Flat plate solar collector is the most cost-effective and commonly used kind of solar thermal collector because it can be used to store solar energy for heating water for domestic usage.
Solar water heating is one of the most effective and cost-efficient use of solar energy. Most of the swimming pool require some form of pool heating which can either be for increasing the temperature of the pool during spring and autumn seasons or to maintain a constant temperature throughout the summer period when the pool is frequently used.
Today, lots of effort have been geared toward reducing energy bills. This is the case with most developed countries but most of them still struggle to keep up with this. While we all consider switching off lights and installing energy-efficient appliances as a way to save power, we fail to consider just how much energy the hot water system consumes.
