For those who managed to build their own houses and moreover, are lovers of the planet and want to protect the environment, those who are stuck with the money, that love long-term investments and are open to the news that appears on the market, no matter what field they belong to, installing solar panels for their homes would be an excellent choice that would be very easy to use. Solar panels are instruments that exploit solar energy to produce thermal and electrical energy without having any negative effects on the environment. Thus, solar panels make use of an inexhaustible natural resource, turning into an increasingly used alternative by consumers. On the market, solar panels are divided into two main categories: thermal and photovoltaic. This classification is based on the type of energy it generates. So the eco solution to heat the household water, is needed to install thermal solar panels. For less invoice costs is needed photovoltaic solar panels. However, there are also hybrid solar panels, those that have the ability to turn the energy from the sun into both hot and cold water. If the roof of the building has large dimensions, then installing this type is not recommended. In addition, shall be taken into account the high acquisition costs in comparison and the panels presented above.


Is it worth or not worth the investment?

Once installed, solar panels come in a package with a whole host of advantages. Among them, can be mentioned the lowering prices from utilities bills by up to 65%, according to statistical data provided by a team of specialists. Moreover, the thermal solar panels increase the lifetime of the existing heating system in the dwelling, and the photovoltaic ones are autonomous in relation to the price increases of electricity, based on the energy produced by the sun. Thus, with the mounting of solar panels, there will be less investment and more money saved. The main problem is that the solar panels are charged according to the intensity of the sunlight. If it’s high, then things will work smoothly. Since its intensity decreases, then the amount of energy will no longer be enough to heat domestic water or make household appliances work. Therefore, disconnection from traditional energy sources is not recommended. By analyzing the cold, however, the advantages weigh more in the direct fight with the disadvantages. Many of the developed countries in the world have adopted this ecological method of energy production, revealing the real benefits that solar panels have in terms of both the environment and their own pocket. For example, the newest law passed by the state of California provides that any building to be built from 1 January 2020 will have to operate on the basis of solar energy. Here is another proof that authorities around the world support this eco initiative.


How difficult is it to mount such eco equipment?

With regard to the mounting of solar panels, things are as simple as possible. They can be mounted on any type of roof, but there is only one condition. It is important and necessary that it be inclined around 30 degrees. At the same time, if the roof is flat, you can get the necessary surface capable of generating energy with additional supports. It is essential that the panels operate at full capacity to meet the expectations of energy bills.

    Tutto bene, purchè non creino un forte impatto visivo. Ma adesso, per esempio, fanno anche tegole fotovoltaiche, che vengono utilizzate nei centri storici…Insomma è sicuramente una buona tecnologia ma deve essere ben integrata nella struttura che l’accoglie o nel paesaggio..

    Io mi chiedo perchè non ci siano pannelli su tutti i tetti. Abbiamo una superficie costituita dai lastici solari che se coperta da pannelli basterebbe per renderci indipendenti dalle fonti energetiche fossili, abbassando anche i costi di acquisto degli stessi pannelli. Il problema però è proprio non voler rinunciare a certe fonti energetiche.. ma qui si aprirebbe un dibattito troppo lungo.
