We are looking for Dealer's Nationwide for these efficient systems.
Heat TubeSolar water heaters
This heat pipe solar collector has 16 heat pipes with vacuum tubes for each solar collector. In our northern climate, you get about 1 gallon/square foot maximum heating. Our technology uses high efficiency heat pipe technology, so no water flows inside the vacuum tube and copper. This is best for systems where there can be freezing weather. The header of heat pipe contacts the antifreeze solution inside the manifold when water passes inside. This heated antifreeze solution then goes into your water tank where the heat is transferred to the domestic water through copper coils built into the specialized water tank.
Solar Hot Water Tank
Water tanks can be ordered with single (copper coil) or double heat exchanger depending on your need. An electric heater is installed inside the water tank for backup. The power consumption of this electric heater depends on the volume of the water tank.
Electronic Controller: includes temperature sensors, thermostat to operate pump
The Controller will switch on the pump when the temperature at the collector sensor TC is higher than the return temperature TR by at least the pre selected amount.
The pump circulates a heat transfer fluid around the loop. Heat from the collector is transferred to the storage tank through the heat exchange coil.
With the pump running, if delta T is less than preset value, the pump will switch off.
When a preset tank temperature is reached, the controller can switch off the pump.
The check valve (non-return valve) prevents heat from the tank rising towards the collector should the tank be warmer (e.g. at night).
Working Station: includes pump, flow meter, pressure tank and gauge
Solar Heat Tube system
is more efficient than most systems
Simple Solar Hot Water System
The most efficient way to collect energy from the Sun is through heat. Our systems are designed to make the most of the heat coming from the sun, capturing it, and storing, and moving that heat to the place and time that you need it again.
Systems are useful for swimming pool, hot tub, domestic hot water, in-floor heat, sidewalk snow melting systems, and many other uses that use the free energy of the sun to heat water.
Tank Solar Sytem
This system is best for more temperate climates.
This style uses tank over heat tubes that have water flow through them. It is not as efficient and in severe freezing weather cannot be used. It is less expensive than the high efficiency solar heat pipe technology.
Solar water heating systems usually cost more to purchase and install than conventional water heating systems. However, a solar water heater can usually save you money in the long run.
How much money you save depends on the following:
* The amount of hot water you use
* Your system's performance
* Your geographic location and solar resource
* Available financing and incentives
* The cost of conventional fuels (natural gas, oil, and electricity)
* The cost of the fuel you use for your backup water heating system, if you have one.
On average, if you install a solar water heater, your water heating bills should drop 50%80%. Also, because the sun is free, you're protected from future fuel shortages and price hikes.
If you're building a new home or refinancing, the economics are even more attractive. Including the price of a solar water heater in a new 30-year mortgage usually amounts to between $13 and $20 per month. The federal income tax deduction for mortgage interest attributable to the solar system reduces that by about $3$5 per month. So if your fuel savings are more than $15 per month, the solar investment is profitable immediately. On a monthly basis, you're saving more than you're paying.
Tax Deductions and Subsidies
There are different state and national tax benefits and subsidies when you install a solar system. Check with your state and federal laws to check and make sure you take advantage of all the tax benefit and subsidies that are designed to make installing your solar system even more cost-effective.
We Practice What We Preach! Our warehouse uses 14 of our solar panels to heat hot water for use in our in-floor heat.
