Solar water heating affords us a clean, inexhaustible supply of energy that helps to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
Equinox by Rinnai draws from the expertise of over 70 years experience in designing and manufacturing Hot Water Systems. This allows us to give you a refined range of the most highly efficient quality choices available.
How Solar Systems work
Equinox Solar systems are actually very simple in operation. Solar Collectors mounted on the roof absorb the energy from the sun and heat cooler water that flows through pipes just beneath the surface.
This hot water is then transfered to a storage cylinder ready for use. As you use the hot water, cold water is pushed back into the cylinder and then through the Collector 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 split or ground mounted solar hot water system is where the storage cylinder and the solar collectors are split and installed separately. Equinox split solar hot water systems use a solar control unit which ensures the water circulates via a grundfos pump between the solar collectors and the storage cylinder. This transfers heat from the collectors to the water in the cylinder if enough heat is available from the sun.
