The optimal orientation is just one of many aspects required for correct position; in fact they also affect factors such as the cones of shadow that may limit the energy production of own photovoltaic system.
When they place some photovoltaic panels it is possible that it generates a problem, very annoying, known as solar dazzlement. It is created by the orientation and inclination of the photovoltaic panels, it can cause a light reflection which can be dangerous for healthy. The phenomenon happens with more frequency the more large it is the panel surface.
It is normal that this type of light pollution has to be eliminated or at least reduced.
Thanks to technological progress achieved in the last times, the photovoltaic panels provide excellent performances with a reduced price; moreover, they are easily inserted in the buildings and in the outdoor structures.
Instead, for the illumination of the outdoor environments, such as for example the gardens, there are still some aspects that do not allow their maximum efficiency; It is necessary, therefore, to take some precautions that allow the use of photovoltaic panels in these places.
On basis of the outside environments it could be necessary to choose between different models so that they have a high energy yield. Among the most innovative solutions there are certainly LED recessed lights with integrated photovoltaic panels; they are very adapted for light paths and their costs, both of purchase and of installation, result very moderate. The maintenance is low because possible malfunctions are rare events. Moreover, they are flexible in the case of reset in other places.
When, instead, it is not possible to use recessed lights, in alternative, it can use the photovoltaic street lamps, equipped with LED lighting with photovoltaic integrated panels for island installations, and in addition provided with lithium batteries to conserve the produced energy.
When the spaces inside the house are very small such that it cannot allow the installation of classic radiators, wood stoves or heathers, it is possible to solve this problem with the installation of heating systems in the floor or wall, invisible and not cumbersome, ensuring in the same time efficiency and home-comfort.
The under-floor heating systems are hygienic. The invisible installation means that it should not constantly worry about the cleaning of the areas behind the radiators or the exposed pipes. The system does not raise dust, and it is therefore the heating system more suitable for allergy sufferers. The delicate warmth created by the radiant heating systems acts directly on the body, without the intermediate stage of the room’s heating air.
Apart from this there are other electric heating devices to radiation, whose installation does not include any water-pipe but a series of conductive elements that works thanks to the electricity; moreover for installed floor systems, the radiation of the environment happens uniformly, ensuring greater feeling of well being.
The floor heating is useful both in civil environments and in public buildings, and the possibility to connect to installations for the electrical energy production from renewable sources also implements the possibility to drastically reduce the consumption for electricity and heating.
