Solar water heaters use sunlight to heat water for domestic water heating needs, swimming pools, industrial purposes and more. A solar water heater is the best method for cutting a household's carbon footprint by reducing dependency on fossil fuel usage. It also the most eminent source of energy nowadays. Solar energy is the primary energy source for our earth as it is responsible for providing energy for all life, and providing the warmth that makes our planet habitable.
A regular solar water heater consists of collector, an insulated tank and pipes. There are two types of solar water heating systems: active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive, which don't. Active solar water heating circulates household water over the collectors and in the home. They are working in weather where it hardly freezes. Whereas with indirect circulation systems mix a heat-transfer, non-freezing fluid over the collectors and heat exchange. This warmth the water which flows into the home.
Passive solar water heating systems are typically less expensive than active systems, but they're usually not as efficient. However, passive systems can be more reliable and may last longer. Most solar water heaters require a well-insulated storage tank. Solar storage tanks have an additional outlet and inlet connected to and from the collector.
