Solar Heating Plan for Any Home

This solar heating plan is a system that works with almost any home. The solar collectors are built into a small, new building, and the hot water storage tank fits into the new building, too. The simple design prevents frozen collectors without complicated plumbing.

Light reflected up off snow will increase the effectiveness of the collectors. To avoid snow accumulation on the collectors, make them vertical (instead of tilted) and add an overhang to the shed.
