  • Solar Systems: How Do Solar Thermals Work?

    Solar thermals are one of the more common solar systems; however, they are often referred based on their service rather than the name solar thermal itself. Solar thermals comes in many different variation; from focusing light, acting like a furnace, to application of a heating water, acting like a water heater; solar thermals are everywhere in everyday life (Kalogirou, 2004, p 238). While they are not commonly recognize as photovoltaic, they are widely used in many of its different form. How do solar thermal work? Solar thermals are user of heat to provide energy. It comes from the word solar and thermal, which means sun and heat respectively. They are able to incorporate solar radiation’s heating component to a fluid, which is then used as…
