30/04/2019

Solar water heaters use solar energy instead of electricity or gas to heat water, thereby reducing monthly utility bills. If properly installed, solar water heaters are more economical throughout the life of the system than electric heating water, dedicated heat pumps, heat recovery units or propane.

Solar water heaters are typically described in terms of the type of collector and circulation system.
