A solar air collector may be used to harness the sun’s energy through the use of a suitable absorbing medium to heat the air. The air collector can be used for either industrial processes or space heating.
A heat transfer fluid plays a vital role in the operation of solar water heating systems. It carries heat energy from the solar collectors through the heat exchanger and finally into the tanks that store the heat.
Many commercial solar panels can be very expensive, but people may opt to make their own solar panels at home. Learning how to make a solar panel can also teach people some basic concepts that will allow them to better understand how solar panels work.
