The solar wall-a product patented and manufactured by Conserval Engineering of Toronto, Canada is basically a wall of dark, perforated aluminum paneling attached to a south-facing wall of the mechanical penthouse perched atop the school. The panels, heated by the sun, intercept fresh air being drawn into a building's heating system, trapping it just long enough to preheat it. The panels warm outside air that is, say, -10 F in January to something much closer to "room temperature," relieving the demand on the high school's heating system. Stahl says when outdoor air temperature drops below about 55 F, a computerized system kicks in; above that level, the air is taken in through bypass vents that do not preheat the air. - more
