How does solar water heating work?
Solar water heating systems use solar collectors to collect heat from the sun and these collectors are fitted to the roof, ideally, where they receive the most sunshine. Alternatively, you can mount your solar collectors on the ground or a south-facing wall. The collectors then transmit the sun’s heat to the water.
