- What is a solar water heater?
A solar water heater is equipment used for heating water. It uses energy from the sun to heat the water. Therefore they are good for the environment since energy from the sun is renewable.
2. What is the price of a solar water heater?
For a new, high-quality solar water heater, prices range from Ksh 59,000 to Ksh140,000
3. How do solar water heaters work?
The solar water heater absorbs light by means of a collector placed on the roof and converts it into heat. It passes this heat to a water tank by means of a circulating pump. This exchange is triggered by the thermal regulator, but only when the collector is hotter than the water in the tank. This prevents the circulating pumps from using electricity needlessly. Conversely, it also prevents overheating.
4. What type of systems do you have?
Techwin Limited has direct and indirect systems which have evacuated tube collectors which are proven to be the most efficient collectors available as compared to the plate collectors.
Each evacuated tube is similar to a thermos in principle. A glass or metal tube containing the water or heat transfer fluid is surrounded by a larger glass tube. The space between them is a vacuum, so very little heat is lost from the fluid.
These collectors can even work well in overcast conditions and operate in temperatures as low as -40°C. Individual tubes are replaced as needed.
5. Do you provide after-sale services?
Upon delivery of the purchased product to a client-approved location, our team of highly skilled technicians will facilitate the installation of the item and ensure efficient commissioning of the same.
