This type of solar panel by R-VOLT has been called Aerovoltaic and is unique due to its’ ability to not only generate electricity, but to also make use of the heat generated by solar panels and direct it to supplement your home heating.
If that was not enough, the R-VOLT Aerovoltaic system can also cool & purify the air that circulates in your home.
The panels themselves are “double sided” and generate electricity in the same way as a standard solar panel with a 250-watt output per panel. However, it also utilises a mechanical heat recovery system to deliver the heat generated by the panels into to the home for domestic use.
There are 2 ways to mount the panels on the roof. First is the “on-roof”, which is the usual method of mounting solar panels to a property.
Second is the “in-roof”. The In-roof option is visually great and can be almost “invisible” on a slate roof because the panels are black. Our view is the in-roof option looks much better even if it does involve more work and potential higher relative costs to fit.
Apologies, but we can’t offer a specific pricing selection here as the price will be based on what your requirements are and what work need to be done. However, the R-VOLT System is going to be comparatively costlier that an equivalent KW output “simple” Solar PV installation.
Taking all the features & benefits into consideration such as power, heating, cooling & filtration the value for money may very well be “more than acceptable” and something well worth considering for your home.
