Solar thermal systems are used for pool and water heating. In fact, solar pool heating is the single most cost-effective use of solar energy in many climates, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
While photovoltaic systems convert the sun’s light into usable energy, solar thermal systems generate energy by capturing and amplifying the sun’s heat. Have you ever turned on a garden hose left in the sun and felt warm or hot water pouring out? That’s solar thermal water heating at its most basic level.
Water heated by sunlight can be used for swimming pools, household hot water or even to heat buildings or patios by circulating hot water through radiant flooring systems. Find out more about the solar hot water systems we offer by clicking the links below:
