Quantum Solar Hot Water Systems Go Topless!

Everyone is used to solar hot water systems with collectors on the roof. Imagine a solar hot water system with NOTHING on the roof, and that operates 24 hours a day...

Thinking 'outside the square' is a major driver of innovation.


Unfortunately, when we think of solar hot water systems, we tend to think 'inside the square'. Of course, we are going to collect the radiant heat from the sun. We'll maxinmize the angle of the collector, we'll improve collector design, perhaps by developing evacuated tubes to replace flat collector panels. But always, we're collecting the radiant heat of the sun. How can we think 'outside the square' here?

According to John Payne, Founder of Australia's Enviro-Friendly Products, the answer is in millions of homes all around the world. "Everyone understands what a reverse-cycle air conditioner does. It's a heat pump. It takes the heat from the atmosphers, and pumps it into the house in the form of heated air. Quantum Energies in Australia have taken this heat pump principle, and applied it to water heating. The sun heats the air; the Quantum harvests the heat to produce hot water."

The result is a solar hot water system that works 24/7/365. At midnight, in mid-winter, in the dark, on the wrong side of a house, the Quantum heat pump solar hot water system is producing hot water. The initial cost and running cost is comparable to standard solar systems, but because there's nothing to go on the roof, installation costs are less, and no special strengthening of the roof is necessary.

That's thinking 'ouside the square'- a 'Night'n'Day' solar hot water system that goes topless!

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
