In dwellings with mechanical ventilation systems the fresh air can easily be preheated by means of simple solar air systems. These can be an integral part of the building facade or roof and the costs are expected to be low. By means of computer experiments a large number of systems were evaluated. It was found that these systems can provide interesting energy gains providing the system is well dimensioned and has a storage. For this massive airducts are more effective than a massive absorber.
