What is passive solar water heater?

Passive systems do not use a pump to circulate water from the collector to storage or other locations. They employ three means:  gravity, the tendency of hot water to rise above cold water and water pressure.

Passive solar water-heating systems can be categorized as either direct or indirect. A direct passive solar water-heating system is the simplest. The crudest form of direct passive solar water heating is to paint a water storage tank black to absorb heat into the water. Such systems were employed in the past at summer campgrounds where facilities were mostly used during warm, sunny periods of the year. These systems must be drained dry at the end of the season to avoid damage from freezing.

Passive Solar Water Heating Systems

Passive solar water heating systems are typically less expensive than active systems, but they’re usually not as efficient. However, passive systems can be more reliable and may last longer. There are two basic types of passive systems:

  1. Integral collector-storage passive systems
    These work best in areas where temperatures rarely fall below freezing. They also work well in households with significant daytime and evening hot-water needs.
  2. Thermosyphon systems
    Water flows through the system when warm water rises as cooler water sinks. The collector must be installed below the storage tank so that warm water will rise into the tank. These systems are reliable, but contractors must pay careful attention to the roof design because of the heavy storage tank. They are usually more expensive than integral collector-storage passive systems.

What is a passive solar water heater system?

Passive systems are usually less expensive but less efficient. They can be either integral collector/storage systems or thermosyphon systems. The integral collector/storage type is typically used to preheat water for a conventional water heater, and is best-suited to climates where temperatures seldom fall below freezing. Thermosyphon systems rely on natural convection to circulate the water, so the tank must be located higher than the collector panels – the heated water from the panels flows upward to the tank and the cooler water returns to the collector for heating.

What is the cost of passive solar water heaters?

The average homeowner spends $3,000 to install a solar water heater. There are installation and equipment considerations which put costs between $1,812 and $6,000. Higher-end models and components could cost up to $13,000.

A solar water heater is around $6,000 to $9,000 including installation, though the price tag could go well up from there depending on the size, quality, and complexity of the system. Figure it’ll take two to four days to install. The costs will be less in warmer climates than cold ones. Also, keep in mind that there will be ongoing maintenance costs; in cold climates the upkeep will be more expensive.
