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

What Is Green Energy? Learn About It Here!

You may have heard about green energy before, and you were just not sure how to implement it into your home. If you want a quick primer on green energy, as well as why it’s useful, then this article is for you. Continue on to learn about the different ways you can incorporate green energy technology at home.

TIP! Just start using less energy every day. If you have appliances that are not in use, keep them unplugged until you need them.

There are many government incentive programs you can take advantage of when it comes to green energy. Talk to your local representative to see if programs operate in your neighborhood. 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.

Wait until your dishwasher’s full before running it. The energy used is the same whether you are washing a small load of dishes, or one that is larger. Make use of the air drying, energy-saving option on your washer.

TIP! Switch to solar heating systems for water to lower your cost of indoor water. Using natural gas and electricity is certainly the norm, but it’s not very energy efficient.

Using the sun to heat your water is very cost effective. Check into investing in a water system that is solar-powered. There are both direct and indirect circulation options to choose from. Most individuals will find the indirect option to be their best choice, as this option has methods in place to alleviate the problem of pipes freezing in the coldest months of winter.

Storm Doors

TIP! Clean filters or replace them to ensure your furnace is appropriating at prime efficiency. Adding filters to your warm-air registers is not a bad idea, either.

Homes with storm doors and windows have better airflow than homes without these upgrades. Storm doors and windows lessen the amount of cold air drafts that come in. Energy efficiency improves by 45% when storm doors and windows are implemented, which are big energy savers.

Save energy by buying products that conserve energy. Use products such as double-glazed windows or eco-friendly doors to help reduce your energy usage without sacrificing your home’s needs. By installing these products, your home is sealed tighter, and you use less energy to heat and cool your home.

TIP! Wash your clothes in cold water whenever possible. Almost 90% of the energy you use when you do laundry is due to heating water.

Don’t set your thermostat to over 68 degrees if you can help it. Wear sweatpants and a sweater if you are chilly. When your heat is running it uses more energy than necessary.

When you put up lights during the holidays, avoid the normal light strands and hang LED lights instead. LED’s have been shown to save a significant amount of energy. The Energy Department showed that more than two billion kh of power could be saved if everyone made the switch. That amount of electricity could power 200,000 homes for an entire year. At the very least, you can shave some money from your own power bill!

Green Energy Technology

Now that you know what green energy technology is, you hopefully are ready to convert your home using it. Use the tips you read in this article to help you use green energy technology in your home. The environment, and your wallet, will both thank you for using this technology.

Going Green For Yourself And The Environment

You may want to update your own home with new solar panels because of the positive impact on the environment, and your wallet. There are several good reasons to consider solar panels for your home, from eco-friendliness to government incentives. This article has many benefits on the use of solar panels.

TIP! Do you live on a farm? Consider renting out a small space where a power company can place a wind turbine. You and the neighbors can benefit from this free installation and energy which won’t take up much space.

Simply lessening the amount of daily energy consumption can save lots of energy. Unplug appliances that are not being used. Be diligent about switching off the television or lighting if you aren’t using them. These simple tips can save you money, as well as saving electricity.

If you want to preserve energy, keep your windows so they are shaded from sunlight. Shades or curtains can also help. Doing these things will let you use less air conditioning in the summer. Not only will you save energy, but you will also save money.

TIP! Your furnace filters should be cleaned monthly and replaced yearly. Installing the filters in warm-air registers is also a great idea.

During the hot summer months, hang clothes outside rather than tossing them in the dryer. In addition to the energy savings, you clothes will smell incredible. They will smell fresher than if you used the dryer. In addition, you will save a lot of money on your monthly utility bills.

Do not use your dishwasher unless it contains a full load of dishes. It will use the same quantity of water or energy even if one dish is in it. When you run the dishwasher, see to it that you are using its energy-saving setting; that will allow the dishes to dry using air.

TIP! Think about heating your water with solar water heaters. If you’re in an area that doesn’t have to worry about freezing temperatures, you can get a system that will circulate the water through a solar heater before pumping it into your home.

Save on water heating costs by using solar energy. Install a water heating system that uses solar power. There are systems available that circulate the heat both directly and indirectly. For colder regions,indirect is a better option.

One of the simplest ways that you can go green is by dressing warmly. A thin sweater will provide you with two degrees of additional heat, while a heavier item will add four. You don’t have to worry about wearing too little at home so consider getting a sweater to save money.

TIP! If you have a dishwasher, do not turn it on until it is full. Regardless of how many dishes are inside, equal amounts of water and energy are used.

Make your home energy-efficient with products that conserve power. Insulated double-pane windows and eco-friendly doors are especially effective for saving energy. Utilizing these kinds of products permits you to reduce the costs of cooling and heating your home.

Keep the heat as low as you can, unless you absolutely have to raise it. If it’s a bit chilly, try wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants. Having the heat up high wastes a lot of energy.

TIP! Help to control the air flow in your own home by installing a storm door and storm windows too. Storm windows and storm doors reduce the amount of cold air entering the home in the form of drafts.

Build and use a solar oven to bake outdoors and save energy. These can even be made yourself using items such as a box, a discarded window, and some tin foil. The oven can heat up to well over 300 degrees using no electricity!

Switching out your boiler for a newer, more efficient model can be a great way to save energy. Old boiler units were not designed with energy conservation in mind, yet new boilers are typically more efficient. They have two advantages: reducing your energy bill by a large amount, and producing a lesser amount of CO2, which is much more healthy.

TIP! Fans of green energy should limit their use of electric heaters in the winter. Wear several layers of warm clothes instead, and heat main rooms with a pellet stove or fireplace.

As you should now see, renewable energy sources for your home are both eco-friendly and budget-conscious. Best of all it doesn’t take a lot of effort for you to buy and install solar panels for your home. Upgrading your home to use green energy is a no-brainer!

Why Should I Care About Green Energy Sources?

Today, we realize the importance of taking better care of the environment that sustains us. One way to take better care of the environment and save you money as well, is by using green energy in your home. This article introduces new ways to prioritize green energy at home or work.

TIP! By cutting back on electricity use, you will save quite a bit of money. When not using a certain appliance, unplug it from the outlet.

Shading windows from sunlight whelps to save energy. Additionally, curtains and blinds can enhance the energy-saving effect you achieve. Since this will make your house cooler, you will use the air conditioner less. The result is a significant energy savings and money in your pocket!

Use drapes or curtains in your windows for 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. Typically windows on the southern side of the home receive the most sun. Use coverings on each of your home’s windows, such as roman shades, dark curtains, or roller shades.

TIP! Do your best to keep your windows shaded from any sunlight. You can do this by putting up blinds or curtains.

Know the available energy options in your community. Checking the costs of running a home with utilities should also include recent legislation about energy costs. You may find that natural gas will be better for your home than electric, or that well water is an available alternative to city water.

When not being used, turn things off. Upon leaving a particular room, remember to turn of the lights, television, computer or even the entertainment center.
