A Residential Case Study: An Innovative Installation in Backyard
 
 

 

  Where temperatures are not likely to drop into the freezing zone, many evacuated tube solar collectors are made with an integrated storage tank at the top of the collector. This design has many advantages over a system that uses a separate standalone heat-exchanger tank. With the tank separate, you are required to operate solar controllers, water pumps, expansion tanks, etc. All this extra equipment can greatly increase the cost of the system. The separate heat exchanger tank can also be the single most expensive component in your system.

With the tank included in the design, water flow is controlled via your standard household water

 
         
  With the tank included in the design, water flow is controlled via your standard household water pressure. The reduction in electronics not only reduces the cost but also reduces failure points and operational complexity.
