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 house 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 home heating 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.
The solar space heating kits provided by Northern Lights 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; though a secondary dissipation loop may be required to offload the heat during the summer months.
It's time to invest in solar space heating systems and take advantage of savings on utility bills effortlessly. Do a thorough research and make the right selection for your residential applications.
Using solar energy to power your home can result in reduced energy costs and is a clean source of energy for the environment.
Owners of solar power systems must install a reputable solar analytics monitoring system to ensure peak performance and to calculate electricity savings and environmental benefits, as well as to continually check the system for faults or problems that, if caught early, can be corrected and prevent system failure or degradation.
These are the simplest monitoring devices which usually consist of a digital readout on a straightforward front panel placed outside near the photovoltaic array. These are designed to provide basic information such as system power generation (in watts), total daily energy production (in kilowatt-hours), photovoltaic input voltage and photovoltaic input current (volts and amps).

Some manufacturers of inverter panels offer remote panel monitoring, which allows more detailed tracking and also allows you to monitor system progress from any location inside. They can be either hardwired or wireless
One advantageous upgrade to your system is the option to monitor capability from a peripheral network device or with built-in communication ability through either a local area network or wireless connection.
Web Monitoring of Individual Solar Panels
When you are using one inverter to monitor your entire array, you are not able to calculate the functionality and performance of individual solar panels. However, with micro-inverters this kind of pinpoint accuracy becomes possible.
