    Solar Coil Water Heater

    The Solar Coil ® passive solar water heater is a self-contained, single unit system that integrates the solar collector into your existing hot water system. It functions as a pre-heater to an instantaneous or conventional gas or electric hot water heater.

    • Save money - Free solar energy
    • Reduce carbon emissions
    • Reduce dependency on foreign oil
    • No moving parts
    • Maintenance free
    • Utility, Federal, State and County Rebates. More info
    • Up to 50% savings in water heating costs
    • SRCC Certified
    • Miami-Dade County Product Control Approved (Hurricane)
    • 10 year manufacturer warranty
    • 50 year warranty on copper coil
    • Made in the U.S.A.

    The Solar Coil ® requires only local water pressure and solar radiation to operate. No pumps, controls, or electrical components are required. Once installed, the system will work automatically. When hot water is used, solar pre-heated water is drawn into the conventional water heater, reducing electrical or gas usage for water heating.

    The Solar Coil ® is an efficient solar system rated by national and international testing and certification agencies. All Solar Coil systems meet or exceed all applicable national plumbing codes.

    Solar Coil ® is virtually maintenance free and feature a ten-year design life. Whether your purchase decision depends on simple pay back, return on investment or environmental benefits, Solar Coil can exceed your expectations. Solar Coil ® is the value leader in solar thermal technology.

    You will notice up to 50% savings in energy costs for heating your water, but there will be no change in your hot water supply!

    Solar Coil Kit Includes:
    • One SOLAR COIL collector
    • Two 3/8" X 6" lag bolts (may be used if bolt hole hits truss 
       or rafter)
    • Five ¼" X 6" bolts with six flat rubber, flat and lock washers.
    • Five 9 ½”, 1/4" x 20 SNAP TOGGLES.
    • One 3/4" brass cold weather freeze relief valve.
    • One 3/4" brass pressure and temperature relief valve.
    • Two 3/4" copper 45º elbows 
    • Two ¾” pipe roof flashing boots



    How The Solar Coil Works:

    The Solar Coil is a 43” diameter solar collector which contains black coated copper pipe. The collector has a clear protective cover which allows the sun to heat the pipe.

    The copper coil absorbs the free solar energy through the special coated surface. This absorption of the solar infrared rays raises the temperature of the water stored in the collector. The collector is well insulated for increased heat retention.

    The Solar Coil design allows the collector to store the colder water in the hottest area, the center of the coil. As the water is heated by the sun, it flows to the outer ring of the serpentine coil. Each time hot water is used in the home, the hot water in the coil is transferred from the collector to the conventional hot water heating system. Not only does this patented design ensure the delivery of the hottest water, but it also holds more hot water (four times as much) at a higher temperature and with a faster recovery time than other solar systems of similar size. The low 2.5" thickness of the unit has low visibility and low wind resistance during storms.

    Colder Climates: This unit is designed for mild or tropical climates.  It can be used in colder climates, but the unit must be winterized by blowing or vacuuming all water from the coil to prevent freezing and damage to the copper coil when outdoor freezing conditions exist; this method of freeze protection is not covered by the factory warranty.


    Solar Coil Features:

    Solar CoilThe Glaze Cover - Made with a UV stabilized polycarbonate resin, the glaze cover is high impact resistant and forms a tight seal to keep the collector clean and water tight. It has long term durability, is stable and has a high transmittance rate that allows a greater amount of solar energy to be absorbed.


    The Internal Coil - Manufactured entirely of copper, the internal coil is a single piece of coiled tube. The coil is pressure rated to 160 psi and is coated with a high temperature solar radiation absorption Delta paint that maximizes heat gain and reduces heat loss. 50 year warranty on copper coil!

     
    Coil Insulation - A rigid polyisocyanurate, aluminum foil covered foam board, the most efficient insulation available, is used to maximize heat retention.

    Water Connections - Solar Coil® has NO internal fittings or connections. The inlet and outlet connections are made of 3/4" diameter Type L copper. This allows for efficient, leak free installation with CPVC or copper plumbing connections.

    Back Housing - The durable ABS housing, manufactured by a company in Odessa, Florida, is rust and corrosion free.

    Roof Mount - The collector is mounted to the roof with 3/8" x 6" galvanized lag bolts, rated at 2,740 lb. of shear strength each.


    This solar collector works with a water heater tank or tankless water heater; water heater tank shown in pictures are for illustrative purposes only – the water heater tank is not included in this package.


    Benefits and Savings - Water heating savings as much as 50%!

    Our innovative, yet simple design incorporates a roof-mounted collector to heat your water without changing your current water supply system.

    Regardless of whether you have a tank or a tankless system, our collector can reduce your hot water related energy cost by as much as 50%! Plus, your hot water heater will be working less, meaning that it should last longer and thus provide additional long term savings!

    The Solar Coil® collector is SRCC rated and qualifies for the 30% solar related federal tax credit, plus additional state and local tax credits and rebates.  These credits and rebates vary depending on your state and utility company, but often cover 75% or more of the installed cost!

    Please call and speak with one of our sales consultants to find out how the Solar Coil can start generating a return on your investment inside of the first year!*

    *Return on investment (ROI) period depends greatly on the amount of federal, state and local tax credits/rebates are available to you and can vary from customer to customer.

    Solar Coil Installation:

    The collector should be mounted to your roof facing the south or southwest for maximum sun exposure.

    A licensed plumber should connect the solar coil to the water supply entering your present water heater allowing the water to flow through the solar collector prior to entering your water heater.
