This case study focuses on the City of Toronto Vehicle Maintenance Garage and their switch to a solar thermal air heating system.
The garage hosts the town’s garbage trucks and other work vehicles, so there was a need to both ensure airflow, and because of the cold temperatures of Toronto, ensure reliable heat. So the town installed three solar heated fans that provide the interior of the garage with a steady stream of fresh air that has been heated by the sun.
