By Craig Axelrod

Anyone who has spent any significant time in the real-estate rental business knows that for any landlord energy expenses are a major concern. Many of these costs are the responsibility of tenants, of course, but nevertheless, lowering these costs would give you a significant edge in the real estate rental market. And there is something you can do to cut a large chunk out of your energy consumption and help to save the environment at the same time. Landlords, cut your bills with solar heating tubes. Solar heating tubes are the most recent development in solar technology, allowing you to harness the power of the most abundant source of energy known to man – sunlight. Recent technological developments have made heating with the power of the sun practical even in locations where the technology was once believed to be impractical, such as cloudy countries and cold climates.

The Benefits of Solar Heating Tubes

We all know about solar panels. They’ve been around ever since 1960s, and we’ve all seen them on roof tops. While they were a novel idea, they were impractical in many ways because they could only create energy when placed in direct sunlight. The design of solar panels also means that some of the stored energy is lost before it can be used. Solar heating tubes correct these design flaws by utilizing a rounded, cylindrical shape which allows them to be positioned so that they receive sunlight throughout the day, thus gathering in more of the sun’s energy. The energy is also stored in a more efficient manner, using a vacuum to insulate the tube and prevent it from losing heat.

Solar heating tubes are ideal for supplying hot water for your buildings, thereby cutting your landlord energy costs. If your property uses radiant heat, you could cut your energy bills even more by using solar heating tubes to warm your entire building. The more solar power you are able to use, the less you will have to depend on other, less economical forms of power. As an additional advantage, your building will have more appeal to an increasingly environmentally aware public, expanding your potential tenant base.

The biggest expense facing any landlord is energy costs but you can stay ahead the competition in this area by heating some, if not all, of your building’s hot water using solar energy.
