This design is resource and energy-efficient as well as being strong and durable. They create a barrier to heat loss that can save almost half the energy typically spent on heating and cooling homes. While these benefits may well lead to a revolution in the building industry there are some drawbacks to insulated roof panels too. The market share of this form of roofing has always been small and is slowing down except in the niche of smaller buildings. Residential housing is one area thats benefiting from this trend. Another problem is that many believe such roof panels leave the house looking unattractive.
Solar roof panels have the ability to not only reduce your electric bill but also increase the value of your home. Installing a solar roof can literally save you in excess of $100000 off of your energy bill during the lifetime of your mortgage. Compared to the $25000 - $50000 that you may spend on a professionally installed solar system this is a small price to pay. The investment made in your home also has the ability to pay off in the short run if you sell before you have paid off the system. Think about how many people will pay a premium for a hybrid car despite known that they will get significantly lower performance.
If I was to ask you what solar roof panels are youd most likely say the large sheets of glass and silicon used to collect and store energy for the home. Well youd be half right. There is one other type of solar roof panel and that is a solar thermal panel which is used to heat water in both residential and commercial buildings. To start with the first type of solar panels let us talk about their usage and why businesses and residents may want to look into having them. The solar roof panels also known as photovoltaic panels work to create energy by separating the positive neutrons from the negative ones.
One of the first things you should consider is placement. Where will the solar roof panel receive the most amount of sunlight? Facing the panels south is the best choice for optimum energy. Never face them to the north. You should make sure that you check with your local building department before you install the panels. Some areas require you to have a special building permit. Make sure you tilt the solar roof panel in relation to the latitude in which you live. There is a rule of thumb to follow for efficiency. 0-15 degrees latitude: 15 degree tilt 15-25 degrees latitude: tilt degree = same as latitude degree 25-40 degrees latitude: tilt degree = latitude degree + 5 degrees 40+ degrees latitude: tilt degree = latitude degree + 20 degrees
