Mat-Conserved Energy

The conceptual mat is made up of two sides with the positive used in the summer and the negative used in the winter. Both excess heat from people and air absorbed by the positive mat can be converted into electrical energy and then stored in its own so that getting the effect of refrigeration, and to the winter, the electrical energy of the mat collected in the summer will be automatically transformed to the thermal energy and then release to the other side of the mat so as to achieve the regulation of the indoor temperature. It's designed to replace the air-conditioning and heating making use of energy ignored to save more natural resources.
