How do solar water heating systems work work? Solar water heating systems use absorber panels to harvest the sun’s energy. These absorber panels are in many cases installed on the roof of your home or garage. As the sun shines on the absorber panels, water is heated in tubes located in close proximity to the panel system or in a storage unit connected to a conventional water heater. Solar water heating systems give in many cases allow homeowners use the solar source as their main system and the conventional system as their back-up. Optimally placed absorber panels, with conventional methods as a backup will yield you many years of use and dramatically lower energy costs all while lowering your carbon footprint and contributing to a greener world.
