Before we delve into who can have solar geysers, it’s good to have a basic understanding of how a solar water heating system works. In a nutshell, the water in solar geysers are heated by sunlight. This warm water rises, which causes a natural convection.
With the above in mind, can anyone have a solar geyser? Below are three popular questions about solar geysers and under what climatic conditions they can be installed.
While solar geysers rely on sunlight, it can be used in temperatures as low as 10°C. Even so, in such extreme conditions the performance of the solar geyser will be less effective. Knowing that there will always be sunlight, which is all that’s needed for solar geysers to produce warm water for your home, you can always feel rest assured.
What about freezing weather? If you live in an area where freezing weather conditions occur, you can install an indirect solar geyser. An indirect solar geyser uses anti-freeze fluid that circulates in a closed-circuit system. The anti-freeze fluid transfers the heat to the water. If this is you, you require an indirect solar geyser.
