Most people are familiar with traditional solar photovoltaic (PV) power, used in the standard solar panels you see on many homes; which is great for generating electrical energy. What many people don’t know about is true solar thermal, which is a powerhouse leader for HVAC solutions as it does more than just create electrical energy.
You see, rather than using the sun for generating electrical power to then heat your water we use the radiant UltraViolet energy of the sun itself to heat the water more directly – making true Solar Thermal 94% efficient vs. Solar PV which is typically only 20% efficient – even on cloudy days!
This technology is great for more than just heating your pool though! Solar thermal is a great option for cooling your home, melting snow on your driveways and walks, and much more.
SIMPLE HOT WATER FOR ROUTINE RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL USES
Homes and businesses alike spend a lot of money heating water for ordinary uses like showers, dish washing, and general cleaning chores. The traditional water heater keeps water hot 24 hours a day in case we need it! That’s a very expensive to have hot water on standby. Solar thermal technology keeps water hot at a fraction of the cost using the power of the sun, providing you with an immediate and significant savings.
SOLAR THERMAL HEATS YOUR POOL AND HOT TUB
It can be quite expensive to heat your swimming pool using conventional means. Thanks to solar thermal technology, the evacuated solar tubes provide far more efficient heating options for your pool and hot tub as compared to the PV panels most solar projects employ.
RADIANT FLOOR HEATING USING SOLAR THERMAL
Warm floors are becoming the standard in newer construction and remodels thanks to radiant floor heating systems. There is a much more efficient way of heating the water for this application with true solar thermal technology.
NO MORE FROZEN DRIVEWAYS, WALKS, OR PATIOS WITH SOLAR THERMAL
Shoveling snow and removing ice from driveways, walks, and patios become a thing of the past with solar thermal heating systems installed directly into the concrete. This process keeps these surfaces just warm enough to not allow for buildup of ice and snow. Using the 94% efficient solar thermal evacuated tubes ensures you’ll be ice and snow free all winter long!
We would love the opportunity to speak with you about how putting our solutions to work for you can help cut your energy costs by using the power of the sun!
