Therma-HEXX‘s ThermaPAVER is a modular patio panel system that can convert temperatures to make your home and outdoor space more comfortable. This ‘smart’ system, made from 100% recyclable materials, increases the ability to use natural energy sources and depend less on the electrical grid. Inhabitat reports that it collects solar energy, absorbing heat in hot temperatures into a glycol solution. This fluid enables the pavers to heat a nearby water source or pool, while cooling the patio area. In the winter, this same glycol solution can be used to melt snowfall and warm the outside surface.
