Hot water
A lot of new homes already have solar panels that are used to heat the hot water system.  If you have an older home it is easy enough to have solar panels installed.  Even having solar panels that are only used to heat your water you will still notice a significant reduction in your electricity bills.  You can also heat your pool using solar energy using either solar panels or by having rubber hoses on your roof, which the water to the pool runs through the hoses and warms up in the sun before it gets to the pool.  Solar panels will generate the power that will run the heater for your pool.

Electricity for your home
You can collect enough energy from the sun to power your whole home, which would include running your lights, your appliances such as your dishwasher, washing machine, your stereo equipment, microwave, and also power your computer and television.  Sometimes you may need to use conventional electricity, especially during the darker winter days, but a majority of your power can still be generated by solar energy.

Save money on bills
By having solar panels on your roof you will notice a definite reduction in your household bills.  Your electricity bill will be a lot less than it used to be once you install your solar panels and this is a huge benefit considering the continuing rise in electricity costs.  Putting solar panels on your roof may be costly initially but once this is done you will start to notice the financial benefits as you save each month on your power bills.

Carbon footprint
Adding solar panels to your home will also benefit the environment as well as your home’s carbon footprint is reduced.  Every householder should think about installing solar panels as it is one way that your home can reduce it’s carbon output. You will be relying less on electricity produced in ways that pollute the environment, such as electricity created by burning coal.  Even though it is not expensive to get the coal out of the ground it is costly to our environment.  It is not a resource we can sell cheaply either as coal is very expense to transport.  Looking at other ways of generating our power is a good idea.  Solar electricity will not effect the environment once it is installed, the only pollution created is through the manufacture of the panels, which is minimal, and then when they are transported to your home on a truck.
