Pressurized Passive Solar Water Heater with Connected Tank
Passive solar water heaters use vacuum tubes with heat pipes and an Connected water tank for direct heating of potable water. Sunlight enters the tubes, converting into heat at ~94% efficiency, and is then carried up all over the warmth pipe to the manifold which heats the water within the Connected water tank. Water is supplied on the inlet from city/well water, heated and then fed immediately into the brand new water plumbing of the building.
This unit includes an electric backup water heating element and a TK-7Y controller. The passive solar water heater controller is used for timing of the backup water heating and display of the tank temperature. Settings on the controller be in agreement prevent heating water when hot water is probably not needed, such as in all places 4 inside the morning. This gives the user the facility to easily use electrical backup heating when it may be needed, thus giving the sun a chance to replenish heat.
These heaters are very popular for use in southern parts of The us. For applications in more northern regions where freezing isn’t abnormal, it is best to utilize split active solar water heater systems.
This unit heats the domestic water immediately. The tank’s hot water outlet connects immediately to the home hot water tap.
