Six U tube collectors with two 450 litre solar storage tanks provide hydonic heating for a 250 sqm house in a Melbourne regional suburb.
The lowset temperature in this area can drop to 0 C in winter. The system provides hot water for hydronic heating and domestic hot water as well. In off heating seasons the heat generated by solar collectors is diverted to a swimming pool. This system saves thousands of dollars in all seasons on the customer’s heating bills every year.
