Solar Thermal Calculator is a web site where a user can create a project to place solar panels on a desired area depending on the criteria he / she has set.
In general, solar heating systems convert solar radiation into useful heat to heat air or water for domestic, commercial or industrial purposes. Modern collectors have selective coatings on the absorber to absorb maximum solar energy. Their absorbers are usually made of copper or aluminum. Collectors for domestic hot water production and heating assistance can be flat or vacuum tubing. Solar collectors are usually mounted on a roof and connected through a contour line containing water and propylene glycol with a storage tank (boiler) with a built-in heat exchanger (coil). Heated fluid circulates to heat the boiler by pump or gravity under the influence of the thermo-siphon effect.
