Solar panels are a great way to receive electricity and heat for your home. Aren't they expensive though? I really need to get my heater fixed before winter comes. Hopefully I can get it taken care of soon. I have been looking into radiant heating albuquerque nm for help.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Since this home is currently a part-time residence, it's important that it can withstand extended periods without maintenance. The solar heating system disperses heat into the deep sand bed beneath the floors to keep the pipes from freezing.

Will you have a solar array or rely on wind or geothermal energy? Photovoltaic panels on the roof here harvest electricity, which is then stored in batteries, powering the home’s well pump and other features.No matter what source you choose, backup power is key. If, for example, you are using solar energy as your primary source, what happens when the sun decides to take a hiatus for a few days? Some off-gridders have a natural gas, gasoline or biodiesel backup generator for emergency situations. (Biodiesel is good for those who want to avoid fossil fuels altogether.)

Generating Your Own Power If you don’t connect to a municipal power grid, you’ll need to supply your own power. In a typical home, the average U.S. family uses 10,000 kilowatt-hours a year. Check your electric bill to see how many kilowatt-hours you are currently using, then work with your architect to determine how your lifestyle will change off the grid, and what this will mean in terms of power generation needs. Everyday electric appliances add up: hair dryers, straighteners, irons, dehumidifiers. “Some people don’t consider how much they are tied to the grid,” says Corson. “People with health issues needing electrical appliance support — like an oxygen tank and pump, a CPAP machine or monitors — should confirm backup power supply.”

"P.V. panels on the roof harvest electricity, stored in batteries, powering the well pump and other domestic needs." + "Solar hot water collectors provide domestic hot water as well as space heating by flowing the heated fluid first through a heat exchanger and then into tubing buried in a 2 ft. bed of sand beneath the floor slabs."
