SOLAR WATER HEATING
What Is Solar Water Heating
It Is the conversion of sunlight into heat for water heating using a solar thermal collector.
A variety of configurations are available at varying costs to provide solutions in different climates and latitudes.
Solar water heating is widely used for residential and some industrial applications.
Evacuated tube thermal collector
Is a more recent development over the past years over the conventional and more common flat plate collector. They have become more and more popular, particularly since the reduction in their supply costs, their high performance and reliability in cold climates and commercial applications, and of course their attractive appearance.
Flat Plate Collector
Both evacuated tube systems and flat plate solar hot water systems work in a similar manner. The solar loop’s heat transfers fluid (usually a water & glycol mixture) that is pumped up to the flat plate collector . This fluid passes through the inside of the solar collector, where it is heated with the sun’s energy.
