A.O. Smith Water Products Co.: Solar Thermal Water Heaters

water heaterThe Cirrex® solar thermal water heating product line has been expanded. The innovative solar water heating system is now available in 16 package systems to meet a wide variety of consumer applications. With this system, up to 70 percent of the energy needed for a home’s water heating can be captured from the sun, which can significantly reduce operating costs. It is an all-in-one system for easy specification and installation. According to the manufacturer, the solar thermal collectors are much more effective at capturing energy from the sun compared with traditional photovoltaic solar panels, and they do it at a fraction of the cost. The larger the tank and number of panels incorporated into the system, the more effectively the Cirrex can capture energy from the sun. The system is OG-300 by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) and eligible for a federal tax credit of 30 percent of the total installed cost with no maximum, says the company. Additional state and local incentives may also be available.
