Heating your home or business with solar power is a guaranteed way to reduce your energy costs and your environmental impact.
There are a few different methods to heat with solar energy, and our experienced team at Solar Dad & Sons can help you determine the best solution for your property.
Radiant Solar Heating
Radiant solar heating is an efficient way to heat your home or business using clean, renewable energy. In its most popular application, radiant solar heating is delivered by pumping solar-heated water (or a mixture of hot water and propylene glycol) through tubes that run underneath the floor. The home heats from the floor up, and radiant floor heating doesn’t require very high temperatures (relatively) to effectively heat the home, making it a logical “next step” for homes with solar hot water systems.
Baseboard Solar Heating
Additionally, solar heating can be utilized with baseboard heaters, but most require a hotter temperature than most solar hot water can provide. New types of more energy efficient baseboard heaters are available that can function well with relatively lower levels of heat, making solar hot water a good option.
