How It Works

•    Solar heating systems rely on solar collectors to collect radiant heat from the sun, and storage tanks to heat the water and store it until it is need.  There are three main types of solar collection systems:

•    Integral Collector-Storage Systems:  Filter cold water through the solar collector and also into a backup conventional water heating system.

•    Evacuated Tube Collectors: Contain glass tubes with heat collecting fins attached to them to collect radiant heat and minimize heat loss.

•    Flat Plate Collectors: Are the most common type of solar heating systems used for solar pools but can also be used for household solar water heating. Radiant heat is collected and stored within the collectors and used to heat water that is then transferred via a system of pipes, to its source.
