How Solar Hot Water Works

Solar Hot Water is the most efficient way of heating water for your home. That water is most commonly used for domestic hot water but can also be for heating (hydronic under floor or radiated) or even pool heating.

Solar Hot Water panels use the heat of the sun to heat up water as it travels through the panels or manifold. The hot water is then piped down into a storage tank ready for use when you need it. Any water that cools is piped back up to the panels to be reheated again. Solar Hot Water systems can be gas or electric boosted.

Circulating water during daylight hours keeps the temperature topped up in the tank giving plenty of hotwater when you want it. Our customers tell us that the temperature boost rarely kicks in during spring and summer saving you significant money on gas or electric costs.

Apricus Tube & Heat Pipe Operation

No water passes through the evecuated tube itself, infra-red heat is absorbed by the copper pipe, that energy is transported via conduction to the fluid inside the pipe and up to the manafold, where it is again conducted into the water passing through the manafold. The water leaving the roof can reach boiling temperatures!
