Types And Advantages Of Solar Heating Systems

Solar energy is the most powerful and popular source of alternative energy. It can be used to harness sunlight. Solar energy can be used in various ways and through various techniques. Two major types of solar heating systems are active and passive.

Isolated Solar Gain – A Passive Solar Heating System

Isolated Solar Gain – A Passive Solar Heating System

Isolated solar gain is a type of passive solar heating there no mechanical devices used for the circulation of the heat throughout the home. Solar spaces are used for collecting heat and that heat is transferred to parts of living area by using conductors. These sunspaces have dark colored to absorb the solar heat.
