Solar Home Panel

Carl Said:

If my solar panel is to replace my roof, does it make my home less hot?

We Answered:

From a purely theoretical standpoint, the solar energy that your panels convert to electricity can't make your house hotter.

From a practical standpoint, the solar panels will shade the roof somewhat, especially if they are mounted on some kind of support a couple of inches above the roof plane.

Hard to say how much of an effect this would have.
