Choosing a Solar Water Heating System

There are two types of solar water heating systems, active and passive, that pump hot water heated by the sun into your home.

  • Direct circulation systems: Pumps circulate household water through the collectors and into the home.
  • Integral collector-storage passive systems: Made of a storage tank, solar collection tank, and the pipes that run between them, these systems require cold water to be pumped into the solar collector in batches.

To size your solar water heating system determine the total collector area as well as the storage volume you’ll need to meet 90%–100% of your household’s hot water needs.

To properly maintain a solar water heating system check for scaling and corrosion.

While solar water heating systems tend to cost more to install than conventional water heating systems, they can usually save you money in the long run.
