Solar space heating systems are one of the most well-known solar thermal systems in the industry. They use solar evacuated tubes that perform well in low light conditions and temperatures that reach minus 35 degrees.
You can integrate solar thermal with an existing heating system like a radiator, in-floor heat or forced air heat. As a homeowner, you can expect to save up to 50% of your heating bill. After all solar home consumes a great portion of your energy utility bills – the payback can be under 5 years.
The Basic Principles of Solar Space Heating Systems
The solar space heaters use solar evacuated tube collectors to absorb solar energy. This energy is again transferred to a storage tank or concrete pad (in-floor heating). The heat that stored is then integrated with the existing heating systems to provide the heat supply.
Nowadays, most people used solar products which are very helpful in reducing extra money on electricity bills.
The solar space heating kits come with larger 119-gallon storage tanks that can hold more energy and can be used in the evening to supply heat when the sun isn't shining. The demand for heat happens during the winter through a secondary dissipation loop may be required to offload the heat during the summer months.
