AKVAir Solar - Accumulator Tank
This tank combines the heat produced by your conventional boiler with the heat produced by your solar panels or heat pump as well as an emursion switch if requested.

The different methods heat one tank of water which will be consistantly hot and remains in the tank, storing the heat. The hot water that comes out of your taps has travelled through a coil that goes through the tank. Therefore the heat that is in the tank is not lost as the large volume of water stores the heat along with a well insulated tank.

We are passionate about property and construction. We have built this website to provide as much information as possible to people about construction and buildings both residential and commercial. Some of the issues discussed will include:

  • Investment in property
  • Maintaining property values through maintenance
  • Property improvements
  • Environmental issues
  • Design
  • Regulatory requirements for property, mainly in Ireland
  • Historical properties and issues etc.

Every day we meet people with a limited knowledge of property but with a hunger to learn about building or property issues. This can be due to a leaking roof, building of their first home, or more extensive works for small and large residential or commercial development.

But we also want to highlight any issues relevant in the property world, not just in Ireland. To do this we invite everyone to take part in this site, asking questions, highlighting issues and providing information that you have found interesting and relevant.

We can be contacted at mail@propertyfix.net

Thanks and enjoy the site!
