There are dozens of solar energy uses homeowners can take advantage of. While some uses (like providing heat for your pool) may depend on your property needs, there are at least five categories in which solar energy can benefit virtually any family.
Chances are, when you think of solar energy and its use in a home, you think of the power solar provides for running the many devices that keep our lives afloat each day. In truth, you probably use more items that utilize electricity each day than you think! From alarm clocks to phones, microwaves to washing machines, the convenience of our lives depends upon easy and consistent access to dependable electricity. Never is that more apparent than when the power goes out.
With solar power, however, you have far more consistent access to reliable electricity sources. Since solar energy is drawn from the sun, your home has access to energy no matter the weather or other conditions that may create disruption of service. What’s more, solar energy is an infinitely renewable resource that is far better for the environment and less expensive on your wallet.
Solar power can also be used to both pump and heat the water in your home. A nice warm bath or long, hot shower after a busy day can feel great, but can also increase your energy bill each month. With solar power, your home is able to heat water thanks to the power of the sun, minimizing the time and energy required to get your water to the perfect, comfortable temperature for your cooking and cleaning needs. You’ll see the impact not only in your energy bill but your water bill as a result.

If you live in a part of the country where you rely on air conditioning to stay comfortable during at least some of the year, you may also be well acquainted with how running the A/C can raise your bills during the summer. Solar power can provide solutions here as well. Solar ventilation options like solar fans can help keep your home cooler during the summer months and alleviate the burden on your HVAC.
Like solar ventilation, solar heating solutions can help keep you warm during the cooler months of the year. Unlike traditional, portable electric heaters, these heaters take energy from the sun and can be placed around your home to provide an additional boost to your home’s temperature. Some homes also utilize solar power in heating floors or through the forced hot air (FHA) system in their home to keep everyone comfortable without as much of an impact on the environment (or your finances).
In addition to keeping your home running smoothly and comfortably, electricity plays a major role in keeping your home safe. Your home security system and exterior lighting can all be run by solar, ensuring that your home is protected at all times.
