Beyond what we know about solar panels as an energy alternative in the home, there are many more options that allow you to save on electricity consumption in order to self-supply and do your bit for the environment.
At WeRelocate BCN we explain what the main renewable energies are that increase energy savings in your home.
Nowadays we have several energy-producing options available to us for use in our home, which will help us to reduce electricity bills. These include:
This is perhaps the best known alternative for supplying electricity at home. The installation consists of solar panels with an inverter and the corresponding structure needed to place it on the roof. It is important to check the monthly consumption in order to choose the installation that provides power that is appropriate for our particular energy needs.
Solar thermal energy
Very similar to the installation of solar panels, solar thermal energy is mainly used to heat water. Similar to other renewable energies, it depends on the geographical location and the efficiency of the solar panel installed; it is an investment that pays for itself in the long term.
There is an alternative for domestic use wind turbines that are also installed on the roof of a house and for which strong winds are not necessary to harness the energy. In places where wind can be harnessed, between 80% and 100% of a household’s electricity needs can be covered.
Extracted from organic matter obtained from waste such as fruit, olive stones or wood chips, biomass heating works like any other type of boiler. Among the different types of biomass boilers, there are pellet boilers and polyfuel boilers.
The most important thing is that we can choose different alternative energies to be able to cover all our needs, as the energies can be combined with one another. It is best to go to a professional who can tell us which is the most suitable choice for us according to the characteristics of the location and the type of home we have.
