Commercial Solar Thermal Systems
Solar water heaters - also called solar domestic hot water systems - can be a cost effective way to generate hot water for any building. A well-insulated solar storage tank will have an additional outlet and inlet to be connected to and from the collector. The solar collector preheats water before it enters the conventional water heater. This initial heating of cold water is the most energy consuming step in a conventional water heating process. Putting a solar water heater in place to fulfill this part of the process can save up to 70% of a building's water heating costs. ProQuip is a leading EPC provider and supplier of solar thermal systems in North America. Our German engineered technology is tried, tested, and true and offers an attractive, safe, and reliable solution.
How Does a Solar Thermal System Work?
A solar collector is used to capture solar irradiated heat transfer fluid inside the collector. This fluid is then pumped to a heat exchanger and absorbed heat is transmitted to water or a heat circuit.
How Efficient is it?
Your solar thermal water heating system will make the best use of whatever sunlight is available. ProQuip high efficiency collectors utilize even the smallest amount of solar radiation, which means the sun does not have be shining brightly for the system to produce heat. Up to 70% of annual hot water requirements can be met with a ProQuip solar thermal system.
Where Can I Use it?
ProQuip solar thermal systems are used for domestic hot water used in washrooms, kitchens, laundry facilities, etc... A solar thermal system can also be used for space heating and for pool heating.
