What is a Solar Hot Water System and how does it work?
A solar hot water system is an efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective solution for heating water, harnessing the abundant energy of the sun. This system utilises solar collectors, usually installed on rooftops, to absorb sunlight and convert it into thermal energy to heat water which is kept in a hot water tank for use. As a clean, renewable energy source, these systems help reduce your carbon footprint and lowers home energy costs.
As mentioned, solar collectors are connected to a storage tank, typically mounted on the ground or the roof. The heated water from the collectors is transferred to the storage tank via a heat exchange mechanism. In some systems, a circulation pump may be used to move the water between the collectors and the tank. To ensure a consistent supply of hot water regardless of weather conditions, most systems are equipped with a gas or electric booster. This booster kicks in when solar energy is insufficient, maintaining the desired water temperature.
Not convinced that solar is a better way to heat your water?
Water heating represents around 23% of household energy use, but it does not have to! Benefitting from abundant sunshine, Perth homes are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the sun’s energy.
