Upgrade Your Cottage with a Solar Heater
There’s a sort of simple pleasure one can find while in the back country cabin or lakeside cottage. A retreat to the wilderness can oft stir something deep in ones heart and awaken long dormant aspects of the soul that, unbeknownst to all, were yearning to be free. Maybe it’s an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city or the harkening back to a simpler time of self-sufficiency and adventure that nourishes the soul so. Regardless of the cause, to those who feel this calling of nature that draws us to throw off the shackles of modernity and progress and embrace the calm begotten by the rustic throwback to a bygone era, the forest lodge is our Fortress of Solitude, the outback shack our cathedral, the log house our sanctuary.
But do you really want to crawl into your bed covered in mosquito repellent, wood smoke, and either split beer or baked beans; you’re not quite sure which. Sometimes it’s still nice to have a hot shower. So if you’ve got a home away from home away from it all, then why not improve it a bit with a solar thermal heater.
WHY GET A SOLAR HEATER FOR YOUR COTTAGE?
So, why would you want a solar heater on your cabin? For heat of course; heat you can use for hot water, or just to help keep your cabin nice and warm during the winter. A simple solar heater and small solar tank are all you need to heat your water for a refreshing shower after a day exploring the wilderness, or just to clean the dishes after supper. If space heating is what you’re after, connect your solar heater to a hydronic baseboard and take the chill off a cold cottage.
Maybe you’re already heating your cabin with a wood stove or propane furnace, but why continue to pay for heating when the one-time purchase of a solar heater can provide your heating needs for decades to come? Run the numbers yourself and you’ll see how quickly a solar heater pays for itself with the money you’ll save on fuel.
