Join us for the fourth article in the series where we mount the panel using a very simple, cost effective and adjustable approach. It’s a quick read with some great ideas for mounting a panel: http://henryranch.net/solar/diy-solar-hot-water-mounting-the-panel/
Article 3 is finally here and we will be going over the solar panel build. This project is starting to take shape with the first portion built, mounted and ready for action. Join us as we go over the major build steps and present some ideas for building a solar hot water heating panel.
In the second article in this series, we will be looking at some basic rules of thumb for sizing a solar hot water heating system. Follow along as we decide to take a modular approach to system sizing and enjoy the benefits of a small system: low cost, fast build time and significant reduction in the propane heating bill!
