Explain the functioning of the solar house heating system?
Solar house heating:
Complete solar house heating systems are successfully used in areas with a minimum amount of sunshine in winter. A heating system consists of:
- A collector
- A storage device
- A distribution system
Working on solar heating system:
A Solar solar collector is made of glass panels over blank metal plates. The plates absorb the Sun's energy which heats a liquid flowing in the pipes at the back of the collector. The hot water can be used for cooking, washing, and heating the buildings.
Uses of solar energy:
Solar energy is used in solar cookers, solar distillation plants, solar powerplantst, etc.
