5 Ways to Improve Homemade Solar
Water Heating Systems Efficiency
Presented by :
SolarMaxx Solar Energy Solutions
Solar water heating systems are the cost
effective equipment to heat water. In solar water
heating system collectors capture heat from the
sun and used to heat up the water stored in the
tank. There are various benefits of solar water
heater and one can easily enhance the
performance of solar heater by following these
simple tips. Let me explain some important
benefits of solar water heater.
Size of Storage Tank Matters
The size of the storage tank is always matters in
case of solar water heating, because a large
sized storage tank keeps water hot for a long
time. The homemade solar heating tanks are
less expensive with comparison of commercial
one. Another advantage of a big storage tank is
that one can reserve hot water for cloudy days
and use it anytime.
Solar Collector’s Surface Area
The bigger surface area of solar collector’s helps to heat
more water at a time. The homemade solar water heater
builder has an extra advantage over the
commercial solar water heater, because one can
increase the size of homemade solar water collector
anytime with small investment.
One can define the size of surface area of the solar
water heater collector by three ways and increase the
efficiency of solar heating system.
Materials Used in Collector
Homemade solar water heating collector uses
copper tubes mated to aluminum fins and obtain
the best performance in lower cost. The price of
homemade solar heater collector’s tubing fins is
1/6th of the price of commercial one and only
loss approximately 15% in performance.
Insulation on Tanks and Piping is Important
It’s very important to insulate properly because,
well insulated tanks increase the possibility to
remain water hot for a long time in cloudy
season. So when it comes to homemade solar
water heating system, it’s important to insulate
tanks and piping to enhance the performance.
It is very important to set up homemade solar
heating system, where as much exposure to the
sun as possible. So when you locate your solar
water heating system, then choose the area
where fewer obstructions such as trees are
By the following these simple tips you can easily
enhance the performance of your homemade
solar water heating system.
