How A Solar Water Heater System Works

Best Solar Water Heater System

How it works….. The best solar water heater system for Florida. There are many types of Solar Hot Water Heater systems but in the Florida the flat plate solar panel that has best performance and therefore most common. The solar hot water panel has prism glass to magnify the sun and inside the solar panel is copper tubing with copper fins that are black (because black attracts and absorbs heat) to collect the heat…. The water  is pumped from water tank to solar collector , through the tubes and down to tank again.. this keeps repeating  until the sun is not available. The pump in our Solar Water Heater is  powered by a small solar PV (solar electric panel) therefore it can produce hot water even when there is no electricity available.  The system also includes a mixer valve that acts like a temperature regulator. If the water is too hot,  the mixer valve will mix hot water with cold water. The solar water heater does include a electric element for times when it is not hot or sunny enough.
