In addition to solar pool, power, and thermal systems, have West Coast Heating, Air Conditioning and Solar give your home a complete “green” upgrade with these additional systems.
Solar tube lighting can be a great money saver, bringing natural lighting into your home or business. Installed lights range from approximately $350 to $600, but will pay for themselves over time as you save on electricity and standard light bulb costs. High-grade aluminum seamless construction provides a highly reflective light pipe, which can be up to 18-20 feet long.
The diameter of the tube determines the coverage area – a 10 inch solar light will cover up to 150 sq feet, and provide the equivalent of up to 300 watts. Upgrade to a 13-inch tube, and the coverage doubles to 300 sq feet, with the comparison kicking up to 500 watts. A 21 inch light covers 700 sq feet and delivers up to impressive 1450 watts.
By providing natural sunlight, solar tube lights can improve your health and mindset as well as having zero impact on the environment.
Solar attic fans decrease the cooling load on your air conditioner, increase fresh air circulation and extend the life of your roof. They work only when the sun is out and you need extra cooling of those stifling attic spaces. Most fans pay for themselves in just a few years.
Two fan options are generally available with adjustable solar panels. The 10 watt ventilates 1200 sq feet and the 20 watt covers 1800 sq feet. The environmental benefits are many, with reduced energy needs and lengthened the lifetime of most roofs.
