Designing your new home

Posted on March 28, 2022 at 9:21 am

Designing and updating the inside of your home is of particular importance to your home and its value. It presents an excellent opportunity to maximise space, create spaces suitable for different functions, and create features that make everybody who sees it go “wow”. It also helps you to create the atmosphere you desire within your home.

When you decide upon the style of your home should be part of the decision process. Most modern styles rely upon abundant space and light, so not cluttering, and rooflights play an important role in any contemporary interior design. When designing a Spartan-like design theme for your home, you must focus upon the little details of your home; otherwise, you end up with empty space without any character or appeal. For a more rustic charm, using wood and deep colours is an option for developing your interior design.

Can I use my solar panels at night?

Posted on March 1, 2022 at 3:33 pm

The answer to this is yes and no! Solar panels do not work at night; however, you can store the energy you have generated throughout the day into the battery pack. This will enable you to continue having power when there is no sunlight.

Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells which convert sunlight into electricity. They need at least a small amount of sunlight to work. Although the moon does provide some light on cloudless nights, this kind of light cannot be used by solar panels.

As you cannot rely on energy from your solar panel at night, you have two options. Store any excess energy generated throughout the day or purchase your electricity from the national grid.

For those who wish to know if there are any solar panel available that work at night, a research team in Mexico have been working on creating a solution. They say they are close, but they will not be available commercially for a while yet.
