIs there a good argument for spending the money on PV rather than a heat pump?
Posted By: qeiplalbeit by much less efficient means.
