Switching to Solar One Step at a Time
If you’re still unsure about switching your home to solar power, you can take small steps and use solar power on specific areas of your house first. Here are some to consider:
- Attic Fans – An attic fan is a great way to improve air circulation in the house, as well as to help your HVAC systems reduce energy consumption. Now, imagine a solar-powered attic fan; this translates to free improved ventilation and comfort in the house.
- Lights – What better way to power up your lights than with the sun itself. With solar energy, you can directly tap the sun’s rays to light up your home at no extra cost.
- Water Heater – Water heaters take up a lot of energy. By transforming your regular water heater to a solar-powered one, you can easily cut down on costs and stay comfortable.
- Air Conditioners – Air conditioning is more commonly used when it’s hot or sweltering outside; the kind of weather in which solar panels function best. And If one were to peek here, they’d find many more devices and appliances that run on solar energy. Take advantage of the heat outside to cool your home when you most need it, through a simple switch to solar power.
Going for solar power does not necessarily require homeowners to disconnect their current energy lines. An on-grid system will allow you to continue accessing conventional energy while letting solar power take on some of the weight. The result is a significant reduction in energy costs.
