  • running: its fan is actuated by the solar panel, so it costs nothing to run
  • energy output: 1m2 can deliver about 7MJ (2kWh) of heat per day, that would cost about $0.7 if produced with an electric heater
  • performance: during sunny days it can raise the temperature of the air by about 25 degrees Celsius
  • payback is about one year compared to electric heaters, less than 2 years compared to LPG heaters, or about 2 years compared to natural gas heaters
