A solar water heater is a device that can be used to capture sunlight in order to heat the water in your pipes to be used for baths, showers, etc. It consists mainly of A thermal panel (solar collector) installed on the roof; a tank to store hot water; accessories, such as a circulating pump to carry the solar energy from the collector to the tank, and a thermal regulator. However, a back-up heating system is required for times when there is insufficient luminosity.
Unlimited clean energy to heat your water
A solar water heater is a device that uses sunlight (rather than the heat of the sun) to heat water. It enables substantial energy savings, as the sun shining on 1m² of roof replaces 100 l of heating oil or 100 m³ of natural gas (approximately 1 000 kWh) a year. Generally speaking, it is possible to heat 50 to 70 % of the water used in the kitchen and the bathroom in this way.
