Solar Water Heater For a Green Shack
In order to use hot water in a green shack, you must use sunlight to warm it. The best solution that will help you is solar water heated. The design is simple and it operates on a very simple way. The goal is to convert the sunlight and use it for heating water. There are many different models on the market, but they are not very cheap. But, you can make your own version of a solar water heater.
All solar water heaters have one thing in common. Their storage tank is mounted above the solar collectors. The pump isn’t required, which means they are very durable (because the pump usually is the first thing that go wrong). However, if the water stays inside a tank for several days, it can overheat. More sophisticated systems can cool down the water when there is no sunlight. If you made your solar water heater by yourself, you will have to do this alone. You can remove the water from the tank and you are done.
The second thing you must pay attention to is freezing. If you live in very warm climates, where there is no frost and very low temperatures, there is no reason for concern. But, if you live in an area where low temperatures happen, you must protect your system during cold days. If there is no water in the system, it cannot be damaged. When the water freezes it expands, so it will damage components. In some cases (when the temperatures are very low), it can damage the tank. The best prevention is to avoid keeping water in the tank during low temperatures.
