Introducing India To Solar Water Heater

Being a tropical country, India receives an optimum amount of sun rays all throughout the year. Considering the number of rays India receives and the need for hot water each year, switching completely to solar-powered electric devices is a viable idea. Solar Water Heater is one of those devices which is helping Indian people to be economically settled and the country free from the ghosts of pollution. The popularity of solar water heaters is increasing on a daily basis. They have made their way with the help of a lot of governmental support, marketing tricks, and subsidies. Let’s dig deep into it and see how solar heaters are helping the Indian citizens one of the best pollution curbers. 

The price of solar heater had decreased considerably, instigating a lot of people, irrespective of their areas, to adopt solar water heaters for their water heating needs. Many big brands, both foreign and Indian have already started to manufacture solar heaters and due to the love shown by Indian consumers, it’s manufacturing itself has started to generate handsome revenues. Since, In India, heated water is generally required for most of the time in the year(around 200-300 days), investing in the project could prove to be one of the viable options. This post could help if you want to invest your money, time and energy in one of the best products tailormade for the future. 

A solar water heater is a solar energy-based system that is normally used to heat water. Installers put up the system in open space or terrace, where it derives sunlight and energy to store it in an insulated tank. On-Off Switch is not there due to the non-connectivity to the electricity supply. The solar water heater can heat up to a temperature of around 80-85 Degrees Celsius. The heated water can be fed to the electronic geyser and thus electrical energy, inherited, would be used for heating up the water, when there are no aspects of sunlight. Since there is no availability of standard products for the said application, a hybrid water heater will be used for the connection facility to the solar water heater through pipes. The same concept would be applied for the hilly regions, where the temperature is down and one can make use of a solar water heater, instead of an electric heater to make sustainable savings on bills and energy. 

India has gotten into two kinds of solar water heating system, namely:-

  1. Evacuated Tube Collectors: These are a category of fragile water heaters comprising of glass tubes. Consisting of vertical and co-axial tubes, a vacuum is created to provide insulation to the water inside. These are basically cheaper are very suitable for sub-zero regions. A ready reckoner of this water heater is it requires cleaning when the water is full of impurities or salty. 
  2. Flat Plate Collectors: They are a tad better due to the presence of metallic systems. These are more expensive than the EPC systems and though they can work in the sub-zero regions, an antifreeze technology is required to save the inside technical architecture.  

The way solar products and companies are catching up with the electrical companies is kind of, worth following. The penetrance of the solar water heater in the solar market will only make the industry stronger and give it a more dynamic touch.
