Solar Panel For Home Water Heater

What is Solar Thermal System?

Solar water heating (SWH) converts sunlight into heat for water heating using a solar thermal collector. Getting a solar water heater for house is a significant first step to your renewable energy journey! A solar water heater for home can save you money in the long run. How much money you save depends on the following:

  • The amount of hot water you use
  • Your system’s performance
  • Your geographic location and solar resource
  • The cost of conventional fuels (electricity)
  • The cost of the electricity you use for your backup water heating system​

Your solar water heater for house bills should drop 50%–80%. Furthermore, the sun is free, protecting you from future fuel shortages and price hikes. A solar water heater for home is a worthy investment for overall sustainability and reliability.

Types of Solar Water Heating System

Thermosiphon Systems
These systems heat water or an antifreeze fluid, such as glycol. The fluid rises by natural convection from collectors to the storage tank, which is placed at a higher level. No pumps are required. In thermosiphon systems, fluid movement, and therefore heat transfer, increases with temperature, so these systems are most efficient in areas with high solar radiation levels.

Forced-Circulation Systems
This solar panel for home water heater pumps water from storage to collectors during sunny hours. The storage tank can be located in the ground or pump room. ​

Forced Circulation System

  • Solar panel for home water heater is designed to harness sunlight for thermal energy (heat). This heat is often used for heating water in homes, businesses, and swimming pools and heating the insides of buildings (space heating).
  • As the water is pumped through the collector, the solar thermal collector will transfer the heat from the sun to the water to be heated. The heated water is pumped out of the collector and through a storage tank or a heat exchanger.
  • Heat exchangers usually comprise copper and are normally inside a solar storage tank.
  • The storage tank is an essential element of any solar thermal system, as it allows all the heat generated by the solar thermal collector to be stored for use whenever needed.
