The use of solar thermal water heating systems has been adopted as the benchmark for sustainable, efficient heating of domestic hot water and space heating. Many countries now mandate the installation of solar thermal devices on newly built homes.
According to Natural Resources Canada, "70% of the energy used in the residential and commercial/institutional building sector is used for heating." Canada, contrary to popular belief, has excellent solar resources. In fact, Canada's solar energy average exceeds that of Germany and Japan - the two leading countries in solar energy use.
The sun's endless source of renewable energy can be used to offset the cost fo heating as well as supply clean, domestic hot water. ProQuip residential and commercial solar thermal systems offer a clean, cost-effective solution for meeting your hot water requirements.
How it Works
ProQuip solar thermal systems capture radiation from the sun via a flat plate collector. A heat transfer fluid (glycol) heats up and is pumped to a heat exchanger where the absorbed heat is transmitted to the water reservoir. The cooled glycol is pumped back to the collector and the process starts over again.
A ProQuip solar thermal system provides you with clean, domestic hot water for showers, laundry, dishwashing, etc..... Our systems are designed for the changeable Canadian climate. Just as a closed vehicle warms up on a cloudy day, a solar thermal collector can utilize the smallest amount of solar radiation to heat the transfer fluid.
ProQuip solar hot water systems can help you save 50% to 70% on your daily hot water heating costs or up to 90% to 100% on your swimming pool heating costs. This does not include the current incentive programs offered through the government of Ontario and Canada.
