Nationwide Home Solar Power Contractors and Information
The sun is our most powerful heater. Every day it brightens and warms our Earth - it is the very lifeblood of every species on the planet. Solar thermal space heating can be incorporated through either intelligent building design, modern solar thermal technology or, better yet, both.
There are several ways to regulate home temperature through solar heating.
This section of CalFinder's Solar Library will explore in-depth the existing applications for solar thermal space heating. You'll find info about system types, processes, components, maintenance, financing and incentives for each system. Following a brush-up on the details, CalFinder Solar can then connect you with pre-screened local solar installers for free estimates and more personal assistance.
Trombe walls capture and store solar energy to be permiated in homes for later use. The then heated air is more comfortable than dry, forced air heat. Setting up a system is relatively inexpensive using a CalFinder Solar Contractor.… Read more »
Flat-plate collectors are actually quite simple. They consist of an insulated metal box covered with a glass or plastic cover called glazing. Within the box, is a dark-colored absorber plate that is made out of a metal heat conductor and painted black to… Read more »
Flat-plate air collectors are simpler than liquid collectors and are used for space heating. Heat evaporates from air faster than liquid, making air collectors less efficient than the liquid models. Air collectors work fine for smaller applications, but p… Read more »
Solar thermal space heating can be either an active or passive process. In this article, we are going to focus on the active form of liquid based space heating. In passive systems liquid, such as water, is heated in barrels by sunlight absorbed by solar g… Read more »
Direct gain solar systems utilize vessels such as insulated, glazed windows for conducting energy. A direct gain system is also the simplest of solar systems in form in that heat collection, storage, and distribution all function within the same space.… Read more »
You can expect energy savings in heating and cooling in the 70 to 90 percent range by using solar water walls.… Read more »
Roof ponds for solar purposes are black masses of water that collect and store solar energy to be radiated in the evenings.… Read more »

We are very pleased with Acro Electric. The entire process from estimate to completion of job was smooth and entirely stress free. They came out, took a look at what we had, and were very willing to work with us on just what our project required.
