Efficiency Is A Key Element To Look For In Solar Panels

While solar power is most frequently associated with the production of electricity, heating is also a major platform.

While heating isn’t especially troublesome, efficiency in your equipment is the key to saving wear and tear on your system. The sun produces a lot of energy, but solar panel systems have traditionally been terribly incompetent at changing it in to electricity. With improving technology, efficiency has improved to the point where most solar panel systems can simply produce enough energy to heat water for the home and swimming pools. To save wear and tear on your solar panels, you must consider a flow control system. Older systems have a tendency to take a while to warm up the liquid because the water temperature varies as it circulates thru the system. This is terribly inefficient as the panels are forced to warm up a much bigger resource of water than you really need.

A control flow system attacks the efficiency problem by reducing the quantity of water that has to be heated. The 1st control is found close to the solar panels being employed to warm the water or liquid substitute. The second is found on or near to the liquid return valve into the solar panel system. Put in practical terms, one sensor measures the temperature of liquid set to leave the panel while the other looks at the temperature of liquid coming into the panel. Flow systems work by waiting for the liquid to rise to a temperature decided by you. Once the liquid meets the temperature, the system turns on the circulation pump and moves the liquid to the required location.

Once the return valve sensor notes the temperature of the returning water is within a selected range of the liquid in the panel system, the pump is shut off. Solar panel solutions are coming to the front of the energy debate for many energy wishes. Just remember that flow systems are a must if you are looking for solar water heating.
