Take Advantage of Modern Solar Heating Systems

Aug 17, 2007
It is no secret anymore that there is need for alternatives for traditional fossil energy sources. The costs for consumers are rising and with the increasing demand for energy the power plants can hardly keep up. A good alternative is the use of solar energy. Through the years and with extensive research it has become one of the most used and reliable alternative energy sources.

Solar energy is often thought of as converting solar energy into electricity. But it is not only used to convert into electricity, it is also used for heating. It can be used to heat your home and if you own one, your swimming pool.

To convert sun rays into heat you will need to invest in solar panels. The water that runs through these panels are heated and transported to your home heating systems. Now, older model solar panels used to be very inefficient. This has now changed for the better.

With the advancement of technology, the panels have now been efficient to collect and convert the sun's energy into heat. Today, modern heating systems can have enough energy to heat the water in your home or even the swimming pool.

There are many types of systems available in the market today. These different types of heating control systems commonly work on temperature differential strategies. They work by utilizing two sensors with one located near the panels to heat water and the other is located on or near the water return valve to the panel. To put it in simple terms, one of the sensors detects the temperature of the water that is going to leave the panel and the other sensor will measure the water temperature that is coming in the panel.

This process works by setting a predetermined temperature set by the owner that the sensors will wait for. When the water meets the temperature that you set, the sensors will enable the computer to turn the pump on and transfer the water to the location you need it to be. The other sensor located in the return valve detects the temperature of the running water when it is in a specific range of the panel system it automatically shuts off the pump.

One of the most important factors in any heating system is temperature control is. You need to be sure to buy a system that has been recommended by your friends who already use solar heating system. Of course you can use the internet as a source of information to get recommendations.

Although the benefits are clear there are people who do not wish to install the solar panels because they are unattractive and find that they can literally ruin your landscape. For this problem an answer has been found. You can heat your home using solar energy without solar panels. You can do this by using the concept known as gain. This is used to heat homes without the use of solar panels. It can be very efficient and can save you a lot of money by not buying expensive solar panels. This system works just like a car parked in the heat of the sun with the windows rolled up. When you enter the car, you will experience a blast of heat coming out of the car. The same concept is used in this heating system.

In conclusion, solar heating systems are one of the best and efficient ways to heat your home and the water in your home or pool. It can effectively reduce your utility bill by using these systems and can also reduce pollution caused by fossil fuels. With these modern heating systems you can be sure you can cut utility costs and at the same time reduce pollution.
