Domestic Hot Water Systems
The majority of the Solar Thermal Systems installed by Scotian WindFields and Doctor Solar are for used for pre-heating Domestic Hot Water (DHW). In most residential homes, the Domestic Hot Water system consists of an electric hot water tank that heats municipal or well supplied water for use in your facets, showers and washing machines. Other hot water systems use hot water spacing heating systems like oil fired boilers to supply DWH as well.
Our systems use Solar Panels between your water supply (Municipal or well) and your existing hot water system to pre heat the water, which results in reduced usage of your existing system. (Download the brochure for these systems). Heating of Domestic Hot Water is the second largest user of energy in average Canadian homes after space heating. Using a properly sized solar thermal system can help reduce the your energy costs for Domestic Hot Water by up to 75%!.
