Solar Hot Water Systems for your roof
Solar water heating utilises a clean, inexhaustible supply of energy that helps to significantly reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
Rinnai draws on over 75 years experience in designing and manufacturing Hot Water Systems. This allows us to give you a extensive range of the most highly efficient quality choices available.
How Solar Systems work
Rinnai Solar hot water systems are very simple in operation. Highly efficient solar collectors installed on the roof of your home absorb solar energy from the sun and heat cooler water that is flowing through pipes just beneath the surface of the collector.
The heated water is then transferred to the storage cylinder ready for use. As you use the hot water, cold water is pushed back into the cylinder and then through the collectors for heating.
To ensure that there is always hot water for those days that are cloudy or raining, the addition of either an electric or gas booster completes the system.
A Roof mounted or close coupled solar hot water system is where the storage cylinder and the solar collectors are coupled together and the installation is on the roof. Rinnai roof mounted solar hot water systems use the thermosiphon principle (when water is heated it becomes less dense and therefore rises) to circulate the water through the collectors and then into the storage cylinder without the need of a pump.
