The inner workings of our solar water heaters depend on the exact model, however none of our three models require electricity and they use solar collectors to directly transfer heat from the sun to the water. Using the natural property of water that rises when hot, the hot water pipes will be connected to the top of the solar water heaters and the cold water is supplied at the bottom. We recommend the high efficiency solar water heater to our clients, although we have different models if your project requires an extra robust or more elegant model.
We can design a solar water heating system for you that will cover your hot water consumption and reduce your gas or electricity bill significantly. The optimal size and model depend basically on (1) the number of people in a household and the habits of using hot water, and (2) other uses of hot water such as laundry or cooking activities.
