Can I combine DualSun hybrid panels with an aerovoltaic heating system?
While it may not be easy, it is perfectly feasible to install a DualSun system and an aerovoltaic system side by side:
- the thermal output of the DualSun panels would be used to heat domestic hot water
- the thermal output of the aerovoltaic panels would be used for shoulder season home heating
- all the electricity produced by the two types of panels could be either consumed in the house or injected into the network and sold to EDF for a feed-in tariff.
Note however that DualSun panels and the aerovoltaic panels will not have exactly the same dimensions, which may cause a small visual offset on the roof: not technically problematic, but not ideal in terms of aesthetics. Some people pay particular attention to the question of aesthetics.
