About Solar Water Heater
Understanding how your energy bill could be reduced is as easy as knowing the basics of how a solar water heater system works.
- Solar thermal collectors (the solar panels) collect the sun’s heat (thermal solar energy).
- Water is fed from your property’s gas or electric water storage tank and pumped past the solar thermal collectors, heating the water .
- The heated water is pumped back into your tank and circulated by pipes around your property for use.
- If there’s no sun to heat the water, a backup electric or gas booster is connected to your tank maintaining the water’s heat, ensuring hot water is always available.
