High temperature technologies allow people to use renewable energy sources in order to heat up water and to heat up homes.
Heating Up Water
One of the main concerns when it comes to renewable energy is that people don’t want to worry about having the luxuries they’ve come to expect – like hot water. Some fear that if they were to switch to solar energy, they would not be able to have that long hot bath they enjoy. But with high temperature technologies, the water can be heated up as it is needed, helping to give you that hot shower or bath whenever you like it. You might also use a recirculation system for the water in your home, helping to conserve it as well as keep it nice and hot for the things you need to do – laundry, washing dishes, etc.
Heating Up the Home
Other high temperature technologies can help to heat up the home and to provide electricity.
- Geothermal energy – This is used to help create steam which can then create electricity for the home or other building.
- Wood pellets – Using biomass, this heating system works to help the home warm up.
- Radiant heating – Using or reusing the hot water from your home, you can warm up the home without using up any more resources.
- Heat pumps – By moving heat from one area to another, you can have all the heat you need.
With these high temperature technologies, you don’t have to change your lifestyle in order to use renewable energies. You just need new methods to help you warm up your life.
