When the sun hits the glass it heats the glass up quickly yet evenly which in turn heats the water. Once heated to proper temperature the water is released and pumped to the desired location(s) for it to be used. In an office setting this would likely be to sinks for washing hands or dishes in a cafeteria or for vending machines that make coffee and other hot drinks. Another business that uses these panels for hot water is laundromats which can then pass on a savings to their customers. Finally businesses often will use a forced-water heating system to keep the building at the right temperature throughout the year.
Solar roof panels are attached to your roof and sit about three or four inches above it on a light metal rail system. As a side benefit the panels protect your roof to some extent thereby extending its life and saving you money. The panels also serve to shade the roof in summer and they allow air to flow between the panels and the roof itself which in turn can mean that you need less air conditioning to cool your house again saving you money and also saving wear and tear on your air conditioning units. Solar roof panels also look attractive and these days they usually have a useful life of at least twenty-five years making them well worth considering as a wise investment on your home.
In the early days of solar roof panels the hope was that one or two panels would help to lower the electricity bill a bit. To be honest sometimes it seemed more of a gimmick than a real cost savings. Things have changed and changed a lot too. With a properly planned and though out installation of solar roof panels you can not only cut your electricity bills to mere pennies but you can actually put your electricity bill into negative figures so that it owes you money instead.
Newer solar technology has produced solar cells which can produce up to twenty percent efficiency a vast improvement of the seven to ten percent produced by the older solar cells. This improvement has improved the economics of solar power and makes the investment of a solar roof a more viable choice than previous systems. Using new technology your homes roof can provide not only protection from the elements it can be a valuable source of electricity. Make use of the sunlight falling on the roof which now goes to waste by using it to power all those electrical gadgets so necessary to modern life.
