Solar water heating systems

Although it may not seem like it sometimes, each square metre of Irish land receives an average of around 3 kWh (kilowatt hours) per day of energy from the sun throughout the year, with higher values during summer or on sunny days, and lower values in winter or on cloudy days. Solar water heating systems capture the energy from the sun and convert it into a form which can be used in homes and businesses.

The main component of the solar water heating system is what is known as a collector. The function of the collector is to collect the energy falling upon it and transfer it in the form of heat to the fluid in the collector. There are many different types of collectors but the majority of collectors are either flat panel collectors or evacuated tube collectors.

Vacuum tube solar panels and flat plate collectors are not a new concept, they have been used widely in solar water heating systems since the 1970s. Kedco's solar collector designs have been thoroughly researched, developed and extensively tested.

Kedco supplies both flat panels and evacuated tube solar water heating systems to both the residential and commercial market.
