Simple All-In-One Design...
The solar collecting tubes, insulated storage tank and back up heating system is
all here in one unit.. Just plumb in hot and cold supply pipes and provide 20Amps of 110v electricity and your done!
Although having an all-in-one type heater means a bigger unit on the roof, it also eliminates all that extra plumbing, heat exchangers, pump, and remote storage tank. People often think that because they already have a water heater and tank they only need the solar collector.. Then they find they need a pressurized system, circulating pumps and if you are in a cold climate an expensive heat exchanger.. Add to all that the complex plumbing and where is your savings?.. Also you have a cobbled together system that needs to have a pump running all the time to circulate the water.. This is one of those times when starting from scratch with a complete purpose built system will save you hassles during the installation and ultimately will save you money up front and in the long run.
Savings vary widely depending on how you currently heat your water, size of your family, climate, etc.. But you should save $200- $600 year... click for government statistics. That means it pays for itself very quickly. There may be additional tax benefits as well but don't be mislead.. They are difficult to qualify for and if you make more than $3/hr you may not want to waste your time on government forms..
This unit is passive with no circulating pumps eating up your savings.. Heat Pipe technology gives you very high efficiency for the most heat collection per square foot of any common design. The more heat you collect for free the less you will paying for energy.. This unit is one of the best values of energy savings per dollar spent and the up front cost is one of the lowest of any available on the market today.
Save the Environment
Solar water heaters can reduce the load of your electric water heater by almost 2,500 kWh per year, preventing 4,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere annually. This is the equivalent of not driving your car for four months every year!
Advantages of the All-In-One Design.
Most solar companies want to sell complicated systems! Guess why? To make more money on the installs. Anyone who has traveled in China will see these All-In-One heaters on nearly every roof top. That is because they are less expensive and they work.
Less plumbing to connect to separate storage tank, heat exchanger and pump.
Less plumbing means easier install and fewer parts as well as less heat loss from longer pipe runs.
Built in in Freeze resistance. Because the water is stored right at the unit there is no un-heated water exposed to the Winter night. The storage tank has back up heating so even when there is no sun or the unit has been drained at night the back up system keeps the unit warm.. With spit units there is a risk of freezing at the collector. So you need to use glycol pumped through a heat exchanger to keep them from freezing in cold climates.. Also the heat tube technology does not use liquid to collect heat. Simply make sure the supply piping is properly insulated and you are good to 10F.
Rooftop installation means no high pressure system with associated over pressure reliefs valves. Because the unit is All-in-One there is no need for circulating pumps that use energy, make noise and break down..
Electrical heater backs up (110v, 2000w) when there is no sun. Helps maintain desired temperature.
Uses no flame and produces no emissions.
Automatic electronic controller fills the tank automatically and controls back-up heater.
Quality built with stainless steel inner tank insulated with foam and a galvanized steel outer tank. These heaters are used all over China and are the real deal not a novelty item or a cobbled together system.
Heat Pipe Tube collectors are state of the art in efficiency.
Light is captured by glass tubes from a wider angle than older style collectors. This means they are collecting heat for more hours per day. Heat is transferred to the storage tank by copper rods that operate at very high temperatures. Individual heat tubes contain no fluid and can be individually replaced if broken.
