Practical and Effective Solar Heating
With Professor Tang Lee
Increasing costs of heating fuels and depleting resources is not the major concern. It is the health of the planet and inhabitants that is most important. This one-day seminar will focus on how you can reduce your reliance on polluting fossil fuels and use abundant solar energy to heat your homes. It will examine the many technologies from passive designs, to active solar including concentrating solar collectors. The most cost effective method of using solar energy is to install a metal roof that waterproofs the house but also functions as a solar collector. There are many solar heating technologies that will be presented but the focus is on practical applications.
