A solar hot water system is in fact, a solar energy system which makes use of solar energy efficiently to heat your domestic hot water. a solar electric system makes use of solar panels to collect solar energy.
Similarly, a solar hot water system uses panels to collect energy.
This unique hot water system contains a water-based fluid which carries the collected solar energy and makes a downward movement to reach your hot water tank.
The best part of a Solar Hot Water System is related to the fact that the water-based fluid they use doesn’t mix with water but still, makes a perfect transfer of solar energy into your hot water supply.
This entire transfer process taking place in the system is carried out by a device called the heat exchanger.
