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. In other words, if hot water from the solar collectors isn't available (i.e. a dreary day), the back-up will heat only what you use not the entire tank. This flow sensing back-up heater is the latest development in solar technology, but most importantly one that saves you more money. Control Panel If the circulating pump is the heart of the system then, the control panel is the brain . It regulates the temperature sensors and activates the circulating pump to go on. This small electrical unit can be mounted on the wall and used to control the system as the homeowner dictates. ....read more

Looking For Information About Green Energy? Start Here!

The variety of green energy options are staggering, yet easily done in a cost-effective way. The information gathered here will get you started on your journey toward using green energy and reaping its many benefits.

TIP! You can reduce your energy usage by just reducing your electricity usage. Unplug appliances when they’re not in use.

If you’re designing any kind of outdoor lighting, you may want to think about installing solar-powered lamps. Not only are these lamps cheap, but they only need power from the sun. This not only reduces energy costs, Also, it will no longer be necessary to install wired outdoor lights.

You might be able to get a government grant to finance your green energy installation. Contact your local government for more information of programs near you. There might be programs in your area that can allow you to install solar or wind energy solutions for free or with taxable deductions if you qualify for them.

TIP! When drawing up the landscaping plans for a garden path or patio, incorporate solar-powered lamps. Not only are they a reasonable purchase price, but they do not require electricity to run.

Save electricity while becoming a more conscientious energy consumer by unplugging the chargers for all your electronic gadgets when they aren’t in use. Mp3, cell phone, laptop, and various other device chargers draw power when they’re plugged in, no matter if it’s charging or not.

Do you currently own a farm? Companies are actually looking for space to put wind turbines in, and a small part of your property can be used as one of those spots. This will provide you with free energy with only a small space investment.

TIP! One way to conserve energy is to make sure your windows aren’t exposed to direct sunlight. Adding some window coverings can also help.

Use window treatments to shade the inside of your home when you aren’t home. These help your home remain cool and keep your energy bill down when you are not there. Typically, windows that face south are positioned so that they receive the most sun. Dark curtains, roller or roman shades can cover windows well.

Purchase a solar water heater to warm up your water. 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. Having a conventional heater as a back up if you expect a surge in hot water use can be wise.

TIP! When it’s hot outside, wear clothing made of natural materials rather than running the air conditioner. Cotton and other fabrics draw sweat from the skin and make you cool.

Find out what energy options your community has available. Be sure to look at the legislation and incentives available for using green utilities. Switching from electricity to gas, or from your city water supply to a well, may save you money.

Try drying your laundry outside in the sun whenever possible, rather than using a dryer. The sun can dry clothes quickly without using any power, with the added benefit of making your clothes smell extra-fresh. They’ll be smelling much fresher than if they were just dried in a dryer. Also, your utility bills will be greatly decreased.

Green Energy

As this article has shown there are many ways to incorporate green energy into your life. Using green energy will make you feel better and begin providing benefits quickly.

Top Tips To Start Getting The Most From Green Energy

We have come to realize how important it is to take better care of our environment. There are not many better ways to have a positive impact on the environment, while saving money, than making green energy choices. You will be introduced to some of the ways that you can make green energy work in your home today.

TIP! Wear natural fabrics instead of running your air conditioner during summer months. Natural fabrics, such as cotton, allow skin to remain cool by drawing moisture away from skin.

The are several simple techniques to conserve energy. Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Turn off your TV and lights once you leave a room. This simple suggestion helps cut your electricity bills.

Instead of turning on the air conditioner, wear fabrics made of natural materials. Cotton and other fabrics draw sweat from the skin and make you cool. You can also try wearing lighter colors, they help you feel cooler, lessening your need for artificial cold air.

Renewable Energy

Take advantage of government grants if you plan to invest in renewable energy sources. Talk to your local government and figure out what programs are in the area. Depending on your local energy programs, you could end up getting a renewable energy system set up for your home for free.

TIP! When away from home, cover the windows. This helps to keep your house at a cooler temperature and lower the amount of energy used.

Do you have 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. You and the neighbors can benefit from this free installation and energy which won’t take up much space.

Keep drapes drawn when you are not home. This keeps your home cooler naturally, reducing the strain on your air conditioner and saving energy. Usually the windows that face south tend to get more sun exposure. Think about covering all of your windows with different types of shades and curtains.

TIP! Purchase a solar water heater to warm up your water. If you live in a place with normally warm temperatures, try installing a system that uses a solar heater.

Purchase a solar water heater to warm up your water. If you happen to live in a climate where freezing water isn’t going to affect you then you might want to invest into a system that circulates water through your solar heater before it is pumped into your home. Though you can use this system, it’s best to have a regular water heater for backup purposes, just in case there is a day with little sunlight or more water usage than normal.

Do not use your dishwasher unless it contains a full load of dishes. The same amounts of water and energy are used every time. Using the air-dry setting will save energy when you run the dishwasher.

Active Solar Power

Learn the difference between passive and active solar power. Passive solar power doesn’t need expensive cells in order to store power, although active is stored for later use. Active solar power requires solar panels, cells, and mechanical systems. Passive solar power is more basic and simply uses your home in its existing state as heat storage.

You can easily help the environment and have an energy efficient home by using these green energy tips. The money you’ll save is an added plus.

Helpful Green Energy Technology Advice For Everyone!

You may be amazed when you learn about the many ways green energy can be used in the home, ones that are easy to implement and don’t cost a fortune. The tips in this article will give you the information necessary to implement a green energy system in your home or business.

TIP! Simply cutting back on the amount of electricity you use on a daily basis can save a lot of energy. If an appliance is not in use, unplug it.

A simple way to save energy is to close the curtains. Shading the windows with curtains and blinds will keep out the sun in summer and keep the heat from escaping in winter. Doing these things will let you use less air conditioning in the summer. You will save energy and money.

During the heat of summer, wear natural-fiber fabrics instead of turning on the air conditioner. By wearing natural fabrics, such as cotton, you will keep moisture away from your skin and help it stay cooler. Wear light colors; dark colors tend to make you feel warm and you will be likelier to turn on the air conditioner.

TIP! Think about getting solar powered lamps for outdoor lighting. Solar-powered lamps are usually inexpensive, and they don’t need any power source besides the sun.

Do you have 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. You could take advantage of the energy offered and the space requirements are minimal.

Speak to a technician to find out if your fuel oiled heating can be changed to an alternative fuel, such as biodiesel. There are many systems that can switch to biodiesel with needing significant modification. Biodiesel runs more efficiently, burns more clean, and costs you less during the winter.

TIP! Clean filters or replace them to ensure your furnace is appropriating at prime efficiency. Filters can also be installed in every warm-air register.

Turn off electrical items whenever you aren’t using them. Any rooms in the home that are vacant should not have any electronics or lights left on. If you run your electronics through a power strip, you can turn everything off in that room with one switch.

If green energy is a concept which you embrace, minimize the use of electrical heaters during the winter months. Instead, start wearing warmer clothing indoors and use a pellet stove or fireplace to keep main living areas heated. Keep in mind that cooler air is better for your breathing while you sleep as it prevents your airways from becoming dry.

TIP! Dry clothes on a clothelines during the summer. The smell of clothes dried in the fresh air cannot be topped.

If you are unsure about making big green energy investments in your home, then hire professionals like a plumber or heating expert to come in and give you an overview of your existing systems. These consultants will visit your home, assess your energy usage, and provide options at several price points for making smart and economical green upgrades.

Energy Costs

TIP! Keep your refrigerator well maintained. You have to ensure it is in great working condition, as it sucks up energy like a sponge.

Opt out of snail mail where possible, and choose to get bills and notices by email. Don’t use paper whenever you can afford to do so. This will help the businesses you deal with cut down on energy costs, and it will also save you a lot of money on energy costs too. An added bonus is that everyone benefits by the protection of our environment.

When decorating for the holidays you should forgo traditional lights and get LED lights instead. According to a study by the U.S. The United States Department of Energy states over 2 billion hours of kilowatt power could by saved by a nationwide change. This amount could actually power around 200,000 homes for a whole year. Saving money on your electric bill is the least that can happen.

TIP! Use a green and tankless model as opposed to a tank-style water heater. Even though these green versions of water heaters still use electricity or gas, they only need it to warm the water you’re using instead of heating it at all times.

All the things we went over throughout this article are easy to implement, so don’t let excuses keep you from using them where you live. Environmental changes such as those discussed in this article protects our environment.

Green Energy Tips That Will Really Help You!

More and more people today see the benefits of looking out for our fragile environment. Protect the environment and save money with green energy. Read this article for some tips on using green energy today.

TIP! Use solar-powered lamps for outdoor lighting. These lamps are inexpensive and do not require any kind of power source other than exposure to the sun.

Use solar-powered lamps for outdoor lighting. Not only are these lamps cheap, but they only need power from the sun. This will end up saving you a lot of energy. You also don’t need to hang lights or wires outdoors.

In order to conserve energy, try keeping the windows shaded from the sunlight. Another suggestion for window treatments is installing curtains or blinds. Keeping your home cool in the summer means you will not be tempted to use the air conditioning as much. Energy and money are both saved this way.

TIP! Instead of turning on the air conditioner, wear fabrics made of natural materials. Moisture-wicking athletic fabrics pull moisture away from your skin, creating a cooling sensation.

Maintain your refrigerator. With the fridge being a top energy consumer in the home, maintenance is important for efficiency. Make a regular habit of removing dust from the refrigerator’s heating coils. Also, check the door to be sure it is sealed tightly.

Electric heaters are an energy hog and should be avoided as much as possible in the winter. They are not environmentally friendly. You can invest in warmer clothes and take advantage of your fireplace or pellet stove in order to heat your living areas. In addition, this is beneficial to your health, as cooler air keeps your airways from getting too dry, allowing you to breathe easier while sleeping.

TIP! People can get government grants to invest in some renewable energies. If you are interested in getting free money to improve your home you should contact your local government for more information.

When doing any updates to your home, look for energy-efficient products. Double or triple glazed windows and well-insulated doors prevent a lot of wasted energy while keeping the inside temperature more comfortable. When using these types of products you cut down on your heating and cooling costs.

Instead of using a desktop computer, which sucks up more electricity, buy a laptop. These portable machines will reduce your electrical use by 75% while you do everyday tasks. Also, you can bring the laptop with you wherever you go.

TIP! Do you have a large plot of land? If you own your farm property, you could allow an energy company to rent a small plot of your land, so they can install an energy-generating wind turbine. You and the neighbors can relish in the free energy and installation, if it doesn’t require too much space.

If you, like many other people, wish to lead a greener life in order to help save our environment, there are many things you can start doing now. Simply cleaning filters in the furnace and setting temperatures lower can help! Lowering the temperature on your water heater to 120 can also help reduce costs. Every small amount helps.

While cooking, use a microwave if you can to save on energy. Ovens and stoves use lots more energy to prepare food than microwaves. If you can cook things in the microwave instead, do it! This will help save a lot of energy.

TIP! Know the available energy options in your community. Be sure to look at the legislation and incentives available for using green utilities.

One easy way to go green is to use an on-demand water heater. Traditional water heaters heat water all day long, even when hot water is not needed; this wastes energy. On-demand heaters only heat water when necessary, which greatly reduces energy costs.

To cut your energy use, set your heater to 60 degrees when away from home and while you sleep. Keeping your thermostat on a low temperature will allow you to lower your overall energy usage. This helps greatly reduce your energy consumption and saves you money.

TIP! Don’t waste money or energy by running a half-full load of dishes. Avoid running the dishwasher when there isn’t a full load to run.

Make your carbon footprint smaller and use less energy by using some of the great ideas above to show that you care about the environment. It is worth using green energy for the savings alone.

Go Green Today With These Simple Home Solutions

Making small adjustments to the way you use energy every day can ultimately reduce your consumption. When a certain appliance is not in use, unplug it. Television sets and lights should never be left on when not in use. This is an excellent way of saving yourself some money.

You can save electricity by unplugging chargers when they are not in use. Charging devices for several common types of electronics, including laptops, cell phones, and MP3 players all draw “phantom power” if you keep them plugged in while they are idle.

TIP! Your furnace filters should be cleaned monthly and replaced yearly. Filters can also be installed in every warm-air register.

Wash clothes with cold water, as much as you can. Having heated water in your washer can use up to nine-tenths of the energy required to run a washing machine. Using a quality detergent means it is unnecessary to use hot water. Additionally, it is more energy-efficient if you are washing full loads instead of small ones.

If you utilize a dishwasher, avoiding using it until it’s filled up. It consumes the exact same amounts of electricity and water even if it’s not full. Run your dishwasher using the energy-saving mode so that you can air-dry dishes and save energy.

TIP! When you are away from home, use window coverings. This allows your home to be kept cool when you aren’t there, and in addition, it helps keep energy costs down.

When you plan a solar system for your home, try calculating what the energy generation of your system will be when you use hours worth of sun in the winter. This will prevent any unpleasant surprises during the winter months, while leaving you safely ahead of your needs during the summer. Combining this method with a net utilities plan will mean getting back money from the electric company during the summer, too.

When implementing a solar energy system, put the batteries as close to the cells as possible. Doing this will help prevent power loss within the cable. It also prevents the cable covering the cells, which would reduce their generation capability.

Tankless Heaters

Replace your tank-style water heater with a green, tankless model. While tankless heaters still require gas or electricity to heat your water, they only heat the amount of water you need, rather than keeping a large tank hot around the clock. Tankless heaters come in various models that either supply a single faucet or the whole house with hot water.

TIP! Turn off appliances if you are not using them. When you leave any room, turn off lights, tvs, computers or any other electrical devices.

Rather than using an energy-hogging desktop computer, switch to a laptop. You can save a ton of electricity by using a laptop. Both the Internet and most word processing software packages use a lot of energy on desktop computers, so getting a laptop can really save money if you use these features. Another benefit of the laptop is that it’s portable, so it can be used anywhere.

Find out about federal and local rebates for updates about renewable energy for your home. Sometimes your utility company may offer additional rebates which will help pay for the expense of the systems. The federal government offers tax write-offs and other credits in return for your changes. These credits and rebates will ultimately cut your costs of bringing green energy technology to your house.

TIP! Don’t run your dishwasher if it is less than totally full. It makes use of a fixed amount of energy no matter the amount of dishes it has.

If taking better care of the environment is a priority for you, then hopefully, you will put some of the tips you have read today to practical use in your home to begin minimizing your carbon footprint and making your home more energy efficient. The money you save alone makes it worth it.
