All these installations were done and are located in Europe and are an example of the types of intallations that we plan to introduce in the United States. We are looking for business partners in the U.S. If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@soliclima.com

Untill recently, few were interested in renewables or in energetic efficiency. However, economical crisis, climate change and the predictable oil exhausting have made aware to everybody, from every single citizen to international organizations. Many goverments all around the world already offer subsidies to promote renewable energies.

Soliclima is one of the pioneer companies in Europe in offering this kind of productes. Some people come to us asking for advice about the best energetic system for their new home.

Solicima always discourage to use gasoil boilers, unless they are high performance boilers. But as the most efficient system we recommend to apply solar energy for the production of solar hot water and heating. As auxiliar system, there are two different alternatives:

- High performance gas or gasoil boiler or, much better, pellet boiler, that uses the most ecological and economical fuel. Pellets are some small balls formed from a material similar to sawdust, that was compacted. This material comes from forestal wastes.

When it is considered necessary also to refrigerate due to the climatology of the place, the best is to use a reversible heat pump, a high performance device that can also be used for heating and cooling. A heat pump can produce more energy that the one consume -electricity- due to that it moves the heat from a place to another, just as water pumps do. When we need to heat, it absorbs heat from exterior; when we want to cool, it expulses heat from inside to outside. A fridge, for example, it is a heat pump not reversible, that expulses the heat from the inside of the fridge to the exterior. That is why a the back of fridge is always hot.

Both systems can be combined with radiant floor as a distribution system for the heating and cooling. Radiant floor is a high performance and confort system widely used. It is based in the heating system of Ancient Rome. The had some ducts under the ground through which circulates some hot air heated with an oven.
