SolarSwitch offer two types of solar hot water system, a flat plate split system and an evacuated tube split system (suitable in frost prone areas or roofs with limited sun exposure).
Conergy Split System - Open
This system consists of an open circuit solar water heater with roof mounted collector panels and a ground mounted hot water tank. The Open System is designed for frost-free areas. The water is circulated between tank and collectors by a small pump which is regulated by the Conergy Smart Solar Controller.
AAE/Edson Solar Hot Water Systems
AAE/Edson solar hot water systems consist of an inner and outer tube sealed under vacuum, using 2mm glass, the strongest tubes on the world market. The sun’s rays heat the liquid in the heat pipe. The heated liquid changes state to steam and then passes the heat to the recirculating water from the storage tank. Through the AAE/Edson controller, the tank will heat to temperature and protect against frost to minus 15° c. An electric booster will ensure you never run out of hot water.
