Reduce Your Carbon Footprint And Help Save The Planet By Installing Solar Power Systems In Your Home

Global warming isn’t just a gimmick or a money-making scheme. It’s real and it’s happening whether you like it or not. And it’s up to us to slow the process down if we want to preserve our beautiful planet.

What Is Global Warming?

Global warming, also known as climate change, is the observed century-scale increase in the average temperature of our planet’s climate system and its associated effects. In the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate ever recorded.

What Causes Global Warming?

Global warming happens when air pollutants, greenhouse gases and CO2 (carbon dioxide) collect in the atmosphere. They then absorb solar radiation and sunlight that have ricocheted off the earth’s surface. Typically, this radiation would disappear into space but these pollutants cause the heat to get trapped thus, the planet gets hotter.

How Can Solar Panels Slow down Global Warming?

In order to slow down the effects of global warming, we need to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels by using clean energy instead. Solar energy creates renewable power from the sun which is beneficial to the environment. By generating power with solar energy instead of fossil fuels, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically.

So if you haven’t heard about the benefits of solar geysers or you are interested in a solar geyser installation, give us a call.

How Do Solar Geysers Work?

Solar geysers heat up your water through the use of the sun instead of electricity. Located above the absorber glass tubes or flat plate panels, is a hot water tank. Hot water becomes lighter and rises into the tank the moment it heats in the absorber and there is a natural thermo-siphon. And because South Africa has plentiful sunshine, a solar geyser is a practical choice.
