Rising fuel and energy costs have led many homeowners to consider solar energy options as a cost-effective alternative to heating their water and conditioning their air. By harnessing the power of the sun, you can reduce monthly utility costs by producing your own clean energy. Beaver Brothers specialize in solar energy unit installation, and we can help you determine the right system size and design for your home. Through our on-site energy analysis, we’ll design a system that best fits your needs.
Solar thermal energy uses the sun’s power to heat your air or water. By using the sun’s heat to provide some of your house’s hot water and conditioned air, you can lower your energy costs and lessen your family’s impact on the environment by not using expensive, polluting fuels.
Active solar energy systems are used for general space heating and water heating. Active units use pumps and fans to regulate and distribute the energy collected from the sun. Systems are simple and include one or more flat plate collectors which are connected to a storage and distribution system. Passive systems provide the same heating types but differ in that they do not store or distribute or use pumps or fans. Passive units use natural heat transfer forces of conduction, convection, and radiation to distribute the collected heat.
