How do solar hot water systems work?Put simply, the sun heats water flowing through a solar collector and rising to the tank through the thermosiphon process. In a direct system (most common), the water doesn’t actually enter your tank and fill it up. Instead, the cold supply flows through a pipe on one side of the tank, filling the collectors first and then the tank, before exiting out of another pipe on the side to continue its circuit. As it does, it passes through an array of copper pipes and heats them up in the process, which gives you access to hot water in your property as you need.
Renew Energy supply two main types of hot water systems:
Roof-mountedAlso known as a Hiline System, the roof-mounted system has a storage tank that is mounted in a horizontal position immediately above the solar collectors on your roof, allowing hot water to naturally rise into the tank. This design is known as a passive heat exchange system or thermosiphon, which can reduce your annual operating costs.
Ground-mountedAlso known as a Split System, the ground-mounted system has a storage tank on the ground, with only the panels on your roof. While this system uses an electric pump for circulation to fill the storage tank, it is typically preferred in properties where greater flexibility for installation is required.
