SOLAR WATER HEATING

Advantages of Solar over Electric Heaters.
  • No Electrical risk
  • No Danger
  • No Electrical /gas break downs
  • No High maintenance cost
  • No Expensive complicated repairs
  • No Monthly electrical bill
  • 24 Hours Standby Hot Water
  • Hot Water is Always Free

ELECTRIC HEATERS consume a lot of electricity.
Check the energy they used. Its in KW.(kilowatt) not Watt. Please check how much you will save. Its a direct info from Meralco computation

From 3kw to as high as 10KW.
It consumes more than your AIRCON on a per hour basis.
1000w =1 kw.
3.5KW (kilowatt) is like turning 3.5 units of aircons ON for the duration of your bath.

Electric heaters should be used as secondary source of hot water.Not the main source since we have free abundant sunlight here.

ADVANTAGE

  2. Rigid Lightweight Aluminum Frame
  3. Roof Ready 5 degrees Frame(no more cutting to fit roof)
  4. Automatic Water Refill -Zero Electricity
  5. Now with SUPERLIFE Anode to extend the life of themTank(Optional)

How does tube type compare to “flat plate “ type? Other solar water heaters use “flat plate” technology which has been around for many years. It works, but is very expensive, but now there is a better

alternative.

SOLAR WATER HEATERS use state-of-the-art technology based on evacuated glass tubes and highly efficient heat transfer technology.

Flat plate solar water heaters are only at their maximum efficiency in the middle of the day. A great deal of the sun’s energy is simply reflected off the
flat glass panels, especially in the morning and afternoon.

In fact, a solar collector will absorb up to 50% moreof the sun’s energy than a comparably sized flat plate solar collector. Faster heating time means you dont need ELECTRIC BACKUP.It means big savings.Check illustration below

We can use them in cold climate areas like Baguio, Tagaytay or Antipolo.

The tubes consist of 2 layers of borosilicate glass with a vacuum between these 2 layers. This evacuated layer in the tubes acts much like a thermos flask, retaining about 97% of the energy absorbed from the sun. This helps increase the efficiency of the collector and also protects it from the effects of cold air. As a result, an evacuated tube solar collector is the perfect system for very cold areas.The result is an incredibly efficient system to harness the heat of the sun even in extremely cold areas. Because the system is so efficient it does not require full sun and can work in cloudy or even rainy days.

Installation: Installation is easy. Because THERMOTANK systems are lightweight, and comes with all the brackets and frame for the whole system, all you need to do is mount it on the roof. You can expect an average installation to take 3-5hours.

Savings: Take the challenge

1)How much do u think is more expensive?

a) 1hp Aircon x 8 hours a Day x 7daysx 4 weeks OR b) 4 people using Electric water heater for 30mins a day x 7days x 4 weeks

2)How much do you think you pay for your water heating bill.

If you dont have an idea,its ok most people dont know.Go to the pictures and you will see the Actual Meraclo computations.
You will be surprised how much money you are wasting everyday.

Can I use Solar collector with my existing hot water system? Yes, the Solar Heater can be retrofitted to most existing tanks by using their existing hot pipeline.Then you don’t have to pay gas/electricity to keep your hot water hot. Our water are kept warm WITH OUT any electricity in its INSULATED TANK.

What happens if the Evacuated Tubes are damaged or broken by accident? The TUBE is very strong and uses toughened glass which is highly resistant to damage under various weather conditions.Just like your house glass windows, it will not break unless it is intentional and would require a great deal of impact to break it. If tubes do need to be replaced this can be done

quickly and easily for only a small cost. You simply change the broken tube Not the whole panel.

What if the hot water is used up? Our automatic water refill system makes sure it will replenish itself once you use the water. It is a mechanical automatic valve that will open up and use

ZERO electricity.

How many people will the Solar Hot Water system service? Solar Hot Water systems come in a full range of sizes suitable for any domestic installation. From 2 people to 1000 people. The exact size depends on the number of bathrooms and the number of people living in the home. There are types and sizes of systems to suit every home.

Where can I use the Solar Water Heater? For Home-bath, shower, lavatory, laundry, car wash, kitchen, cooking, car wash, pets

Do I need to use special pipes for hot water? We recommend you to use PPR pipes. It is used for the hot water pipe so it can withstand the heat of the hot water. This means your hot water can be available also in the lavatory, kitchen sink,laundry area etc as long as the hot water pipe has a line to those areas and not limited to showers. This is

specially helpful in cold climate areas where water is cold.We can offer the PPR pipes at a fraction of the cost in major stores.

Where else can I use solar water system? It is almost limitless-Home use, resorts, hotels, motels, factories, laundry shops. As long as hot water is needed and you have an idle rooftop, it can be used.

Can i install the solar hot water system in my existing home with no hot water line?
Yes its fairly easy as we will get a new hot water line ourside the house and not inside so the interior remains untouched.The tubes will vary on the length of the pipes needed.

Where do I install the Heater Tank? It can be installed over the roof, as long as the tank is higher than the place where you will need the water.

Do I need water pump? No need for special pump. It uses gravity. This system is the easy to run. As long as water can reach the place where the solar heater tank is, that is enough. Once the water enters the tank, gravity will do the rest for its hot
water line. Its simply very easy to use. No electricity consumed.IN FACT ZERO ELECTRICITY.

Can I put electrical backup in case I need it? Yes, Automatic Digital controller with electric heater backup is an option. It will heat up your water in case you need it. Basically, in 365 days of the year, you can count with your fingers how many days you will use the heater backup. It will not be very often, maybe not at all. As long as the system fits your requirements and the right size for your family, you will never need electric back up bec the stored hot water is enough for your consumption.

How about when its cloudy, do we still have hot water?Yes, cloudy days can still produce hot water,the difference is only the rate of making the hot water is slower, but definitely it will still make hot water.Once hot water is produced,it is stored in the insulated tank,where it stays hot.All it needs is a few hours of accumulated sunshine on cloudy days to heat up the water.

.

Will the 170liter tank(family size type)be enough for my needs?How will i know which one is suitable for me?The water system produces HOT WATER, not warm water, so everytime you will need to use it,you will need to mix it with cold water.So you will not really consume the whole tank but only a small fraction of the HOT WATER to make warm water for domestic needs.The 170liter system is computed for 5-6 people.a typical size family.

What other savings or advantages do we get from Solar Heater?

Every day of every year, you can SAVE 50% on LPG cost for boiling your water for cooking.You can use the PRE-BOILED HOT WATER FOR COOKING,you save upto 50% of fuel (LPG) cost for boiling water for cooking as it will take a shorter time for water to reach boiling point.

Can I use a Hot Water system for my investment property?Yes. If you have an investment property, the Hot Water system will provide your real estate portfolio with a number of advantages such as reducing your property’s gas or electricity bills and can increase the overall value of your property. The usual value added to any property with this modern feature is 3 to 4 times the value of the actual system.
