As the days grow shorter and the nights grow cooler, maybe you’re turning your thoughts to heating and hot water. It may be cooler outside, but here on the Costa Blanca, we are fortunate to enjoy an average 320 days a year of sunshine. If you are looking to save money and reduce your casa’s carbon footprint, why not talk to the experts at Fernandez Luna about installing solar panels in time for the Spanish winter?
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels absorb the radiation from the sun in special collectors, which then raise the water temperature, at little or no cost to the owner of the property, or to the Earth’s natural resources. It’s a great investment, and there is a choice of installations. The professionals at Fernandez Luna will survey your property and recommend the most appropriate solution for your requirements, using one of several different, integrated options, depending on your needs.
Thermosiphon flow system:
This is a relatively simple system, which can normally be installed quickly, at a reasonable cost. It’s non-polluting, since it doesn’t rely on the use of fossil fuel. However, this system may need extra plumbing to take the heated water to the taps in your house. Also, the holding tank will be heavy, and the panels need to be south facing to ensure maximum radiation absorption. It may not be suitable for all properties.
Forced flow system:
The forced flow system transfers the heated water by means of a pump system, which relies on electricity. It’s more suited to larger installations than the thermosiphon flow system. It’s also a more appropriate choice when it’s not possible to install the tank above the solar panels. With a forced flow system, there are more location options for the water tank, since it doesn’t have to be sited above the solar panels. While it is easier to regulate temperature with a forced flow system, it’s not as energy efficient as the thermosiphon flow system of solar heating.
This is a system for directly converting the sun’s energy into electricity, and it’s being used widely these days. It’s an integrated system that can help you save a lot of money on your bills, while providing you with efficient electrical supply. The engineers at Fernandez Luna can explain exactly how it works, and why it’s a good option for you. Photovoltaic provision of energy is sustainable, and also a financially viable alternative to grid electricity.
