CATSKILL RESIDENT USING RECYCLED CANS TO LOWER HEATING
When Bill Hobbs installed a Cansolair Solar Air Furnace
on his Catskill N.Y. Home in September 2008, the average cost of a gallon
of heating oil was over four dollars a gallon. As the price of heating
oil continues to climb, and is currently $3.49 per gallon, Bill saw his
2,000 dollar investment in the unit already pay for itself.
Bill Hobbs had a savings of 427 gallons his first heating
season with the Cansolair unit and 422 gallons this past season.
These savings represent a 1/3 of his average heating oil consumption.
As oil prices continue to climb, home and business owners
looking for simple inexpensive ways to reduce energy costs are using solar
air heating as an option that requires no fuel, labor or maintenance.
The Cansolair Solar Heater is a solar air furnace made
from recycled aluminum cans that installs with little changes to the existing
home or building.

Home available on request.

SOLAR ENERGY SOCIETY
I installed a Cansolair Solar Max in the large garage bay of my
business, where I letter vehicles, trucks, trailers and produce large signs.
Since having the Solar max in operation, I have not had to use supplemental
heat to keep the room warm while I work. I can tell by the
performance so far, I will save a lot of money, and will not worry
very time I open and close the garage door. I was very happy with
Upstate Solar and the Cansolair Solar Max Air Furnace

I have been using the Cansolair Solar Max on my barn/shop and can say
that I am more than happy with the heater. Some days I have had to
turn it down to keep the building comfortable. I do not expect to
pay a lot of money for heat this season.
