Solar water heater repair & installation
Solar water heater repairs and installation has never been easier with Plumbers of San Diego. We understand all the working components of solar water heaters and will use these skills to assist you with your needs.
When installing a new solar water heater, you want to choose the type that best fits you. The flat plate collector (FPC) is the model that will be more durable and have a longer lifespan as it is plated with metal whereas the evacuated tube collector (ETC) has glass components and will not be as durable. Thus, it will not last as long.
However, the most basic interest in both these styles of solar water heating is price point. The FPC will be more expensive than the ETC which can usually help a residence decide which model they would like to have installed.
Solar powered water heaters work by having a bunch of solar panels lined together in direct sun light, usually with an openning terrace or sky light opening. These solar panels convert the energy to the insulated tank where hot water is stored and held.
