Adding solar heat to my home

I finally have 1 of the solar heating panels installed temporarily. I am testing to see if it is worth putting a permanent hole in my house. The panels were installed onto of a roof. My past neighbor in St. Louis did not want to pay to have them removed and re installed. It seems they add a great deal of added cost to replacing your roof. So I will not put them on my roof. I will build a box like structure on the ground or place them more up right to the house. But for now I will see what they will do like this for this winter.
 Each month I will keep a log of temperature inside the house and out. and hours of sun hitting the panel.
