Solar panels are installed outside your home, either on the roof or on the ground next to the building. They absorb radiant light from the sun and convert it into energy, which can be used for a number of things.
In the case of solar heating, the light energy is used to power the furnace inside the house, and keep your family warm all winter! Solar heating is often praised as a “clean” way of heating your home, as solar energy is a renewable resource.
While the initial cost of installing solar panels may seem steep, using renewable energy to power your HVAC systems can save you money on your monthly energy bill. It can also earn you a monthly stipend from the government for any energy you don’t use! Call Cardinal Heating today to find out more!
Much like solar heating, geothermal heating systems also use a renewable energy source to power the heating system inside your home.
The difference is that instead of using light energy from the sun, geothermal heating systems pull heat energy that is produced and stored within the earth’s crust and use that to warm your home during colder months.
Geothermal heating is easily accessible in most places around the world since they don't require nearly the amount of space solar panels do.
It is also more cost effective, saving you anywhere from thirty to seventy percent on your monthly energy bills! If you're interested in learning more about geothermal heating, contact the heating experts at Cardinal Heating today!
Another affordable option for home heating is installing a heat pump, or several, in your home. Heat pumps work by pumping warm air into your home to keep it warm in the winter.
Heat pumps are a legitimate space heating alternatives for homes without a central duct system, so depending on the size of your home, you may need several heat pumps. Heat pumps can also cost only a quarter of what other heating systems may cost.
