Q:Can solar energy be used to cool a home in the caribbean?
Home solar panels can definitely be used to cool your home. There are several approaches to cool or heat your home with solar panels. You can install solar panels to power your ac or heating system directly with an inverter or have the solar panels connected to the grid whereby the energy produced offsets your energy consumption. You can also buy a solar attic fan or solar gable fan that helps vent hot air out of your home sustaining a more comfortable temperature in your home. You can find a selection of solar attic fans in our solar ventilation section of the store. Hot water can be heated with solar water collectors compared to the conventional methods of heating water. For locations where power is not readily available, you also have users setup small off-grid systems consisting of solar batteries, inverter, solar panel and charge controllers, to power small devices or appliances.
