There are many reasons for buying and installing a new solar water heater for houses and other purposes. Many different forms of solar water systems are now available and they all have advantages like easy installation, roof pitch, shading, and orientation.
Types of Solar Hot Water Systems:
- Evacuated Tubes
- Heat Pumps
- Flat Plates
Choosing to install a Solar Hot Water System is among the best financial decisions you can make when it comes to upgrading your house or business, and lowering your energy usage and cost.
The various kinds of solar hot water systems (SHWSs) available, such as flat plates, evacuated tubes, and heat pumps, and the factors you want to take into consideration in determining the best one for you.

The banning of electric storage hot water systems throughout Australia during 2012 has made demanding to understand what systems are available, and which will best suit your home, more important than ever.
Every day your house or company keeps using that old electric storage hot water system, is another day that you don’t gain from the reduced running costs, enhanced property value, and reduced CO2 emissions, provided by a well designed and installed the solar system. Subjects that I’m positive you will agree are getting increasingly more important to us all.
Kinds of Solar Hot Water Systems:
Solar Hot Water Systems come in two major configurations, Close Coupled (tank on a roof) or Split Systems (tank on the floor ). I will also discuss Heat Pumps that are seen by many as solar established technology.
- Configuration Type 1
- Close-Coupled Systems
These provide lower running costs (excluding fostering) as they do not require any power to move the water from the collector to the storage tank, taking advantage of natural”thermosiphoning”. A trade-off is a bulker unit with greater system weight on the roof. By way of instance, a 300L storage tank retains 300kg of water + tank and collector weight.
Split Systems have the collector on the roof and the storage tank located somewhere else- normally on the floor. Split Systems require the use of solar pumps and controls to monitor temperatures and transfer water from the collector(s) into the storage tank.
The first widely accessible Solar Hot Water Systems in Australia were created in Western Australia way back in 1953 by Solar hart, with their flat plate technologies. This became the standard design for SHWSs for another 40 years. Flat plates use a massive collector surface to pick up the Sun’s warmth with water pipes embedded in the collector to move heat. The collector surface is shielded by a sheet of plastic or glass which generally offers little to no rust.
Using a vacuum also gives evacuated tubes organic frost protection, without the need for antifreeze additives such as glycol that can also reduce performance by around 10%, and create ongoing care requirements.
Heating your home’s hot water is on average approximately 30 percent of the whole quantity of energy used by national homes annually, and with the increasing cost of energy now a significant element in household budgets, moving to solar hot water should be on top of people’s house upgrade options listing.
