Solar Panels Home Heating

Jill Said:

DO you think building construction with solar panels, heating and cooling coils, ie environmental friendly.. ?

We Answered:

Several year ago we worked on a home that heated all of their hot water from coils under their roof & stored it in an insulated 200 gallon tank. They also captured rain water, filtered it & used it for washing cars and watering their lawn & garden.

They had plans to install solar panels, but had not when we were there.

They claimed their water & power bills were 1/2 of their neighbors, so yes, I would say these adaptations are environmentally friendly, and if you plan to remain in the house for 5-10 years, you will return your investment & should realized a profit also, depending on how closely you watch you initial expenditures.


Good luck...
