Solar Hot Water
HOW SOLAR HOT WATER WORKS
Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays in the roof mounted solar collectors and transferring this to heat water stored in the tank. Ground mounted direct systems (Loline) rely on an inbuilt circulator to push the water through the system, whereas roof mounted systems (Hiline) rely on a natural ‘thermosiphon’ effect. Water passes through the solar collector where it is heated, then moves out of the collector and into the tank. The tank gradually gets hotter until the water reaches its maximum stored temperature.
The Rheem Solar Hot Water Heaters range to suit you needs, including both split, ground mounted systems and complete roof mounted models in a variety of capacities from 160-410 litres.
