About Digital Solar Heat
Beginning in 2003, while designing energy efficient homes, it was realized that it was possible to heat a home, office or commercial buildings using solar heat.
In 2005, after overcoming many design challenges, installations began. In 2010 design work began on a cold weather, version targeted at Canadian winters.
If enough solar panels were engineered to offset significant thermal losses in winter, then summer solar energy would tend to over-generate thermal energy. Normally this heat energy would be vented. However, storing and reusing the heat later made real economic sense. This solution required a mass-storage strategy. Patented 2010, 2016
What was required was a huge yet low cost way of storing the surplus heat energy for use later. To store this amount of heat energy typically requires an large area. A system was devised whereby heat could be stored in an insulated area beneath the building. This energy can then be extracted on demand, and used during dark. times.
Storing Summer Heat for use in Winter = Inter-seasonal Storage

DSH Hydronic heating is quiet, and heat tends to stratify in the key areas you occupy. In addition you are able to claw back space required for furnaces and ducts.
