World’s first patented and combined solar heater
and heat extractor

Adds heating capacity
Easy to retrofit
Suited for energy efficient buildings
When providing ventilation, particularly of cool air, it's important
to ensure the air is clean. We recommend the use
of filters to remove at dust and insects from air that may be
drawn from underneath the house. If
you are concerned about toxins (for instance, from termite
treatments) you can add additional filtration, or pull cool air
into the house from
another source, such as a shaded outdoor area. You
could also employ an air/heat exchange box. One reason the Sun
Lizard uses a closed loop system for heating is in order to avoid
introducing polluted air such as wood smoke from outside. If
the Sun Lizard is used as a pre-heater, we recommend the
use of filtration.
The Sun Lizard moderates temperature extremes inside your building.
In winter, the Sun Lizard will increase the temperature inside
your building by up to 4°C to 6°C, reducing or even
eliminating the need for additional heating on many days. It
also can take the sting out of summer through extracting
heat from the building and reducing the inside temperature
by up to 10°C.
Heat dispersion to multiple rooms
The Sun Lizard can transfer heat from one room to multiple
rooms at a time by taking warm air suspended under the ceiling,
reheating it in the solar heat collectors and introducing the
heated air to other areas of the building. The Sun Lizard can
provide heating for several rooms that have a common duct. The
Sun Lizard Air Shifter allows transfer of heat to other parts
of the building.
Free ventilation and heat extraction
Through the solar powered fan box, the Sun Lizard can actively
provide ventilation and heat extraction throughout the building.
This will be enhanced by placing filtered cooling vents that
access sources of cool air to bring into the building.
Controlled air quality
As in all heating and cooling systems, it is important when providing
ventilation and cool air that you ensure the air is clean.
In heating mode, the Sun Lizard takes air, not from the ceiling
cavity, but from the room itself to create a closed loop system
so that the air quality within the building is maintained. This
avoids the introduction of polluted air such as wood smoke and
other pollutants from outside into your home when you are not
aware of the problem. If the Sun Lizard is used as a pre-heater,
we recommend the use of some form of filtration.
In cooling mode, the air taken from the room via Sun Lizard
is expelled out into the atmosphere. If the recommended filtered
cooling kits are used, filters are in place to clean the incoming
cool air before it enters the building.
Drawing cool air from subfloor spaces may raise other concerns
such as fumes from termite treatments or other similar activities.
Additional filters can be obtained to deal with most such concerns,
and you should ask the suppliers of the treatments for advice. Alternatively,
source the cool air through the use of an air/heat exchange box,
which can further control the air quality. These air/heat exchange
boxes do not allow the introduction of contaminated air, but
passes the clean air from a safe location, through a cooler but
possible dirty area inside a sealed box or duct.
Enjoy big energy savings
The Sun Lizard can reduce your energy consumption for heating
and cooling dramatically if integrated into your home
Free from running costs
There are no running costs for the Sun
Lizard as it is completely
There are no greenhouse gas emissions from the Sun Lizard during
its working life.
Free from harmful or artificial heating and cooling
No artificial chemicals or heating and cooling elements are used
in generating the heat from the Sun Lizard. No gas fumes
or wood smoke is produced to potentially harm your health.
The Sun Lizard turns on automatically when the sun is bright
enough to provide heating or cooling. It switches itself
off when there is no sun for heating. In summer, there
is an optional 12 volt backup to keep the fans running after
sunset to continue cooling your building.
Peace of mind warranty
The Sun Lizard Solar Climate Control Systems comes with a warranty
- 25 years on solar collector
- 10 years on PV panel
- 2 years on electronics
The New Inventors' Choice
We won our episode of the New
World’s first patented solar heater and heat extractor
The Sun Lizard is
a patented technology which is a world first in combining a solar
heat collector with a heat extraction function.
Australian made, owned and designed.
The Sun Lizard is
an Australian owned product. It is designed, developed
and manufactured in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. See our company profile for more information.
New modern design
Where there is no roof cavity the components can lie flat on
the roof under a weatherproof cover to protect the components
from the elements.
This new Sun Lizard design has a low slimline profile where the
air flow box and fan box is detached from the solar heat collector.
This enables you to hide these components inside the roof cavity
for a more discrete look.
The new fan box is designed with a heavily suspended foam shell
wrapping the fans in a tight cocoon to provide better sound insulation
so that your peaceful environment is undisturbed.
More heating capacity
The new dual collector system doubles the heating capacity of
the previous models. You can generate more heat for areas up
to 150 sqm.
The air flow box, fan box and PV panel are moveable and semi-attached
to the solar heat collector to provide more flexibility in
its design. This allows you to locate the Sun
Lizard to suit
The Sun Lizard Climate Control Systems can be combined with
other products in our range to provide a more complete climate
control solution. Click here for more information on our packages.

Ideally suited for energy efficient buildings
The Sun Lizard uses
your home as a heat or cool store. The
more energy efficient the building, the more effective the Sun
Lizard will be. Most new homes are ideal for the Sun
