An efficient low-carbon system is proposed to meet the heating and cooling demands of rural houses in cold regions. Mini-channel solar panels incorporating a novel multiple-throughout-flowing loop are used for heat collection, whilst a vapour injecti...

In order for a solar heating system to provide heat immediately after sunrise, a fast response is needed to the heat demand of a serviced space. The majority of existing solar heating systems have a slow response time due to the large volume of water...
