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 Bid For The Environment With These Green Energy Tips!

We should all use green energy, as much as possible, to protect the environment. From harnessing the power of wind and solar to biofuels, there are numerous ways to obtain environmentally-friendly electricity. What can you do to incorporate green energy in your life? Reading on will help you learn more.

TIP! Solar panels can be installed on your roof allowing you to use solar energy. Before you do this, you should research just a few things first.

Switch to water heating systems that use solar power to heat hot tubs, pools and indoor water. Solar water heaters use solar energy in an efficient way to heat your water. These upgrades may cost more, but qualify for tax deductions, too.

Solar panels are an easy addition to your home that helps you and your family go green. It is important, however, that you do your homework before making the leap. One thing to factor into your considerations is the amount of sun your house actually gets over the year. If you’re in a shady area, or a place that doesn’t have many sunny days, you won’t be able to gain as much power.

TIP! Conserve energy by unplugging chargers when you aren’t using them. Anytime a charger is plugged in, it is using a bit of energy.

Unplug your chargers when they aren’t being used to charge your devices. Many chargers for various electronics continue to draw electricity even if they are not plugged into a device. The energy usage is not as high, but it wastes electricity and adds up to a considerable amount over time.

When you calculate the solar panel needs of your home, figure out the hours of sun you get in the winter. This prevents any unanticipated effects from a winter months, and it keeps you ahead of the game for summer months. If you generate excess energy during the summer, with the right plan, your utility company will send you a check!

Storm Doors

Storm doors and windows help control air flow into a home. Storm doors and windows stop drafts from letting in so much cold air. Installing storm windows and doors can increase energy efficiency by up to 45%.

TIP! Find out about various energy sources that are available in your area. Find out what the cost of using these utilities to run your home would be.

Replace an energy-hogging water heating tank with a greener, tankless variety. Although they still use gas or electricity, they only heat on demand rather than maintaining an entire tank of hot water at all times. Tankless water heaters are available to purchase in many different sizes; you can heat water for your whole house, or just a single faucet.

Use electric heaters minimally in the winter. Instead, invest in some warm clothing and slippers for family members and use a fireplace or pellet stove to heat living areas. An additional benefit to limiting the amount of electrical heaters is that it helps prevent your airways from becoming dry, resulting in better breathing.

TIP! Keep your refrigerator properly maintained. Refrigerators take up lots of energy, so making sure they’re in working order is always good to know.

It is becoming abundantly clear that now is the time to transform our energy sources from old, wasteful and pollutant to greener and more economical ways. All power sources will have some impact to the environment; however, through greener avenues, this impact can be reduced greatly. Hopefully, you can include some of the tips and techniques from this article into your life.

Learn About Green Energy Sources Without Hassle!

Making the switch to green energy has many home and environmental benefits. You can make some small changes around the house which make it much more energy efficient, and you can cut electricity costs too! Continue on for some helpful green energy tips at home.

TIP! Making small adjustments to the way you use energy every day can ultimately reduce your consumption. If you’re not using particular appliances, unplug them! When you aren’t using your television, computer equipment or lights, don’t forget to turn them off.

When you’re coming up with a design for your outdoor lighting project, think about getting lamps that are solar powered. These lamps require now power source, except the sun, and are generally inexpensive. They also save energy. It also ensures that there is no need to wire lights outdoor.

Keeping your windows shaded to keep sunlight out of the house will greatly conserve energy. Closing your blinds and curtains will keep out the sun in summer and keep heat from escaping in winter. These actions will reduce the air conditioning usage during the hot summer months, and yet your home will still remain cooler. You’ll save money as well as energy.

TIP! Some government money is available to assist consumers with switching to renewable energy. If you are interested in getting free money to improve your home you should contact your local government for more information.

Wear lightweight, natural fabric during the summer instead of running your air conditioner. Cotton and similar fabrics will draw moisture from your skin, so you will stay cool. Wear light colors because these will make you warmer and it will be less likely for you to use artificial cold air.

Cover your windows when you are away from home. This will help save energy. These help your home remain cool and keep your energy bill down when you are not there. Generally, the south-facing windows get the most sun because of their position. Make sure that all the windows are covered with dark curtains, blinds, roman shades, or whatever shade you choose.

TIP! Do you have a lot of land? If you do, or if you are aware of someone that does, you may be able to rent some of the property to a local energy company that will install a type of wind turbine. You and the neighbors can relish in the free energy and installation, if it doesn’t require too much space.

Consider solar water heaters to make your home more energy efficient. The heater uses solar energy to heat water before sending it to your home. This can be useful if your home isn’t located in an area with cold temperatures. Even though solar water heaters are useful, it is still necessary to have a normal water heater for periods of extended cloudy weather or unusually high hot water use.

Using the sun to heat your water is very cost effective. Get a solar hot-water system. You have the choice for an indirect or direct circulation system. Indirect systems are the best if you have frozen pipes during the winter.

TIP! Check monthly to determine if your furnace’s filters need cleaning and replace them yearly. Warm-air registers should also have filters installed on them.

This article has shown that it isn’t necessary to spend a lot of time or money on going green. You can save a lot of money in utility costs by just making a couple changes. This article has tips that are perfect for positively impacting the environment so share them.

Green Energy Tips And Tricks For A Healthy Environment

In modern times, the daily implementation of green energy practices is on the rise. What the heck is green energy?q Green energy is the use of renewable resources and technology that is energy-efficient. Green energy is available for every home, and with the tips in this article, you can find out how to incorporate it into your home.

TIP! Be a better consumer of energy, and cut your home energy usage by unplugging your electronic chargers when they are not in use. Chargers used for cell phones, laptops, mp3 players and other electronic devices use power when they’re plugged in, even if they aren’t charging your device.

Use solar-powered lamps for outdoor lighting. The solar lamps are relatively inexpensive and will not need any additional power other than direct sunlight. This will save significant energy. You will not have to hook up the lights to an electrical source.

You can conserve energy by shading your windows from sunlight. Do this by installing blinds or curtains. Doing these things will let you use less air conditioning in the summer. You will save energy, as well as money.

Natural Fabrics

Use natural fabrics in the summer instead of turning up the AC. Natural fabrics, including cotton, cause moisture to move away from the body, which means it stays cooler. Choose lighter colors so that you feel cooler and can resist turning up the air conditioning.

TIP! Replace or clean your furnace filters yearly, and recheck them monthly. Adding filters to warm-air registers is also beneficial.

Solar panels that collect solar energy to be used are easy to have installed at your home. Before you do this though, you need to think about a few things first. How much sun is your house getting on average? If your home is shaded, or you live in a relatively cloudy area, your power savings will not be as much.

Research the different energy sources available in your community. Determine which energy source is cheapest for your home. Don’t forget to account for any government incentives that might be in effect. It can benefit you to use natural gas instead of electricity, for example.

TIP! Help to control the air flow in your own home by installing a storm door and storm windows too. Storm windows are good at cutting down on the cool air that tries to get in.

A good way to conserve energy is to not use your dishwasher unless it is completely full. Avoid running the dishwasher when there isn’t a full load to run.
