While solar energy is most often associated with the production of electricity, heating is also a major platform. While heating isnt particularly difficult, efficiency in doing so is the key to saving wear and tear on your system.
A Key Element In Solar Panels – Efficiency
The sun produces a ton of energy, but solar panel systems have historically been very inefficient at converting it. With improving technology, efficiency has improved to the point where most panel systems can easily produce enough energy to heat water for the home and pools. There are efficient and inefficient ways to go about this process.
To save wear and tear on your panels, you need to consider a flow control system. Older panel systems tend to take a long time to heat up fluid because water more or less randomly circulates through the system. This is very inefficient because the panels are forced to heat up a much larger pool of water than you actually need. This results in wear and tear, not to mention lengthy waits for hot water.
A control flow system attacks the efficiency problem by reducing the amount of water that must be heated. Most are designed to work on...
