Solar Hot Water system use solar energy to heat water. The system is a renewable heating system and no carbon dioxide emission is occurred. This is a great environment friendly and money saving way to produce hot water for your daily usage at your home or your factory. Sunlight is free consequently by using the hot water system your hot water costs will drop once the initial installing of the system. The system requires little maintenance and maintenance costs are very low.
Solar water heating systems almost always require a backup system for cloudy days and times of increased demand. Conventional storage water heaters usually provide backup and may already be part of the solar system package. A backup system may also be part of the solar collector, such as rooftop tanks with thermostat systems. Since an integral-collector storage system already stores hot water in addition to collecting solar heat, it may be packaged with a tank-less or demand-type water heater for backup.
The proper installation of solar water heaters depends on many factors. These factors include solar resource, climate, local building code requirements, and safety issues; therefore, it’s best to have a qualified solar thermal systems contractor install your system.
After installation, properly maintaining your system will keep it running smoothly. Passive systems don’t require much maintenance. For active systems, discuss the maintenance requirements with your system provider, and consult the system’s owner’s manual. Plumbing and other conventional water heating components require the same maintenance as conventional systems. Glazing may need to be cleaned in dry climates where rainwater doesn’t provide a natural rinse.
