Some of the best brands on the market include Ariston, AO Smith and Viessmann. There are options as to how you set up the solar heating system with panels in each case.
People are perhaps most familiar with the solar hot water systems and panels they see mounted on top of roofs, but there are other variations available too, such as heat pumps that don’t require solar panels, but it converts energy directly into a tank of water to heat it.
The solar flat panels are being challenged in efficiency and use by another variation, called the Evacuated Tube Solar Collector. This has insulation that even allows hot water to stay hot for use at night or the next day. The result is that with the basic electric or gas-boosted solar systems, you will get free hot water on sunny days.
When purchasing solar panels and systems, be aware there are models where solar power connected to the electricity, which in turn heats your normal hot water system or you can have a solar hot water system installed specifically to supply the hot water needs for your home, while the sun shines.
On rainy and cloudy days, when power is not being generated, a typical solar hot water system reverts to using the household’s main power source and draws from the electricity or gas, depending what your house has on site.
There are so many solar systems on the market and they all give you hot water.
So which one is best suited for you?
When choosing a solar water heater you have to consider factors like the total consumption of hot water in a day and how many people live there, whether your hot water use is predominately in the day time or night, and so on.
The evacuated tube technology is gaining popularity for its efficiencies and is worth considering, but ultimately you need to compare what’s available and what suits your unique set-up.
