Home Renovation: Heating With Solar Energy

Solar heating is ideal for heating effectively and environmentally friendly. Solar energy is used with a high-quality solar heating system, and the conventional heating system is supported. The heater stores the collected solar heat via collectors and returns it to the heater.

Solar heaters support every heating system.

The heat demand of a house can usually not be completely covered by solar heating. For this reason, it makes sense to combine the system with another type of heating. Gas heating is also used in many houses. But regenerative technologies such as pellet heating are also suitable for interaction with solar heating. With the help of an automatic control unit, the additional system always switches on immediately if the heat requirement is not covered by solar heating alone. In addition, solar heating is also used for hot water preparation. This has the advantage that the excess solar energy can heat the domestic water in the warm months.

The solar collectors of a solar heating system collect the heat from the sun and transfer it to a special carrier fluid. This is transported through pipes into the heating storage. The heat can be used individually to heat the house. The choice of collector type plays a major role in the efficiency of a solar system. A distinction is made between bottle collectors and tube collectors. The solar professional provides a lot of important information about solar energy. Here you benefit above all from a comprehensive specialist area in the field of solar thermal energy, storage technology, fireplace, and heating technology. The provider only sells high-quality solar systems from professional manufacturers. You can safely order all products with extensive buyer protection via the EHI-approved shop. Since the ordering process is completely transparent, you always have an overview of the costs and delivery.

Pay attention to the correct size.

The type and size of the storage tank, especially when combining the solar system for hot water preparation and heating support, must be precisely dimensioned. The larger the storage, the more solar energy can be stored and used. At the same time, greater energetic losses are to be expected. At the same time, the relationship between the storage capacity and the investment costs must be taken into account in the planning. With a collector area of ​​between 8 and 20 square meters and a storage volume of 600 to 2,000 liters, an annual average of 20% to 30% of the heat demand can be covered. At the same time, the insulation standard and thus the energy standard of the building are decisive.
