The solar collector is a device which absorbs light energy of the sun and will transform it to heat. Heat collects under the glass panel in an absorber and heats liquid heat carrier which, in turn, heats water for water supply or heating.
Solar collectors can be applied practically to any economic needs where heat is required:
- for autonomous hot water supply;
- as the main or additional heating of premises;
- for heating of outdoor and indoor pools;
- for heating of greenhouses, production rooms.
Advantages of solar collectors
Today solar collectors are the most effective devices working at solar energy. Their efficiency reaches 90–95%.
Solar collectors are safe for human health and the environment as they do not make harmful emissions.
But their main advantage — profitability. Having established a solar collector, you will lower by 90% annual charges on hot water supply. Economy on heating can reach 30% depending on the region.
