Solar (Domestic) Hot Water Heater


Solar Hot Water Heaters use the radiant energy from the sun to warm the solar panels. The solar panels contain water pipes that transfer the heated water down to be used in your home.


A Solar Water Heater collects sunlight and converts it to heat.  Circulating fluids transfer the collected energy in the form of heat to an insulated storage tank where it is stored until you need it.

Solar Water Heaters tend to have larger hot water storage capacity than conventional water heaters because solar heat is available only during the day.  Sufficient hot water must also be collected to meet nighttime requirements. A Solar Water Heater can efficiently provide 60-90% of your hot water needs without fuel cost or pollution and with minimal operation and maintenance expense.
