The production of domestic hot water is a major expense on the utilities bill of any home or business. You can reduce these expenses up to 70% by using solar water heating systems.
Water heating expenses can be reduced drastically by using the free energy that our houses receive every day. Solar water heating can be one of the biggest energy savers you can utilize. The Costa Blanca is ideal for these systems, where they can provide free hot water all year round.
Solar water heating is a very simple system. Special solar panels, called solar collectors, are installed on a roof or in the garden. These collectors collect heat from the sun and use it to warm up water. This water is stored inside a hot water cylinder. The water stored in this cylinder is directly available for any domestic use.
Almost every house is suitable for solar water heating. All you need is a space on your roof or in your garden of about 3 to 4 squared meters, facing east, west or south.
This is a solar water heating system whereby both the solar panels and the deposit are placed on the roof. This eliminates the need for a pump and other hydraulic elements, thus simplifying the overall installation. These systems can be supplied with different numbers of collectors, depending on how much hot water is needed.
With this solar water heating system, the panels are placed on the roof and the deposit is placed inside the house. This reduces the aesthetic impact of the installation, because there will be no deposit on the roof. Since the deposit may be placed at various locations, it can be located closer to the main distribution points, allowing quicker access to the warm water. These systems can be supplied with different numbers of collectors, depending on how much hot water is needed.
A drain-back system automatically empties and drains the collector(s) whenever the system is turned of, or when the collector temperature stays outside a specific temperature range. A circulation pump shuts itself down and then gravity drains the water to the storage tank and heat exchanger. The durability and the reliability of the system are largely explained by the use of gravity draining water instead of pressure and glycol.
