Posted by GetsolarUSA on December 4th, 2012

With the increasing need of hot water to your home, there are several types of solar hot water heaters companies offer different cost effective plans. All systems needs small maintenance, many of them last for 3 to 5 years without any maintenance. Before planting solar hot water heaters system in your home you must be aware of your needs for power, size of your home and the climate in which you reside.

A good professional will only recommend your best suitable plan after analyzing those factors. A flat-plate collector comes in a glazed weatherproof box and contains a dark absorber plate under glass or plastic polymer covers. The one which are most typically used for solar pool heating are unglazed collectors with a metal or polymer top with no enclosure.

The most effective heating system for homes that are in mild or cold climates are Integral collector-storage systems in which feature black tubes in an insulated glazed box. Cold water passes through the solar collector, which preheats the water before it is transported to a more conventional hot water heating system, which provides a reliable stream. The other name of this system is batch systems

There are few more things which one needs to consider while planting the system, whether you want an active solar system, or a direct or indirect system. Active system is more efficient, uses more energy, passive system is less efficient and thus required less energy and less costly too. The places where it rarely freezes, direct system pumps household water through the solar collector which is highly recommended. Indirect systems pump a heat-transfer fluid through the solar collector and a heat exchanger. Indirect solar hot water systems are designed for cold climates.
