Solar Heat at Cabot Shores

These days, with extended daylight and sunny weather, the solar hot air heaters – Cansolair – are going all out.  They work  very simply and directly in the following way:

A couple of very small fans pull cold air out of the ground floor of the lodge and run it through 2 panels mounted on the outside of the lodge. Inside the panels, the cold air passes through a series of cans heated by the sun.  In the process, the air itself is heated. A second small fan blows hot air back into one of the guest rooms and into the Bistro kitchen – and voila!

The best thing about it?  Cansolair is made from recycled material – beer and pop cans. Can’t beat that!

    The units were purchased and installed through Mi’kmaq Energy, owned by Karlena Johnson Sylliboy. Karlena and team did a good job and we’re most grateful. Now all we need is Sun in December and January, as well as the warmer months like March!
