SOLAR HOT WATER HEATER INSTALLATION – HOMEMADE DIY FRAME
Today is the day we do the solar hot water heater installation with a homemade or diy frame. I purchased a 52 gallon thermosiphon solar hot water heater system for a little over 00 in the city and shipped it out here. You can make a homemade solar hot water heater and I plan on doing that for my small house but for the big one, I want everything to work perfectly without any issues. It consists of a solar hot water panel, solar hot water tank and these copper rods which connect it all together.
Thermosiphon hot water heaters are passive which means once installation is complete it’s essentially hands off. The sun heats up the black panel filled with tubes. As the solar panel heats up the water in it rises and goes through the tubes and into the hot water heater tank. It keeps going as the water gets hotter and hotter and when the sun stops heating, the water stops running through. Since the hot water tank is insulated you are left with hot water, for free.
I’m very excited about this solar hot water heater installation and it’s inspired me to go forward with a solar hot water heater homemade kit at my cottage which is a little bit more rustic than this house aka Alta Vista.
