Large rooftop arrays of vacuum heat-pipe tubes (a low-cost, proven technology) produce hot water in all climates. They gradually heat up water in a storage tank. Return water from central heating is heated; the furnace functions primarily as a backup. Solar absorption cooling and dehumidification; tap water.
In addition to solar hot tap water, SmartSolar provides complete, efficient and affordable solutions for solar central heating (both water and air based) and central or individual air conditioning
