Solar Thermal Heating (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 21, 2015

This brochure was created by CareyGlass Solar. It explains how solar thermal water and air heating function, and the various technologies that make this possible.

The report details how solar thermal collectors are able to capture the heat of the sun and then pump that energy through a home’s air or water heating systems; there is a diagram to demonstrate this process. From here, the brochure explains how to properly fit and select collectors based on a home’s needs, and whether evacuated or flat plate is the proper collector type.
