Cheap solar vacuum tubes are something what we are all looking for, but it is really hard to find those that really are cheap. It is also sometimes hard to compare them because lot of companies that offers solar vacuum tubes sels whole system with tank and everything and also with installation very often. How to find out in such case which solar vacuum tubes really are those most cheap? I have decided to make this research and compare just classic solar vacuum tubes to find out which of them really are the most cheap.
It was really not easy, but I have found the cheapest one for 25$ only, that is really nice price. Well those are the long ones, but if you search you can find even prize 9$, but those are of course those short ones.
Hehe this something what is really not very usual here on my blog, because, lets face it, solar vacuum tubes are not something very funny. Well, what is funny is that the dictator Kim Jong Il finally died. Before Kim Jong Il died he has seen many things and in fact there is whole blog about things that Kim Jong Il saw. I have been watching the pictures on that blog today and I have found one very interesting photo. Kim has seen many and many things in his life and one of those thinks apparently also was solar vacuum tube panel with tank on the top (probably model of it). This is really precious photo, for me it has value of gold
Hello, do you want to buy some solar water heater? Then you should first get as much info as you can so you will buy something really useful for you and not something what is not right for you. The world of solar water heaters is really big and it is not easy to pick the right product for you. Well, first you need some absolutely basic info.
So, what is solar water heater? You really need to answer to this question before you decide to buy solar vacuum tubes or other solar water heater type. Solar water heater is kind of device that uses energy from sunlight to heat water. yes it is just simple as that. Everyone who wants to have solar water heating system need to know that it is of course not just one thing, but whole system. As every system, even solar water heating systems consist of many various parts.
The first and really the most important part is solar collector, this is the part where heat is collected, vacuum solar tubes are for example the collector in system that uses them. This part of system is of course outdoor so it mus be very durable, must not be harmed with ultraviolet rays and must be prepared to work with very high temperatures. Solar vacuum tubes has all these characteristics. When the heat is collected you of course need to store it somewhere, because you are not going to use the heat in the exact moment you collect it, right? As collector you can use also flat panels with vacuum or classic cheap solar water heat collectors, but they have very low efficiency.
So storage tank is another vital part of this system. This is the place where hot water is collected and of course it must be water proof, it must not rust and it must be well insulated so you do not lose any heat. That is really something absolutely necessary, because all the heat you have collected with your collector would be lost by heating the air surrounding the collector. The better insulation of the storage tank is, the more heat you can get out of your whole system when you need it.
All these parts must be connected with some pipes of course and you have to think of the the same way as other parts, the must not lose any heat and must be from quality materials, very well insulated. All this should be enough, but there are of course systems that are quite complicated when they are really big or so you have there various electronic control units and computers, but this is getting so complicated that it will probably do to you some specialized company and it is really not the goal of this short article to give so comprehensive info, this should have been just the basic info and I hope that you found it helpful if you think about getting vacuum tube solar water heater.
I’m sure that you have heard about this before, some friend of you would really like to buy solar vacuum tubes, but he is afraid that his tubes will be destroyed and crushed after the first big storm with falling hail stones. In this case I have for you really great news. It is true that solar vacuum tubes are made of glass and so it is theory possible that these tubes will break if hit by hail stone, but it is extremely unlikely. Why? Well, there is one very simple answer to this. Solar vacuum tubes are not made of some normal classic glass you have in your window, in fact these evacuated solar tubes are made of something much more stronger. The material these tubes are made of is Borosilicate Glass. This material has many attributes that makes it perfect for solar vacuum tubes and one of these characteristics is that it is extremely hard. There is really almost no chance it could be damaged with hail stones, so do not worry.
Think about the material in similar way as you think about your car. Do you always when hail stones starts to fall from the sky run outside and protect your car in some way? I’m sure you do not so, so don’t be afraid that your solar vacuum tubes will be destroyed and your money will be gone.
Do you think that you cannot build solar vacuum tubes with old beer bottles? Then you are absolutely wrong. Solar vacuum tubes are something really amazing, but as I have mentioned here before many times, it is also system that is very simple. That is the reason why there are methods how to create simple solar tubes at home. Check out this video where you can DIY solar vacuum tubes in action. I’m sure these are not so efficient as those ones that are manufactured, but you can see clearly that they are working. Isn’t that amazing that some people can do such things at home and even use old beer bottles? that is real recycle. i have to admit that I have never seen anything like this. Cool stuff and I hope I will see more stuff like this soon. You will probably not be able to really use something like this at your roof, even it is nice vision to build your own solar vacuum tubes with old beer bottles, it is not very likely that it will work in bigger scale. Well, still really good job this guy did!
