Solar power is becoming famous these days, especially its use in homes. Most people prefer solar power to run different home appliances. Why? Because it is earth friendly and economical, and there is nothing better than harnessing sun’s energy to light up one’s home. Solar power can cut 50 to 70 percent of external power consumption, so it is basically a cost effective option. There are many ways you can use this miraculous natural energy in your home, including through solar panels and solar heat systems that generate electricity (power).
Once integrated into the home, you can use solar water heating to heat the house as well as to generate hot water. The thermal energy can be absorbed from the sun through a collector mounted on a roof. This collector usually magnifies the heat and stores the hot water. This absorbed heat can be piped through radiators to deliver warmth and it can also be used to supply hot water. Solar water heating system not only allows you to save on electricity or utility bills, but also increase the value of your home.
