The sun is a very powerful energy producer. In fact, our ancestors have harnessed the power of the sun for water heating purposes since before the 1900s. Known as the “Sunshine State”, Orlando is the perfect place to own a solar water heater. A solar water heater has a mirror to direct sunlight onto the collector, heater and storage tank. The “open loop” solar water heater works by pumping drinking water from your storage tank to a mirrored collector on your roof. Once the sunlight is sufficient, the heat is transferred down and enters one or more copper pipes in the collector where it circulates through the tank while heating potable drinking water. If there is not enough sun, a microwave element activates that livens up any remaining cold water in storage tanks.
