Photovoltaic systems are true all-rounders, as the solar power generated can be used flexibly anywhere in the household. This also applies to space and water heating that can be used for showering or heating. In this way, you can use a lot of your own solar power and save even more energy costs.
ADVANTAGES OF HOT WATER WITH PHOTOVOLTAICS
Use more solar power
Instead of feeding surplus solar power into the grid, use it yourself to produce hot water. You therefore reduce your energy costs.
Be independent and protect the climate
Make use of your own clean energy supply.
USE MORE OF YOUR OWN SOLAR ENERGY
The electricity that you produce on your own roof is far cheaper than electricity from the grid. In order to permanently reduce energy costs, you should therefore use as much self-generated solar power as possible. Depending on the size of the system, an average household uses 20-40% of its own solar power.
By using surplus solar power for hot water production or heating, you feed less electricity into the grid. This allows you to increase your degree of self-consumption to over 60%. You give away less of your own PV power, have to purchase less energy from the public grid and save money.
SOLAR ELECTRICITY FOR AIR CONDITIONING
Incidentally, it is not just heating, but also cooling with solar power that makes ecological and financial sense. If your air conditioning system is running at full capacity on hot and sunny days, your PV system produces a particularly large quantity of electricity, which can be used to operate the air conditioning system.
HEATING SYSTEM WITH SOLAR ENERGY
Whether you heat your home with a heat pump, pellet heating system, oil or gas, a solar system can support your heating system. Whenever there is a surplus of solar energy, it can be used to generate heat.
This option allows you to completely turn off the heating system during the summer months and not have to activate the entire heating system for a small amount of hot water. This not only reduces your energy costs, but also extends the life of your heating system.
INFRARED HEATING AND SOLAR ENERGY – THE IDEAL COMBINATION
The ideal combination when it comes to heat from solar energy is infrared heating and Fronius Ohmpilot:(example) Infrared heating is very efficient because it is not conventional heating. The fast Fronius Ohmpilot consumption controller can control all infrared heaters with very little electricity. In this way, the device uses excess solar energy
100% renewable energy
How a heating solution with photovoltaics works
In this way, the energy from your own roof can be used throughout the household.
