Daytona Beach Solar Energy and Solar Panels
There are many reasons why solar powered devices are becoming so popular in the Volusia County and Daytona Beach area. The amount of daily sun that Floridians get in this area provides an excellent source of cheap, clean, and abundant energy. The sun’s energy can be used to do such things as heat swimming pools, power energy saving attic fans, and even heat the hot water that your home uses for everyday use. Better yet, solar power installations from Solar Volusia are essentially maintenance free and are very quiet in operation.
Why Are Solar Energy Panels Attracting more and more Interest?
For years oil was so abundant and so cheap that people never bothered to develop or look into all the different natural energy sources that surround us every day. That all started to change back in the 80’s and although it was late getting started, alternative energy research and development picked up at a never before seen scale. As people’s budgets continued to get stretched by energy prices, these new technologies became a perfect fit for Daytona Beach solar panels. It has been a win-win situation for both consumers and the environment ever since the widespread use of solar energy devices started. Residents and businesses of places like Daytona Beach have really been able to reap the many rewards that solar energy has to offer.
Cost Saving Benefits
In areas like Volusia County where this technology is extensively present, even with the recent drop in energy prices solar energy use continues to rise because people in this area are now keenly aware of its cost saving benefits. At Solar Volusia, we will educate you, the customer, on what to expect in savings over time, and how your green investment will be repaid over time. This is called return on invested capital, and is a key component in your investment decision. We now know that solar investments are excellent investments in your home value, and will undoubtedly pay you back over the years. The amount of time that it will take for you to recoup your investment depends on a number of factors:
How does Solar Technology Work?
The technology is comprised of what are called photovoltaic cells (PV cells); these cells are able to capture the natural energy from the sun’s powerful rays and store it for later use. These photovoltaic cells are made primarily of material that contains crystalline silicon and gallium arsenide; this is extremely similar to what is used in computer microchip technology. Once the energy from the sun’s rays is harvested, these special panels convert, then store, the energy as a usable energy source. The effectiveness and capacity of each individual solar panel is determined by both its size and the quality of materials used in the manufacturing of it. At Solar Volusia, we have built our name over providing only quality products that are built to last, and built to operate at peak efficiency.
Solar panel technology is most often found being added to people’s rooftops, but there is no reason why it cannot be added elsewhere in your yard if that is your preference. They can basically be put anywhere in your yard where you can construct an angled platform to support them and in an area that gets an abundance of sun throughout the day most of the time. The only requirement is that the panel are of high quality, are installed correctly, and have the maximum exposure to the sun during the course of the day.
Unlike gas, oil, or coal, solar energy is a renewable energy source that theoretically will never run out (hopefully for us anyway or we will all be in trouble!). Each year this technology improves, and Solar Volusia is always on the cutting edge of these technological advancements. The result of this is that consumers like you are able to get more benefits from solar energy at a lower cost. Solar energy is an energy supply that is only limited by man’s ability to come up with new ways to make use of it in a practical way. Daytona Beach and Volusia County residents get as much daily sun year round as most any place in the country, so it is always a wise investment to purchase solar energy products here, despite the initial investment. It is also one of the rare energy sources that has little effect on the environment during operation, and it also has an extremely low carbon footprint when used.
Common Daytona Beach Solar Panel Uses
Although it is more often seen being used on a smaller scale, there is no reason that solar power cannot be used to do such things as power entire homes, buildings, or neighborhoods if done on a larger scale. Other than the uses mentioned above it can is seen being readily used to power such things as landscape lighting, navigational buoys, and even more complicated pieces of equipment like satellites. At Solar Volusia, we have the ability and expertise to install nearly every existing solar technology that is available to Florida residents:
Solar Pool Heating
Volusia county and Daytona Beach area homes can benefit greatly from solar pool heating. Although we live in Florida, a properly installed solar pool heating system can add 2 to 3 months a year to your swimming season. This only makes sense when you consider the value of your swimming pool investment. Why not maximize its use and let your family get the full enjoyment? Solar Volusia's solar pool systems can help you do just that.
There is no need to spend thousands of dollars on electric or gas heaters, plus all of the energy costs to power them, when you can simply heat your swimming pool water economically by using solar powered technology. Water passing through specially designed solar panels can easily pick up the heat from the sun’s energy and deposit it back into your swimming pool. You can even run the solar panels at night during the hottest months which will actually help you to keep your pool at a refreshing temperature in the hotter months, too.
Solar Water Heating
Daytona Beach solar water heaters do a great job of heating up the water that you use in your home every day for such things as washing, bathing, and doing dishes. It is estimated that 30% of your home energy bill is directly related to generating the hot water that you require; imagine if you were getting this done essentially for free what an effect that will have on your home energy bill. Let Solar Volusia install a solar water heater iin Daytona Beach, FL and you will save 75% to 90% on your water heating expenses. This provides a relatively quick payback on your investment.
Solar Attic Fans
One of the best and easiest ways to cool your Daytona Beach area residence is not by continuously adding cool air to your house, but by getting rid of the extremely hot and moist air in your attic that makes your home even more difficult to cool. A solar powered attic fan does a great job of doing this very thing at an affordable price. Once your attic is at a cooler temperature (instead of 150 F it reduces to 95F), this has a significant effect on your homes AC usage, as when that extremely hot air is beating down on your interior temperature, it forces your AC to work overtime. Another great benefit of solar attic fans from Solar Volusia, is that your attic becomes a much cooler place for storage of your personal items, and is not a musty, moist, heat sink. Some of these benefits are:
