How Does Solar Hot Water Work?

So, how does a solar hot water system work? Simply put, solar collector panels on the roof of your home will harness the sun’s energy, converting it into heat energy that warms your water. You could also have solar panels converting the sun’s energy into electricity for the home.

Solar hot water technology really does not work too differently to other solar systems. However, you are more likely to have an all-in-one system where the panels are directly connected to a storage tank. Hot water heating therefore relies on the output of those panels.

There are two main types of solar collectors: evacuated tube and flat plate collector.

Evacuated tubes are glass tubes containing a copper pipe (heat pipe) that assists in transferring heat energy from the panel to where water is stored. An evacuated tube is incredibly reliable as direct sunlight is not necessary, making it suitable for a range of Australian climates. The size of the panel depends on how many individual tubes are connected together. Typically these solar hot water systems have a ground mounted storage cylinder.

Flat plate solar collectors, meanwhile, are large panes containing copper pipes. Sunlight directly heats each collector on the roof space, and heat energy is thermo siphoned through the copper pipes and into a roof mounted storage tank.

Most solar water heaters are also paired with a gas or electric booster. The booster element is a secondary continuous flow system, or incorporated into the storage tank, providing consistent hot water all year round. Even if there is not enough sun, an electric or gas booster will kick into action.
