Solar Water Heaters
Solar water heating (SWH) systems comprise several innovations and many mature renewable energy technologies that have been well established for many years. SWH systems are designed to deliver hot water for most of year. However, in winter there sometimes may not be sufficient solar heat gain to deliver sufficient hot water. In this case electric heater is used to heat the water.
The benefits of solar water heating system:
- These systems use solar energy which is a free and renewable source of energy.
- These systems use solar energy which helps reduce our dependence on fossil fuel.
- In sunny and warm places with high insulation values solar water heating systems are very cost effective.
- Relatively good feedback period.
- These systems have low maintenance.
