Hello everyone, my name is Steve and welcome to aquaheat.uk. Today we are showing you an installation of solar panels that we've done. This is a solar panel system that provides hot water for the property. On this particular installation, we fitted two landscape solar panels on to a flat roof and they're staggered one behind the other. We've got one here and then we have another one here. They're both connected by this pipework here, it goes down, through the roof into where the solar cylinder is we can talk about.
That afterwards. So normally on these panels on a flat roof, they do sit side by side. On this particular installation to comply with local planning, they've requested that they've been fitted one behind the other, which we can do. With reverse style solar panels you can fit them on a pitched roof they'll either be on the roof or you can fit them mounted. This particular one is landscape, you can have portrait, which is like a portrait picture basically. This particular one is a Solar Worcester Bosch FKT1W. This is a.
More high efficiency solar panel, than the standard panel they do and it soaks up more UV's from the sun because of better performance. You will even find on days like today, where it is a bit cloudy and overcast that there is a lot of UV's around and you can still heat up hot water even on days like today. That's about it really it's quite a simple installation. We fit the frames, we assemble everything. We fit the solar panels in, run the pipework lagging in, it's wired into a sensor, which we've done. The next stage is.
How to Install Solar Panels Mounting Rails on Roof for Solar Panels
All right, we're getting ready to mount our rails up here, and I've got some blocks of wood. Pressure treated lumber already mounted, from one of my last solar projects, so we'll reuse those when we can. This roof is over the laundry room, and it's facing almost directly south, which is perfect for a solar exposure. Not too difficult for that top end. Let's get some down at the bottom now. Drill a couple of holes here, so we've got a couple more blocks of wood, just to rise this up off the roof. Give a.
How to Install Solar Panels Sealing Roof Holes With Caulk
As we mount our rails to the roof we'll be penetrating the shingles and we'll want to seal up all our holes. If you can picture this, here's our bolt, it's going to go through our rail and screw directly down to the roof. Picture this as a roof. Of course, this will penetrate into a stud inside the roof cavity and pull this entire thing sturdy. In that case we'll be using Henry's 209 is an asphalt based caulking that goes into standard caulking gun. Of course, very easy to use and that will allow us to fill the holes and prevent.
Rain from getting into the house once our panels are mounted. So this method of securing the holes is one of the most simple. Or you can find better methods of flashing if you're having it professionally done, you're installer may come with copper flashing to give you a nice finished look around the edges of your panels. Sometimes they mount them on tile rooves which use a slightly different mounting system, drilling holes in the tile and that takes a little extra time. If you're unsure which form of caulking will work best on your.
Harnessing the Sun at Davidson College
Today we're here to acknowledge the installation of solar panels on Baker Sports Complex, which I understand will not only heat the pool, but provide more energy than that. Almost three years ago Davidson College and then President Tom Ross started an initiative to bring renewable energy campus in a in a large scale way. And the way we've approached this is really two projects here on the roof of Baker Sports Complex. Baker Sports Complex is our largest roof, and our best application for solar. The two projects are a solar photovoltaic array, and a solar.
Thermal array. One of them is photovoltaic, and that produces electricity, and then the other one is solar thermal. and that basically absorbs light from the sun and converts it to heat, and then the heat heats up water, and it's used in the pool. The solar panels are also a huge educational asset. Already students from diverse disciplines such as economics, environmental science, anthropology, have come together in a witness and document the installation process, they've consulted with professionals in the energy field, and they've learned a lot about the challenges and opportunities in solar energy.
We engaged a group of interested students before we began construction, allowed them access to the roof and access to the contractors to ask questions. And the students engaged with them and actually watched the entire construction process and understand a lot how this is wired, how it works, what its produces and what it takes yo install. One of the things that's most unique about Davidson is the way that we aim to practice what we preach, so that the values students learn in the classroom can directly translate into the lives they lead here at the college.
How Radiant Barrier Works AtticFoil Reflects Heat Coming Off The Roof
Hey, this is Ed with AtticFoil. In this short tutorial I'm going to explain HOW an atticinstalled radiant barrier works. All of the heat from the sun is transferred to Earth in the form of radiant heat. This is heat transfer without actual contact with the heat source. When your roof absorbs radiant heat from the sun, it heats up. Eventually, your roof will start to reradiate the heat in all directions. About half of the heat, or energy, will transfer into the attic. Radiant heat is the invisible part of the light spectrum.
It's the part you feel, not the part you see. For example, if you stand near a fire on a cold night, you feel the radiant heat on your front side, but your backside may still be cold since it's not receiving any radiant heat. Radiant heat travels at the speed of light until it's either absorbed or reflected. Normally your attic insulation will absorb all of this energy and it too will start to heat up. Eventually this heat will make its way through the attic insulation and into the home. Traditional attic insulation will.
Only slow down the heat transfer process. When you install a radiant barrier between the roof and the attic insulation, by either stapling it to the bottom of the roof rafters or laying it out over the attic insulation, it breaks this path by reflecting the radiant heat back towards the roof, and helps keep the attic insulation from getting as hot. By keeping the attic insulation cooler, we can significantly reduce the amount of heat transfer entering the home by making the regular attic insulation more effective. So think of it this way radiant barrier is your FIRST line of defense against radiant heat, and.
Traditional attic insulation is your second line of defense against conductive heat flow. Since your home is exposed to both types of heat, you need a different product for each one. In fact, radiant heat is actually EASIER to control than conductive heat since it can be reflected by just about any shiny surface. A lot of people talk about a COOLER ATTIC, which is nice but really what we want is cooler attic insulation. An attic installed radiant barrier will keep your attic insulation cooler. This means less heat will enter the home.
Anna Maria Historic Green Village Tutorial 6 Making Power Heating It Up, Keeping It Cool
Instrumental gtgt Lizzie So a key part of this zero energy equation is to reduce our energy needs. So a huge thing for me probably even more important than the photovoltaics, is insulation. Insulate, insulate, insulate! Just reduce the amount of energy you need to cool down a building or heat it up. Ray We insulated underneath the rafters. The standard in Florida for roofs is R19 we have a much fatter coat on here, we have an R30 roof so we have a lot of insulation that prevents heat from coming inside the.
Building. Lizzie We're using photovoltaic energy which is energy from the sun to generate electricity, we're using thermal energy solar thermal energy where we're using the heat and the energy from the sun to heat up water which is so important in a cafe, you imagine the number of plates that we're washing, and the amount of water we're heating up to make coffee. Ray What a solar thermal panel is is basically it's a flat panel with copper tubing in it and it's painted black and what it does is.
It heats up water. That water will heat to 170 degrees absolutely free. Lizzie And then the third crucial technology is geothermal. We have gone down 450 feet below the Rosedale cafe into an aqua fir where the water temperature is 72 degrees. So all we have to do is bring it up a 450 foot well, pass it through some heat transfer technology and cool down the air in the cafe, or in the Winter, heat the air up and we just said this has to be integrated. The whole thing has to work so that we are very efficiently.
