Actually and in the near future, due to the necessity of refrigeration, the need of thermal energy dissipation systems will be increased. One of the best element, is the cooling tower, but it has one mean inconvenient, what is the use of a fan. The use of the fan has the following misfortunes: waste of energy, noise, vibration and dissemination of Legionella, if it is present. To overcome these misfortunes, we present a energetic solution, highly efficiently, The Solar Roof of Enercom, because the draught of the air, is by natural driving, this element has the following advantages: No electric energy wasted, no noise, no vibration and dramatic reduction of Legionella dissemination in the air. Integrated in an air conditioning system, the solar roof works in different ways according to the needs of the conditioned building. In summer, the solar roof is used to reduce the temperature of the service water that acts as heat drain of refrigerant condensers and producing hot water to household use, making the thermal conditioning economically profitable. In winter, solar energy is collected by the solar roof to assist the conditioning system in heating the building and producing domestic hot water to household use.
