Solar heating systems are generally composed of solar thermal collectors, a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to its point of usage, and a reservoir to stock the heat for subsequent use. The heat can also be used for industrial applications or as an energy input for other uses such as cooling equipment. In many climates, a solar heating system can provide a very high percentage (50 to 75%) of the cost of your monthly bill.
Residential solar thermal installations can be subdivided in two kind of systems: “PASSIVE” and “ACTIVE” systems. Both typically include an auxiliary energy source (electric heating element or a natural gas, or propane auxillery source) that is activated when the water in the tank falls below a minimum temperature setting.
-Domestic hot water is the second-highest energy cost in the typical household. In fact, for some homes it can be the highest energy expenditure.
-Solar Water Heating can now reduce your domestic water heating costs by as much as 65%.
-Solar heated domestic water does not pollute or use valuable non-renewable resources. Even the pump to transport heat from the collectors to the storage tank is powered by the sun (depending on the model). Solar energy is a sound investment in everyone’s future, today.
