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.

Why Going With Green Energy? It Will Save Your Family A Lot Of Money

Going green inside the home is becoming a popular phenomenon, and there is good reason for this. Using green energy saves plenty of money as it helps the environment. This article should provide the information you need to utilize green energy for your home today.

TIP! Use a solar water heater to keep your pools, tubs and plumbing full of piping hot, but cheap, water. Solar water heaters use the sun’s heat to warm water rather than using natural gas or electricity for heat.

There are grants that can help you invest in green energy. To find out which programs are available in your area contact your local government. You may qualify for a free installation or a tax deduction.

Solar Panels

TIP! Solar panels are easy to install. However, before installing them, there are some things to keep in mind.

Solar panels can be installed on your roof allowing you to use solar energy. However, you must consider a few issues before getting started. One thing to factor into your considerations is the amount of sun your house actually gets over the year. If you live in an area with a lot of shade, or worse, a lot of cloudy days, you’ll be unable to make full use of solar panels.

If you heat your home with fuel oil, inquire about switching over to biodiesel. Switching to biodiesel is often doable without system modification. Biodiesel is a clean choice when it comes to fuel, and using it will reduce the impact that your family has on the environment.

TIP! Wash clothes with cold water, as much as you can. Most of the energy used to wash clothes is actually used in heating up the water.

Understand the difference between passive and active solar power. Active solar power is stored so it can be used later, but passive doesn’t need pricey solar panel cells to store power. Active solar power needs to have cells, mechanical systems, and solar panels installed. Passive energy is using the sun’s thermal energy to heat your house.

Use energy saving products throughout your home to increase efficiency. Certain green items, such as eco-friendly windows and doors and double glazed windows, cut down on energy you need to keep your home going efficiently. When using these types of products you cut down on your heating and cooling costs.

TIP! When away from home, cover the windows. This cools your home’s interior and keeps energy usage down while you’re away.

Seek out local and federal rebates offered for making energy upgrades to your home. Sometimes, your local utility company can give you a rebate based on what the upgrades cost. The federal government offers tax write-offs and other credits in return for your changes. You’ll find that these discounts can effectively reduce the price of adding green energy alternatives into your home.

Look around for ways to “go green;” if you want to help conserve natural resources, there are many options available. For example, cleaning your furnace filters every month and turning down the heat when you aren’t at home will greatly increase the efficiency of your furnace. You can also help reduce energy usage by reducing the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees. Little things like this add up!

TIP! One thing you might consider is 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.

Heat your house with biofuels. This type of fuel is made of oils, wood and vegetable or animal fats. If your existing furnace runs on propane, it is quite easy for a professional to make the alterations required so it can perform as efficiently using a fuel blend. This could be anywhere up to 99% of biodiesel. Because this is a significant alteration, talk with a professional about the substitution before attempting to make any changes on your own.

When you exit a room, make it a habit to flip off the light switch. You could save quite a bit of energy if you are diligent about turning off the lights. You will, of course, save a lot of money on your energy bill, as well.

TIP! You can obtain hot water for a cheap cost with solar energy. Buy a hot-water system that is solar-powered.

Hopefully the information you just ready was quite useful to you. Go green to improve your home as well as your self esteem. Use the information you received here to make your home more efficient and greener for all.

Do Your Part By Checking Out These Green Energy Tips!

Incorporating green energy into your home is an easy way to reduce energy usage, and save the environment at the same time. Buying an electric car is not going to be needed! The following article contains commonsense strategies you can use to “green” your home right now, even if you’re poor.

TIP! To save money on your electric bills, simply try to minimize the electricity you use. When not using a certain appliance, unplug it from the outlet.

Using less energy daily means large energy and financial savings. If there is an appliance you aren’t using, then unplug it. Be diligent about switching off the television or lighting if you aren’t using them. This may be a simple tip, but it does save you money.

Do you currently own a farm? If so, you can rent a portion of it so wind turbines can be installed. You will reap the benefits of this energy and the space needed is minimal.

TIP! If you are trying to conserve energy in the summer, be sure to keep your shades drawn to block out the sun. Shades or curtains can also help.

Whenever possible, you should use cold water to wash your clothes. Hot water takes up 90% of energy used to wash clothing. As long as you have reliable clothes washing detergent, using cold water is just as effective. Also, be as energy efficient as possible by only washing full loads of clothing.

Consult a technician for more information about switching to biodiesel heating if your home currently uses oil for heating. Many heating systems can be switched over to run on biodiesel without needing extra modifications or parts. 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.

Window Coverings

Use window coverings when you’re not at home. You will lower your energy costs since this will help keep your home nice and cool. Generally, the south-facing windows get the most sun because of their position. Install window coverings like heavy curtains, drapes, roman or roller shades, or blinds on all windows.

TIP! Your furnace filters should be replaced annually, and inspected for monthly cleanings. Install filters for your warm-air registers, too.

Do some research to gain information on the energy sources available to your area. Find out what the cost would be to switch, how much it would cost to maintain, and whether your government has any legislation regarding its use. For example, it might be wise to use natural gas instead of electric heat or water from the well rather than city water.

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. When you run a dishwasher, use the ‘energy-saver’ setting so dishes can air-dry.

TIP! To conserve energy and save money, only run the dishwasher when you have a full load. Don’t run it when there are a low number of dishes present.

Take time to make sure to properly maintain the fridge. Refrigerators use a large amount of energy, so they should be taken care of to work their best. Make sure you clean out any dust from around heating coils. In addition to that, make the seal near the door clean and tight.

Using light bulbs that are energy-efficient, or cleaning your furnace filter, are great ways to save energy. Be an example for family members so others will see how simple it is to live a greener life! Remember these tips and start using them today.

Simple Tips For A Green Energy Home

You can protect the environment, as well as saving on energy costs, by using green energy at home. You don’t need an electric car for this. This article has some great, simple ways to improve energy efficiency.

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.

When creating lightning outdoors for a garden path or patio, consider using solar-powered lamps. This type of lamp is cost-effective and needs no power other than sunlight. This will save a lot of energy. Also, it will no longer be necessary to install wired outdoor lights.

Save electricity while becoming a more conscientious energy consumer by unplugging the chargers for all your electronic gadgets when they aren’t in use. Chargers for your electronics, such as an iPod or cell phone, are always using electricity, even when they’re not in use, so unplug them when you can.

TIP! One way to help conserve energy is to use window treatment to block sunlight. Another option is installing darkening shades.

Replace and clean furnace filters yearly, and check them monthly. You should also install filters on any warm-air registers included with your furnace. Having filters prevents debris from building up inside your heating ducts, which would hinder the energy efficiency of your heating system.

Wash Clothes
