Heating your home with a solar water system can help you save a significant amount of money.
There are two major types of solar water heating systems: active and passive.
Active systems utilize solar energy to heat a fluid and transfer the solar heat directly to the interior space or to a storage container for later use. The system composed of five elements including a collector that capture solar radiation, a pump to activate fluid circulation, a storage tank for the hot water storage, a back-up water heating system for use when existing hot water runs out, and a control system to regulate the overall operation. Active solar heating systems are most cost-efficient in cold weather with sufficient amount of solar resources.
Unlike active systems, passive solar water heating systems rely on natural convention to circulate the fluid. They tend to work best in areas where the temperatures rarely fall below freezing since passive systems become less effective under cold weather.
Overall, you can never go wrong with a solar water heating system. It can be a more cost-efficient way to generate hot water for your house since they are fed by sunshine, which is free.
