SMART FACADE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE
Although it is a good idea to benefit from underground heat, it cannot be applied very often due to the hygiene problem experienced in normal applications (dirt, bacteria etc. caused by condensation in the pipes) and the difficulty in integrating the air taken into the building with the existing ventilation system. SMART FACADE can receive underground air to the exhaust section of the «air channel», therefore, it does not experience any hygiene problems and is easily applied.
Although solar panels are the most promising technology in terms of building energy saving, efficiency decreases due to overheating of the back sides of the panels in the summer and the building cooling energy load increases. The air circulation inside the SMART FACADE panels solves this problem of heat and increases the efficiency of the photovoltaic panels by 10-15%.
Evaporative cooling is one of the cheapest cooling methods. It can not apply easily in buildings due to hygiene problems and lack of integration with existing ventilation. One of the most interesting features of SMART FACADE is that it can benefit from evaporative cooling without any problem. Moreover, both the evaporative cooling of the outside air and the evaporative cooling of the exhaust air can be applied in high efficiency.
