At present, the problem of energy-saving construction remains extremely relevant. The use of alternative energy sources for heat supply of buildings and structures is one of the ways to solve the problem of rational use of fuel and energy resources.

This article considers effective methods of using solar energy with the help of thermosyphon solar collectors integrated into the external enclosing structures of a modular house.

The research results showed that for efficient operation of the thermosyphon collector the area of ventilation openings should be within 0,005… 0,06 m2.
