Gulf Stream Solar Kits for a Large Family

Price : Click the button below for the latest price/deals.
The Solar Collector The solar collector is made up of several vacuum insulated glass tubes that absorb the sun's rays. It contains a double tube design with intricate layers of borosilicate glass, aluminum, solar filament, and copper pipes. The unit works in such a way that the glass allows light in, connecting with the solar filament yet, the insulation prevents the heat/energy (just recently captured) from being released. Specifically, it absorbs at a rate of 93% but it has a heat loss of less than 6%. The glass tubes are sealed creating a smooth, nearly seamless casing. Borosilicate glass was selected not only due to its strength but also the ability to withstand warping (in either high or low temperatures). The solar collector frame is made of sturdy anodized aluminum and specifically designed to match and hold the 15, 20 or 30 tube collector units. The adjustable frame can be mounted anywhere from a 23 degree angle to a 46 degree angle. Depending on your solar zone and which way the back of your home is situated, the angle of your solar collector may be an important factor in obtaining the optimal amount of light. Back-Up Heater by Gulf Stream A back-up heater makes sure you have hot water instantly. This 9kw back-up heater has the most accurate wattage to match the needs of a medium family. What is most unique about this particular back-up unit is that it is flow sensitive.

Do Your Part By Checking Out These Green Energy Tips!

Many people don’t know how to start living the greener life they desire. There are many ways to help the environment using green energy. This article has great tips to help you use green energy now.

TIP! Think about getting solar powered lamps for outdoor lighting. These lamps aren’t costly and do not need additional power sources other than direct sun exposure.

Consider installing solar powered lamps for outdoor lighting. Not only are these lamps cheap, but they only need power from the sun. This will save significant energy. It will also mean you can avoid installing underground wiring.

Solar Energy

TIP! When it’s hot outside, wear clothing made of natural materials rather than running the air conditioner. Fabrics like cotton naturally draw moisture away from the skin, allowing it to stay cooler.

Putting in solar panels in your home for solar energy is easy. It is important, however, that you do your homework before making the leap. A big consideration is how much sunlight does your home typically receive? You can’t take as much advantage of solar energy if your house gets a lot of shade rather than sun.

Make your home more energy efficient by unplugging your unused electronic devices. Mp3, cell phone, laptop, and various other device chargers draw power when they’re plugged in, no matter if it’s charging or not.

TIP! Keep drapes drawn when you are not home. This simple act blocks the sun from entering and heating your house in the summer, while in the winter, it keeps the heat from escaping through drafty windows.

If you use fuel oil to heat your home, speak with a technician to see if it’s possible to change to bio-diesel. Many heating systems can be switched over to run on biodiesel without needing extra modifications or parts. Biodiesel burns much cleaner, is more efficient than petroleum, and will lessen the impact your home has on the environment in wintertime.

Check out all the different resources your community has available for energy. Compare the costs of operating your home using several of these utilities, making sure to take into consideration any legislation with regard to energy costs that has recently been passed. Switching from electricity to gas, or from your city water supply to a well, may save you money.

TIP! You can save on your energy bill by dressing warmly. Wearing a sweater can make you feel two to four degrees warmer, depending on the thickness of the sweater.

Only using the dishwasher when it is full will save you money and energy. Don’t run it with only two or three dishes inside. Dishwashers can usually hold many dishes. Set up the plates so that you fill it up as much as possible.

Electric Heaters

TIP! Take advantage of any federal or local rebates that you may be entitled to receive. There are times when your utility company can offer discounts and rebates for your upgrade costs.

If you love green energy and green living, consider using electric heaters less during the winter months. Using a fireplace and wearing warm clothing are good, energy-saving alternatives to using electric heaters. This is good for your health as well as your electric bill. Breathing cooler air at night helps keep your respiratory system healthy; you’ll avoid drying out your airways.

One of the best ways to go green and cut energy costs is by dressing more warmly. You can wear a heavy sweater instead of a light one to give yourself more warmth when you’re at home. It’s not necessary to wear so little at home, so out on a sweatshirt and save some cash!

TIP! Perhaps you are intimidated by making an large, green energy investment. Seeking the input of a professional, such as a heating/cooling specialist or plumber can educate you on options.

Take the time to learn about active, and passive solar power. Active power is power that is stored to be used for a later time, while passive power doesn’t require power storage cells. In order to use active power, you will need to install a few things, including solar cells, mechanical systems, and most importantly, solar panels. Passive solar power is simply making use of the sun to keep thermal energy in your walls so you can heat your home.

Pay attention to federal and local rebates associated with renewable energy for your house. In a few cases, local utility companies tend to offer rebates for expenses associated to upgrades. Other companies may offer tax deductions from your local or federal government. Rebates and credits will help to offset the cost of implementing green energy technology you want to add to your home.

Green Energy

As stated above, the demand for green energy is consistently growing as cheap oil is becoming obsolete. With the right information, it’s easy to use green energy daily. Utilize advice found in this article, and you can enjoy a greener life today!

These Green Energy Tips Will Save You Money!

Many people are interested in living green, but aren’t sure how to do so. There are many green energy technologies available to help save energy and money. The following article will give you advice on how you can begin to use green energy right away.

TIP! When you’re coming up with a design for your outdoor lighting project, think about getting lamps that are solar powered. These lamps aren’t costly and do not need additional power sources other than direct sun exposure.

Consider installing solar powered lamps for outdoor lighting. These lamps require now power source, except the sun, and are generally inexpensive. This not only saves energy. Also, it will no longer be necessary to install wired outdoor lights.

The government has grants available to those who are willing to invest in alternative renewable energies. Ask at your local municipality office to research what types of programs might be available to you. It may be possible for you to get wind or solar installation for free, or you may be able to get a deductions on your taxes.

TIP! Instead of blasting the air conditioner to keep cool in summer, wear clothes made from naturally cooling fabrics. Cotton and other natural fibers, draw the moisture away from your skin, and allow you to stay cooler.

Install solar panels and reap the benefits easily. It is important, however, that you do your homework before making the leap. Think about the amount of sunlight that hits your house on an average day. If the area is shady, or you are in a region that doesn’t receive much sunshine, then you won’t be gaining much power.

Speak to a technician to find out if your fuel oiled heating can be changed to an alternative fuel, such as biodiesel. You might even find that you can switch your system to partial biodiesel without having to purchase parts or hire a contractor to perform modifications. Biodiesel will burn cleaner than petroleum, which helps to protect the environment.

TIP! You will find that it’s easy to get solar panels and they’re a great way to get energy for your home. Consider some things before you do this, as you will benefit from the thought process.

Solar power can heat water for a low cost. Purchase a hot water system that uses solar energy. You can select from direct circulation systems or indirect varieties. The indirect system is best if you don’t want to worry about your pipes freezing in the winter.

You can get rid of your old, tank style water heater and switch it out with a new, greener, tankless one. Tankless versions still need electricity or gas to heat water, but they are more effective in heating solely the water necessary instead of a huge tank of water constantly. You can purchase tankless water heaters that are small enough to heat one faucet, or large enough to heat your entire house.

Green Energy

The introduction to this article emphasized the fact that as the world reaches peak oil, green energy is going to become more and more important to our survival as a species. With the correct information, it is a lot easier to start incorporating green energy options into your life. Use the advice you found in this guide, and you could have a greener life.

Green Energy Tips That Will Cut Down Your Power Bills

Taking advantage of solar, wind and hydroelectric power not only preserves the environment for our grandchildren, but saves you money right now. If you are looking for information on how to use green energy technology at home, continue on for some helpful tips that will show you how to go about accomplishing this.

TIP! When designing outdoor lighting for your patio or garden path, consider solar-powered lamps. They are inexpensive and don’t require electricity.

If you use fuel oil to heat your home, ask a professional if you can use biodiesel. Many systems allow a switch to biodiesel or biofuel with slight modifications. Biodiesel is great because it is more efficient and produces less pollution that standard oil, which will reduce your carbon footprint.

Instead of using the dryer in the summertime, hang clothes outside in the warm sunshine. Using the sun can make clothes smell a lot better. They will smell better than anything coming out of a dryer. Additionally, you will end up saving lots of money each month on utility bills.

TIP! Instead of using A/C in the summer, wear natural fabrics. Natural materials like cotton repel moisture from your skin and allow it to stay cool.

Save money and energy by only running your dishwasher with a full load of dishes. Don’t run it when there are a low number of dishes present. You might be surprised by how much you can actually fit in the dishwasher. By properly loading a dishwasher you will ensure that the maximum amount of dishes can be washed using the least amount of energy.

When you calculate the solar panel needs of your home, figure out the hours of sun you get in the winter. Using this metric means you will meet your energy needs in the winter, while greatly exceeding them in the summer. If you’re using a net-usage plan, in the summer you’ll get cash back from your utility provider.

Active Power

Learn about the differences between passive and active solar power. Active power is power that is stored to be used for a later time, while passive power doesn’t require power storage cells. Active power needs solar panels installed, cells, and mechanical systems. While passive simply uses the sun in storing thermal energy in your walls in order to heat your house.
