More heat for faster drying

Cogen’Air Thermovoltaic panels provide an essential source of heat in spring and autumn. At the slightest ray of sunshine, the panels rise in temperature very quickly. Cogen’Air works even during cloudy weather.

Cogen’Air, a particularly cost-effective drying technique

All drying technologies (furnaces, wood chip boilers, dehumidifiers) need fuel and / or electricity. Cogen’Air produces free heat and free electricity. Cogen’Air is a highly profitable technology.
In other words, if Cogen’Air is more profitable than other drying methods, it is because it supplies excess power (revenue from energy resale) on top of eliminating the thermal costs (fuel purchasing, be it fossil or natural). As a result, the payback time is shorter.
