Solar water heater work on the principle of photovoltaic effect. Photovoltaics is term that includes conversion of light into electricity with the help of a semiconducting material.

Solar water heater consists of solar panels that carry out all the tasks. Let’s see the working of a solar water heater in detail and how it helps in environmental sustainability.

How does a solar water heater work?

Solar panels absorb the sunlight and use the photons in the sunlight to convert light energy into electricity. This is connected to the water supply. As the water flows through the tubes, it absorbs solar heat and becomes hot. The heated water is stored in a tank for daily use as needed.

The solar water heaters do not emit any harmful gas, unlike the other fossil fuels which produce a large amount of carbon dioxide harming the breathing layer of the environment.
