Canada: Minister of Supply and Services Canada, (OCoLC) Residential Solar Heating Retrofits Adding (retrofitting) a solar space heating system to your home is one way to combat increasing energy costs and to raise your home's market value.

The two major types of solar retrofits are active systems (requiring mechanical energy and hardware such as pumps and fans to distribute heat) and passive systems. This revised edition features the latest design and installation techniques for residential and light commercial hydronic systems including use of renewable energy heat sources, hydraulic separation, smart circulators, distribution efficiency, thermal accumulators, mixing methods, heat metering, and web-enabled control by:   Solar panels are not very useful during Canada’s generally short winter days.

Nor are they very efficient in rainy British Columbia or Newfoundland, or often cloudy and fog-bound Quebec. The biggest problem, however, is that the financial calculations of the cost-effectiveness of residential solar power are based on “ net metering.”.

The retrofit of existing buildings and processes to solar heating of service hot water and of space, and for cooling, has a very important potential for conservation of depletable energy resources and for the reduction of pollution: there are almost million buildings in the U.S., the annual fuel conservation potential is of the order of four quads (about 1/3 of the annual oil Cited by: 3.

This means an AC coupled solar inverter can be between 4, Watts depending on AC inverter type chosen. On the DC coupled array you can also add up to 3, watts of solar PV. This allows for a large array size to add or retrofit. If your solar journey didn’t start with Humless, don’t worry.

This passive solar straw bale house is situated in one of the coldest places in the nation. Gunnison, Colorado, ranks within the top 5 cities with the average coldest temperatures in the United States, yet the insulating properties of the straw bales make this an efficient and comfortable passive solar home.

Today, many people in Canada power their homes and cottages with solar PV systems. The efficiency of solar PV increases in colder climates and is particularly well-suited for Ontario’s climate. In a typical system, a set of photovoltaic modules, or ‘solar panels’, is installed on the roof of your home.

Renovation of Non-Residential Buildings towards Sustainable Standards Acknowledgements This summary is based upon ‘Solar Retrofit’ a chapter, in the book, Sustainable Retrofitting of Commercial Buildings: Warm Climates, edited by Hyde, R, Groenhout.

Solar installations, whether on a residential roof, ground mounted on a acreage, or on commercial roofs, produce power for its owners at costs close to buying utility power now.

If the power is not needed during the day, it can be exported back to Hydro One as part of their Net Metering program, for a credit. Lutron shading systems diffuse light and prevent glare from washing out a computer or television screen. Shading systems also protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces, from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter by using shading systems to deflect or harness solar heat. Recommended Solutions.

Average solar system cost for installed systems using each of the best brands of solar panels in Below are the solar panel costs for systems using the 15 most frequently-installed residential solar panels.

This list also includes the most efficient solar panels on the market, which is likely the reason they are the most commonly-installed. Passive House retrofit is becoming a viable and increasingly common option in Europe, especially for low-rise apartment buildings.

Canadian houses are generally built without good passive design characteristics – they often have inefficient shapes (i.e.

high area to volume ratios), they’re generally not oriented towards the sun or they experience significant winter shading.
