Building Progress ~ June 2009

Category: Barn Conversion Journal July 14th, 2009 by mbc

So, June…

Tiling two bathrooms, both floor and shower enclosures has taken far longer than I predicted but on the whole I’ve enjoyed the work and the end product should be okay.

The main progress this month has been in getting the solar panels and heating system up and running. It all went pretty smoothly with the panels kicking in when powered up and getting the water in the accumulator up to around 40 degrees Celsius after a few hours. So far, even on a dull day the water is kept at a constant 40+ degrees, raising to 60+ on a sunny day – pretty satisfying. The simplicity but efficiency of the technology is very attractive – when the water in the accumulator is cooler than the panel then the pump kicks in and circulates the water, thus heating it. Once equilibrium is reached the pump switches off until either the water cools or the panel heats up… simple.
