With more people discovering the numerous advantages of renewable energy on the environment and their savings, solar-power energy solutions are gaining popularity and acceptance towards sustainable living.
Among the superior alternatives available for an eco-friendly approach are the solar water heaters, also known as the solar domestic water heating systems. Besides being one of the best choices to get hot water for your home and business, solar water heaters are cost-effective. Designed in such a way to save you from high electricity bills, solar water heaters use abundant renewable solar energy as a fuel to heat water for washing, cleaning and bathing.
The choice of heating system depends on heat requirement, weather conditions, heat transfer, fluid quality, space availability and annual solar radiation.

TYPES OF SOLAR WATER HEATERS
Broadly, solar water heating systems are of two types: closed loop system and open loop system.
- In the first one, heat exchangers are installed to protect the system from hard water obtained from bore wells or from freezing temperatures in the cold regions.
- In the other type, either thermo syphon or forced circulation system, the water in the system is open to the atmosphere at one point or other. The thermo syphon systems are relatively inexpensive. They are suitable for domestic and small institutional systems, provided the water is treated and potable. The forced circulation systems employ electrical pumps to circulate the water through collectors and storage tanks.
