Solar Heating in Shreveport, LA by Hall's Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration

Using the sun to heat one’s home may sound obvious. The fact is, though, that many modern homeowners are far more dependent upon electricity and fossil fuels than they are the sun’s energy when it comes to heating a home. At Hall's Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, we suggest that homeowners consider solar heating to make it through the colder times of the year in great comfort.

Solar heating has a number of benefits to offer, and the use of solar energy for heating a home is really quite simple. That being said, you must still enlist the help of trained, experienced professionals if you think that solar heating in Shreveport, LA, and the surrounding areas is right for your home. We’ll assess your property and outfit your home with the equipment necessary to heat your home with the thermal energy beating down on us every day.

Hall's Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration provides solar heating installation, repair, and maintenance near Shreveport, LA and the surrounding areas.

Active vs. Passive Solar Heating

Once you’ve decided that heating your home with the use of solar energy is a good fit for your sensibilities, the next step is to determine just how you will collect this solar energy and put it to use. In a passive solar heating system, the design of one’s home is really what does the work. South–facing windows, for instance, can act as solar collectors, and simple convection allows for the heat to reach colder areas of the home. For most homeowners, though, the reliability and control of an active solar heating system is more enticing.

With an active solar heating system, solar energy heats either liquid or air within the collector, and this heat is then either put to use right away by a distribution system, or it is saved for later in a storage system. This allows for some peace of mind during the chilly times when there is just not much solar energy to be had. Typically, liquid–based solar heating systems are the better option for central heating.

Such systems will use flat plate collectors or, in some cases, tubes containing the heat transfer liquid, in order to harness heat. This type of system can be paired with a number of heat distribution options, including radiant systems, hot water radiators, or absorption heat pumps. Regardless of the specifics of your particular solar heating system, one fact is the same across the board: you must schedule professional services.
