Sky...

at my house here.. my collectors get real good sun from 8:30 am to around 12 noon then shut off / on / off / on while the sun passes by the large oak tree limbs in my neighbor's yard.

After the sun passes by the tree they'll cycle on/off for another hour or so.. but that's it.

and they're facing directly South hanging on the side of my house.

Thing I keep telling myself and others is that 'anything' you do/build to help save you some money on heating costs and help keep the planet 'green' is better then doing 'nothing' at all.

I'm very happy with the few hours I get because the collectors are pumping nice warm air into my house during those hours.

after that.. they're just house ornaments.
