Solar water heaters also called solar domestic hot water systems can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use — sunshine — is free.. Solar hot water systems are composed of solar collectors, which collects energy from the sun. The heat collected is moved, through a fluid system, from the collectors to a storage tank and from there to the point of usage. The system may use electricity for pumping the fluid, or heat convection, depending on the type. The system may include also thermostats and a controller device to control the operation based on temperature differentials and hot water demand. In most cases a solar water heater can provide up to 85% of domestic hot water.
When choosing a solar system for hot water we must first determine our needs for hot quantity as well as in preferred temperature of consumption. The typical calculation for the temperature for consumption is 45ºC, but for the calculation of required quantity we must take into account the daily needs.
1) Solar water heating systems include storage tanks and solar collectors. Solar water heaters use the sun to heat either water or a heat-transfer fluid in the collector.
2) Most solar water heaters require a well-insulated storage tank. The tank can be a modified standard water heater, but it is usually larger and very well insulated. Solar storage tanks have an additional outlet and inlet connected to and from the collector.
3) In two-tank systems, the solar water heater preheats water before it enters the conventional water heater. In one-tank systems, the back-up heater is combined with the solar storage in one tank.
