One of the easiest ways that you can incorporate the principles of green living into your everyday life is by installing a Solar Hot Water Heater at your home. Hot water accounts for a big percentage of the energy consumption in the typical home. These heaters are a very effective method of using natural energy to save you money on your energy bills. There are hundreds of designs available to fit any budget.
Solar thermal systems use sunlight to heat water — for domestic use, swimming pools and more. A typical direct solar thermal system consists of collector, pipes and an insulated tank.
A typical 100 LPD (litre per day) system is sufficient to provide approximately 100 litres of hot water at an average temperature of 65°C every day on all sunny days. This helps save approximately 4 units of electricity daily (equivalent energy consumed by an electrical geyser) offering cost benefits.
In today’s world, green technology is gaining popularity among buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate. In general, making environmentally friendly improvements to your home is an easy way to increase the overall value and appeal of your property.
These systems can help increase the value of your home while bringing down the cost of your utilities.
