Right now I'm in the beginning stages of research. One thing I have decided is that the panels will need to be mounted on the ground. It seems like there are a few different ways to ground mount. Which is best? Solid backing, open backing with braces, directly on ground or other? Wouldn't installing the panels over brick provide further heat even after the sun has faded for the day? Would it be damaging to the panels?
Have any of you had Heliocol or Fafco panels and bought less expensive panels later and been just as happy with those?
Because of my location, these will be an owner install, so I'm also taking ease of install into consideration.
I welcome any thoughts, warnings and helpful tips as I confidential to research this topic.
