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.
The advancements in solar technology has helped in creating more efficient and light weight solar cells that make solar roof panels a more practical choice for the ordinary households. Solar cells of the solar roof panels are able to convert sunlight into solar energy which can be used for providing electrical energy to your home. These solar shingles or solar roof panels are meant to replace the regular shingles of your home thus providing a waterproof coverage to your home and also generating electrical power as an added advantage. As far as their installation is concerned a solar roof panel is easiest to install. The most common sizes used by households are 4 by 8 foot or 4 by 4 foot.
As for residents they too are beginning to look into using solar panels for their electricity. Although home panels come with a hefty installation fee with the tax incentives the savings per month on not having to rely so heavily on the power companies and the knowledge that the residents are helping out the environment are all great reasons for getting the PV Solar panels. The other type of roof panels are those known as solar thermal collectors. The panel is made up of a series of pipes that are sandwiched between absorption panels typically made of black glass. The pipes are filled with purified water every morning and refilled as the need increases.
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
