Understanding Solar Hot Water Systems
Solar hot water systems are a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to traditional water heating methods. By utilising the sun’s energy, these systems significantly reduce carbon emissions and your dependence on fossil fuels. There are two primary types of solar hot water systems available in Australia:
Solar Flat Plate Collectors: This system consists of a flat plate collector, which absorbs sunlight and transfers the heat to a circulating fluid, usually water or glycol. The heated fluid is then transferred to a storage tank for later use.

Solar Evacuated Tubes
Evacuated tube systems use glass tubes containing a heat-absorbing metal pipe. The sunlight heats the metal pipe, which, in turn, heats the fluid circulating within it. This heated fluid is then stored in a separate tank for use as required.
