Has anyone combined a Trombe wall with a heat recovery unit?
I want to extend my farmhouse using passive heating and cooling and also orientating it for optimal solar hot water and electricity generation.
I’ve wanted to include a Trombe wall. The standard design uses adjustable vents to either provide heated air or induce cooler air.
It just occured to me that a more modern approach might be to use a heat recovery unit to capture the generated heat.
Do you know this would be preferable? Has it already been done?
