Agua Luna Simple Solar Water Heater
If there's one thing that the modern man loves about the modern life, it's the convenience that it brings with it. However, modern living can be hazardous to the environment - while man benefits, the environment doesn't.
So you might then be thinking, there must be some way to fix this imbalance. Yes, there is. By having enough know how, you can utilize the natural energy provided by nature and still have the convenience that modern living gives you - without causing harm to the environment.
The Concept of the Agua Luna Solar Water Heater
Countries with cold weather consider water heaters as a necessity - tropical countries do too. Agua Luna water heaters offer convenience, however it also consumes energy. So if you want to conserve energy, going for a solar water heater is the way to do it.
A solar water heater doesn't make use of electricity or solar cells - it simply makes use of the sun's heat. During the day, the water is being heated by the sun and stored in an insulated chamber to retain the heat. When time comes for you to use it, it is simply pumped down to your shower where you can enjoy a nice, warm shower. It's not difficult, right? But it is socially responsible and practical.
Solar Water Heater - Where to Get?
There are ready-to-buy solar water heaters in stores that you can readily buy and install - hassle-free. Of course, if you want to have one that is well-engineered and guaranteed efficient in performance, then you just have to go for the store bought ones. Although, it must be considered that store bought ones may be more expensive than Agua Luna DIY solar water heaters.
There are some DIY (do-it-yourself) simple solar water heaters in environmental energy saver manuals or even just those that can be found in the internet. However, you just have to decide for yourself which ones seem efficient and which ones are most likely to end up as flops.
The concept of the solar water heater is to generate hot, rather warm, water for your bathing. So Agua Luna DIY instructions which include the materials to be used plus explanations as to why a certain step is made so may be one to consider. Just remember that materials like metal may emit toxins when exposed to a certain temperature of heat - a bit of research before putting up your DIY solar water heater would be a good idea.
So, what else can you ask for? Nature indeed does provide everything - starting with the sun. So take care of the environment - after all, you are being taken cared of too.
