With the spiraling cost of electricity, Solar water heaters are a healthy alternative to heat water. Solar energy can be conveniently utilized and this helps in saving money. Solar heating systems are economical, pollution free, easy to operate and low on maintenance.
But in places like Hotels, villas, Hostel, Hospitals etc where hot water is needed in large volumes, Solar water heaters may not provide hot water during rainy and cloudy days. To overcome this problem the ideal solution would be to connect a Heat pump water heater to the tank of the solar water heater. This combination system ensures that there is an uninterrupted flow of hot water and in an energy efficient manner, as solar energy is used to heat the water and the Heat pump provides hot water round the clock and throughout the year, irrespective of weather conditions.
