Very nice write up! Thanks for the info.

What is your home's square footage? How well is it insulated and do you know your ACH?

I'll be installing 200 sq/ft of collector this summer and I've calculated I'll get ~25% (based on past natural gas usage and historical sun information) of my heat in December (worst month) from the solar array. Of course that number will increase as I seal up and insulate the house better. In summer I plan on having more hot water than I know what to do with. I'm planning to mount my collectors at 70 degrees.
