How Solar Hot Water Systems Work

A solar hot water system is really quite simple.  You’re using the sun’s energy to heat a solar panel collector full of solar fluid (or water, depending on which type of system you install), which then transfers that heat (or hot water) into your home’s hot water tank.

  • When there is sufficient heat to be drawn from the solar collectors, a controller automatically activates the pump(s).
  • Heated solar fluid then circulated from the collectors, through a heat exchanger where its heat is transferred to water in the storage tank.
  • The solar fluid is then pumped back to the collectors to once again be reheated. This circulation loop will continue as long as there is heat to be drawn from the collector.
  • During times when there is little or no sun, you electric or gas water heater will provide back-up heating to provide adequate hot water.

If you already have a solar hot water heating system installed in your home, it is important to maintain it regularly.  Sunworks also supplies solar hot water heating owners with system maintenance services.  Providing your system with proper up keep can help you avoid future system problems.

Solar pool heating is any excellent way to use solar energy.  Here in the Northwest we get plenty of sunny days in the summer when most people are using their pool.

Benefits of heating your pool with Solar

  • Lower operating cost. A solar pool heating system eliminate high, on-going monthly fuel bills by heating your pool with free, abundant energy from the sun.
  • A solar pool heating system can pay for itself in as little as 4 years.
  • Lower maintenance cost. Solar collectors are not effected by pool chemicals and contain no moving parts to break down.
  • Warranty Coverage. A 10 year full, lifetime limited warranty gives you protection and peace of mind long after typical pool heaters warranties expire.
  • Solar pool heating is clean, non-polluting and environmentally safe. Other heating methods consume non-renewable fossil fuels and pollute the environment.
  • Solar pool heating uses no high temperature appliances and requires no on-site storage of volatile fuels.

Extend your Warm Water Fun

A solar pool heating system will extend your warm water fun well into the spring and fall.

  • A warm swimming pool can take you away from the everyday
  • Warm water makes your pool the perfect setting for parties, get together or relaxing.
  • Spend more time in the safety and comfort of your backyard
  • Warm water and regular exercise are a natural fit.

How Solar Pool Systems Work

A solar pooling heating system is really quite simple.  Your using the suns energy to heat a solar panel collector full of fluid (pool water in most cases), which then transfers that heated water back into your pool.

  • Using your pool pump, pool water is directed through a series of valves to the solar collectors.
  • Pool water enters the solar collectors from the bottom and rises to the top through the individual tubes of the collector.
  • As the water rises to the top of the collectors it is heated by the sun’s radiant energy.
  • The water id then returned to your pool to repeat the cycle until your pool has been warmed by the sun.

This is all automatically controlled by the solar pool control.  It monitors pool temperature and sunlight and directs pool water to the collectors when heating is available.  In times of low sunlight a back-up heater can provide pool heating.
