Survival Day 4 (Solar Water Heater Panel)

There are certain bits of technology that we have just been completely spoiled by. Readily available heat and hot water is a big one. Want to see how badly you will them? Go find a cabin to rent that has no power and no heat.  You would think it would be easy to stay warm but we are so coddled in our everyday lives we have no idea how var the tempature can drop when the sun goes down and the winds start to pick up, sucking every last bit of warmth through any crack or crevice. Now chop some wood and get a little stinky. Boy will you miss a shower. A bucket bath, even if you get that water nice and hot, leaves you shivering by the time you are done.

Which is when you will realize that these Solar Water Heater Panels are exactly what your house or cabin needs. If you are on the grid you’ll save money by raising the water temp in your tank so the hot water heater only has to lift it the final degrees to your target temp and if you are completely off grid this water will feel good no matter what – because there won’t be ice chips floating in it.

My recommendation is to get four panels per bathroom and one extra per sink – but I’ve come about those numbers through completely half assed anecdotal research. So start with one if you want and work your way up until you have enough hot water while also remembering they won’t be as effective in the winter – so you may need more panel coverage when its cold out.

Because after a hard day of killing the undead there is nothing better than a nice warm shower to wash the gore off.
