Active systems use electric pumps, valves and controllers to circulate the heat-transfer fluid through the collectors.PerformancePerformance varies depending on the type and size of the system, the amount of sun available at the site, proper installation, and the tilt angle and orientation of the collectors. We can perform a solar site analysis for you or show you how to do your own to ensure you select the best system to meet your needs. Sizing Your SystemProper sizing and selection of your system will insure years of trouble-free hot water service to your home. A good rule of thumb for sizing your system consists of two parts; Collector size and Solar storage.Collector size:Collector size is calculated at about 20 ft² of collector area for each of the first two family members and 8 ft² for each additional family member.Solar Storage:Solar Storage, or tank size, is calculated at a ratio of at least 2 gallons of storage capacity to 1 ft² of collector area.The models below are designed for tropical or southern climates where freeze seldom occurs.
