Solar water heating an option for big families As the solar thermal market grows so too do the number of entrants offering inexpensive options for solar water heat- ing systems. Solar water heating offers quicker paybacks to those who have both high use pro- files and a longer term demand outlook such as hav- ing a young family. The most common solar heating applications use glazed flat panels or evacuated tube systems for home hot water heating. Understanding your needs and ensuring the correct siz- ing of your system is an important starting point. While every home requires an individual feasibility review, in general families of three persons or more or with monthly power bills in excess of $300 are encouraged to have a serious look at a SWH solution to reduce energy costs. For those with a low user profile, monthly bills under $150 or with low cost alterna- tive heating, switching to solar may be an ethics-based choice rather than financial. Building a new home, reno- vating or replacing a cylinder offers a cost effective oppor- tunity to invest in a solar sol- ution. Installing a solar ready cylinder when your old cylin- der gives out provides the option to upgrade to a full solar system in the future. Depending upon the sup- plier, installing a solar ready cylinder versus a traditional electric one will cost you more. Stainless cylinders, highly recommended for long term solutions and hybrid solar configurations generally cost slightly more. Future-proofing your home in this manner also increases its value as is already being recognised by real estate com- panies and a rapidly increas- ing number of discerning home buyers. You can source indepen- dent advice at consumer.org. Warming your swimming pool with solar is also an option. Exercise good for the brain -- study People who exercise later in life may better protect their brain from age-related changes than those who do not, a study sug- gests. Researchers found that people over 70 who took regular exercise showed less brain shrinkage over a three-year period than those who did little exercise. Psychologists and neuroimag- ing experts, based at the Univer- sity of Edinburgh, did not find there to be any benefit to brain health for older people from par- ticipation in social or mentally stimulating activities. Greater brain shrinkage is lin- ked to problems with memory and thinking and the researchers say their findings suggest that exer- cise is potentially one important pathway to maintaining a healthy brain both in terms of size and reducing damage. The researchers also examined the brain s white matter -- the wir- ing that transmits messages round the brain. They found that people over 70 who were more physically active had fewer damaged areas -- visible as abnormal areas on scanning -- in the white matter than those who did little exercise. Additionally, researchers found that over-70s taking regular exer- cise had more grey matter -- the parts of the brain with nerve cell bodies. The Edinburgh team used MRI scans to measure the volume of brain tissue and the volume and health of the brain s white matter in the almost 700 people they studied. Researchers studied levels of physical activity which ranged from moving only for necessary housework to more strenuous forms of exercise such as keep-fit or taking part in competitive sports. Scientists also recorded whether or not the participants, all aged over 70, took part in men- tally stimulating activities such as reading and participating in social groups. Our results suggest that to maintain brain health, physical activity may be more beneficial than choosing more sedentary activities, says Dr Alan Gow of the University of Edinburgh, who led the research.
