Efficient Heating Using The Sun
Solar Hot Water
Solar Hot Water systems convert solar radiation to heat for domestic hot water, space heating, radiant floor heating, or pool heating. This form of energy generation has many applications in your building, translating to large reductions in your energy bill. Furthermore, traditional gas and electric water heaters are powered by fossil fuels, and emit large amounts of CO2. Solar Hot Water systems emit no planet harming C02, but instead generate clean energy for your building.

How A Closed Loop Solar Thermal System Works
Collect Solar Energy
Solar energy is generated from solar collectors. This energy warms a special fluid, mixture of water and glycol, stored in the solar collectors.
Heat Water In Storage Tank
This liquid is pumped down to the solar tank where the heat exchange transfers the heat to the water. This fluid never comes into contact with the water in the storage tank.
Pump Hot Water Into Water Heater
This solar heated water is then transported into your existing water heater. Because the water is already hot, your water heater doesn’t have to work as hard.
The solar station monitors the temperature of the liquid in the collectors on the roof compared to the water temperature in the solar tank and continues the transfer process until the desired temperature is reached.
Hot Water For Your Building
The solar hot water is ready to be used in a wide variety of applications for your building from domestic hot water to radiant heating systems.
