The SunMate™ Solar Air Heating Collector is the ideal choice for homeowners that want an environmentally friendly, low-cost air heating option. The SunMate™ pulls cool air from your home, channels it through the absorber plate where it’s warmed by energy from the sun, then circulates it back into your home. A built-in thermostat automatically turns on the fan when the absorber plate reaches 110° F and shuts the fan off when the plate reaches 90°F. The SunMate has been tested by an accredited laboratory to be one of the most efficient, glazed, solar hot air panel certified by the SRCC (Solar Rating and Certification Corporation).
What sets the SunMate™ apart from other solar panels is the design. One-piece construction produces a streamlined appearance that doesn’t detract from your home’s appearance. Heavy-duty, stainless steel and aluminum components provide quality construction that assures long life and virtually no maintenance.
The SunMate™ by Environmental Solar System is efficient and affordable. A single panel heats up to 750 square feet. Double-sealed solar glass eliminates air infiltration and water leaks. Polyisocyanurate insulation results in extremely low heat loss and an 8.5 Watt fan operates for just pennies per day. You can run the SunMate completely without AC power by connecting the fan to a 20 Watt solar module!
The SunMate™ is installed vertically and mounted on the side of your home or building. The design accommodates 2” x 4” or 2” x 6” construction. Parallel installation allows you to integrate multiple panels for larger heating areas. SunMate now uses TiNOX, a highly selective absorber coating. A selective coating is the heart of all solar thermal collectors. TiNOX has high absorption (95%) and low emissivity (5%). TiNOX can convert 90% of all solar radiation into heat. TiNOX is also an environmentally friendly coating.

In the fan tube you will find a blue wire nut. Remove that wire nut and separate the wires (two wires). The fan tube has a hole where you can pass the thermostat wire through to the inside of the tube. Connect the red and the white wire of the thermostat to those two wires and put the wire nuts back onto the wires. Note there is another wire nut provide in the kit. Using the same bay between the studs run the wire up the wall. Remove the front cover off the thermostat and you will see two terminals on the top of the thermostat that are marked W and RH. Connect the red and the white thermostat wires to those terminals. (Note) Poke a hole approximately 5 feet up the wall and run a snake down the wall; then attach the thermostat wire to the snake and pull the thermostat wire up the wall.

When considering a solar panel, I strongly recommend evaluating how the sun hits your house in the winter months, when you will need your solar panel to work the most, not in the summer months, because I have found it to be very different. The southe
