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.

Conserve More Power With These Green Energy Tips!

Cutting back on your electricity usage is probably a lot easier than you may have thought. With only a couple changes, and a few big changes, you will be able to reduce the carbon footprint you make, as well as save yourself come money. For some simple ideas, continue reading.

TIP! Simply cutting back on the amount of electricity you use on a daily basis can save a lot of energy. Unplug alliances when they are not being used.

When you’re coming up with a design for your outdoor lighting project, think about getting lamps that are solar powered. These inexpensive lamps require no external power source and can run entirely on solar power. This does more than just save energy. It also means you do not to have string up those outdoor lights.

Use a solar water heat system to lower water and heating costs. Using electricity or gas to heat water is not terribly efficient, but water heaters that use solar power maintain water temperatures using only the sun’s rays by way of solar panels. In the United States there are many tax deductions for energy efficient green products.

TIP! Do you own a farm? If you have a lot of land, energy companies will pay you for the right to set up a wind turbine on it. This installation will provide energy while taking little space and it will provide energy to you and perhaps your neighbors.

Start paying attention to your energy consumption. Unplug the charger for your iPod and XBox when they are not in use. Cell phone and mp3 chargers draw energy even if they aren’t charging anything.

If you use fuel oil to heat your home, ask a professional if you can use biodiesel. Some systems do not need any modifications in order to use biodiesels. Biodiesel burns cleaner and more efficiently than conventional petroleum, reducing your home’s environmental impact during the winter.

TIP! When doing laundry, try to use cold water. If you use warm or hot water in your washing machine, almost 90% of your energy use goes towards heating the water.

Be sure to cover your windows with drapes or blinds when not at home. These help your home remain cool and keep your energy bill down when you are not there. South facing windows will receive the most sun, and therefore heat. Window coverings such as roller shades, roman shades or dark curtains can be used on all windows.

Research different types of energy sources which may be available in your area. Compare the costs of various utilities, and take current or pending energy legislation into consideration. It can benefit you to use natural gas instead of electricity, for example.

TIP! If you’re not using an appliance, turn it off. When you leave the room you should think about what is not in use, like the lights, a television or your home theater.

Instead of using a clothes dryer, hang your clothes in the sun to dry in the summer months. As well as drying your clothes, the sun can also help your clothes smell nice. It is a fresher smell than you would get from the dryer. Additionally, you will have substantial savings on your utility bills every month that you dry clothes outside.

Turn these ideas into strategies you can use in your own home to create a greener environment. Energy bills will decrease and you will protect the environment, too! If you make incremental improvements, you will have one of the greenest homes in the country in no time!

Green Energy Information You Need To Know!

Have you thought about using green energy in the past, but don’t know where to begin? Do you think it costs a fortune to invest into green energy? No worries! The tips in this article will prove that using green energy can be simple and inexpensive.

TIP! Switch to solar heating systems for water to lower your cost of indoor water. Heating water with natural gas or electricity is not that efficient, but with solar energy, water takes the suns energy and keeps temperatures steady.

You can cut your energy consumption by a lot if you just cut back on the electricity you use. Unplug appliances when they’re not in use. Lights and televisions should be off when not in use. These simple tips can save you money, as well as saving electricity.

The government has grants available to those who are willing to invest in alternative renewable energies. Check with the local government and find out about any possible programs you may be eligible for. For example you may be able to qualify for a grant for the installation of solar or wind powered technologies.

Solar Panels

Solar panels can be installed on your roof allowing you to use solar energy. However, there are several things to consider before making any decisions. The number one to think about is the amount of sun your home gets. If your home does not get a lot of sunlight, then solar panels will be pretty useless.

TIP! There are government grants available to help people invest in green energy. Check with the local government and see what programs are available to you.

You can save electricity by unplugging chargers when they are not in use. Chargers for cell phones, mp3 players, laptops and other devices draw some power when they are plugged in, regardless of whether you are actually charging the device.

If you heat your home with fuel oil, inquire about switching over to biodiesel. Some current systems can use forms of biodiesel without the need for modifications. Biodiesel burns cleaner and more efficiently than conventional petroleum, reducing your home’s environmental impact during the winter.

TIP! Consult a technician for more information about switching to biodiesel heating if your home currently uses oil for heating. Some systems do not need any modifications in order to use biodiesels.

Solar water heaters are an inexpensive and efficient way to heat your home’s water. Using a solar water heater to warm your water with the energy of the sun works to save money and energy. Yet make sure that you also have a regular water heater as well just in case the sun decides to not come out for awhile.

Passive Solar Power

TIP! When weather is good, skip the energy-hogging dryer and dry your clothes on an outdoor clothesline. As well as drying your clothes, the sun can also help your clothes smell nice.

If you are interested in solar power learn about the difference between active and passive power. Passive solar power is power on demand and does not require cells for power storage. Active solar power has plenty of power storing ability so you will have energy ready anytime you may need it. Active systems are what you would normally think of when you think of solar–PV cells, mechanical parts, and storage devices. Passive solar power uses the heat of the sun to hold thermal energy within your home.

A good way to save on your electric bill is to switch to a laptop computer rather than using a desktop. You will find yourself shaving 75 percent off of the amount of electricity used for computer usage, especially if you go on the internet often. The laptop is also mobile, so you can take it with you everywhere.

TIP! Don’t run the dishwasher unless it’s full in order to save energy and money. Do not simply place a few dishes into it and run it.

Get as many pieces of mail electronically as possible. This will help you use less paper and help the planet. Not only will the business save on the cost of paper, but you will be saving energy from the production of that paper as well. An added bonus is that everyone benefits by the protection of our environment.

How can you modify your home and lifestyle to take full advantage of green energy? You now have the answers but it is up to you to take initiative and use the knowledge you gained from this article. Once you begin using this advice, the outcome will shock you.

Green Energy Advice That Can Make A Difference

Using green energy is very popular and there are great reasons for this. By using green energy, you can not only help save the environment, but also save money too! Learn how to immediately begin using green energy, simply by reading this article.

TIP! There are many government incentive programs you can take advantage of when it comes to green energy. Check with the local government and find out about any possible programs you may be eligible for.

To save money on your electric bills, simply try to minimize the electricity you use. If an appliance is not in use, unplug it. Turn off the TV and lights when they aren’t in use. This can save you money and it’s simple.

Shade your windows from excessive amounts of sunlight to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Use curtains or blinds as an alternative. Utilizing both of these methods will decrease you need for an air conditioner unit, since your home will not be as warm. You will save energy and money.

TIP! Close the curtains or blinds before you leave the house. These help your home remain cool and keep your energy bill down when you are not there.

If you currently use fuel oil for home heating, ask your local technician how you can switch over to biodiesel fuel. A lot of times this can be done with minimal modifications to your existing system. When you use biodiesel it burns a lot cleaner than conventional petroleum, which reduces the impact your home has on energy during the colder months of the year.

When you are preparing to install a solar energy system, ensure that the power storing batteries are located nearby to the cells. By doing so, energy loss through the cable is reduced. Additionally, it avoids problems with shading and capacity reduction.

TIP! One thing you might consider is heating your water with solar water heaters. If you live in an area where freezing temperatures are unlikely, you can purchase systems that circulate water through solar heating systems before pumping it inside for use.

Dress more warmly to be green and reduce energy costs. Sweaters of varying thickness can offer more warmth, from two to four degrees depending on its weight. Wearing slightly heavier clothes is not any less comfortable and can save you significant money.
