When beginning to make the switch to solar energy, it is sometimes difficult to know where to start. Here are some suggestions for solar energy usage that are easily accessible and extremely beneficial.
1.Use solar energy to heat your pool or hot tub. Purchasing solar-powered pool covers or heating systems will keep your outdoor recreation facilities constantly heated and ready for use. It is a good way to maintain comfort while eliminating cost.
2.Indoor heating options are also available through solar energy resources. One way to heat your home is through the use of heat storage tubes. They absorb the sunlight energy during the day and emit heat to warm up your entire household.
3.Invest in solar power charging devices for your electronics. Cellular devices as well as many other batteries can be charged by inexpensive and reusable solar powered chargers, also eliminating the need to find an electrical outlet in desperate times.
4.Indoor and outdoor lighting can both be used through solar power. Like solar panels, indoor heating lights that use solar energy absorb sunlight and store energy in batteries for night-time use. By eliminating the use of overhead electrical lighting, you will be able to save time and energy by choosing this option.
5.Believe it or not, very simple options such as using a clothesline are a component of solar energy usage. By hanging clothes out and using the sunlight to help them dry, you are using passive solar energy to eliminate the cost and waste associated with using a traditional clothes dryer. There are plenty of other ways to use passive solar energy throughout your home as well!
