The Typical Residential Solar Hot Water Installation Has 4 Primary Components

The Solar Panels

The typical residential solar hot water heater installation consists of 2 or 3 solar collectors. These solar collectors are installed on the roof and look like skylights when the installation is complete.

The Controller

System controllers give the homeowner real time information including, energy production (kWh) measurements and memory of minimum / maximum collector and tank temperatures. In addition to its primary function of system operation during the day, the controller also provides important diagnostic and safety functions.

The Solar Station

Solar Station is the “heart” of the solar hot water heating system. It controls the flow of solar fluid between the storage tank and collectors. It contains the pump and all valves in a single, integrated, pre-assembled package that mounts on the storage tank or on the wall.

The Storage Tank

The storage tank is where the hot water is stored. These tanks are extremely durable and are designed in accordance with the latest information on energy efficiency, energy conservation, functionality and corrosion protection.
