The Importance of Solar Hot Water Collectors
All solar water heating systems need an effective way of gathering sunlight to operate efficiently. Solar water heating systems make use of solar collectors to supply the sunlight needed to heat water while working in tandem with the system's storage tank. Central PA residential plumbing contractor Haller Enterprises is known for expert installation, maintenance, service and repair of solar collectors.
Types of Solar Collectors
There are several types of solar collectors for solar water heating systems. A flat-plate collector is an insulated box-type device containing an absorber plate and pipes that heat fluid as it passes through. Another type of collector is evacuated tubes, which may be made of glass, metal of a combination of the two. Concentrating collectors work by focusing the sun's energy on a receiver containing a fluid that transfers heat.
The Cheaper Water Heating Alternative
The use of solar collectors instead of traditional energy sources can lead to major savings in household energy costs. Because sunlight is available at no cost, the savings range from 50 to 90 percent. Finding alternative renewable energy sources is critical, and solar collectors offer a practical and affordable solution.
