The Basics of Solar Heating
The process of Solar Heating harnesses the energy of the sun (solar energy) to heat any number of things, including a setting or even water.
Passive Solar Heating Versus Active Solar Heating
One kind of Solar Heating, known as “Passive Solar Heating,” does not require any additional equipment to power the process. Passive Solar Heating functions all-inclusively, to collect, house and then transfer heat through a structure.
Another kind of Solar Heating, “Active Solar Heating,” relies on other mechanics (typically pumps) to move material from the solar collector into a secondary stage — either to the area where the heating is required (the room of a building) or to an area where the heat is then stored.
