How to prevent freezing of solar water heaters in winter

  In winter, the temperature drops. For solar energy installed outdoors, water leakage and freeze cracking are prone to occur in winter. If solar water heaters can work normally in winter, solar energy must be protected against freezing. Here are some tips for you to share some winter solar antifreeze:


1. Do a comprehensive inspection

Check whether the pipeline is disconnected, leaking, cracked, etc. At the same time, use good quality insulation materials or antifreeze devices for protection.

 

2. Sheung Shui according to weather conditions

When using in winter, the time and amount of water added should be determined according to the degree of cold weather. If the outdoor temperature is above 0°C, you can consider adding water that night; if the outdoor temperature is below 0°C, it is best to add water the next morning to prevent freezing at the water outlet. At the same time, in rain and snow, it is necessary to appropriately reduce the amount of water in the solar water heater. In colder weather, you can choose to open the hot water tap of the solar water heater and let it drip slowly to ensure the smooth flow of the solar water heater. This is also the most effective way to prevent the solar water heater pipeline from freezing.

 

3. Reasonable use of electric heating function

Some solar water heaters have electric heating function. It is recommended to use this function several times in each season in spring, summer and autumn to prevent failure or self-damage caused by long-term use, and to ensure normal use when winter comes.

 

4. Water in solar energy is commonly used every day

When the temperature is lower than -6℃ in winter, it is best to use the water in the water heater in small amounts and many times a day. Especially before going to bed and after getting up, put a small amount of water to make the water flow in the pipe, and rely on the water temperature to increase the temperature of the pipe. The lower the temperature, the more water should be released to prevent freezing and blockage of the upper and lower water pipes.

 

5.Drip water antifreeze

If the temperature in the second weather is below -6°C, fill the water tank with water after using up the hot water at night. After that, connect a basin under the sprinkler or faucet, and loosen the hot water valve to make it drip slowly to keep the water flowing in the pipeline. Generally, the flow of one basin of water in a night can avoid freezing and blockage of the pipeline.

 

6. Vent antifreeze

If it is cloudy or snowing, try to use up the water in the solar energy, empty the water heater, and keep the mixing valve normally open, so as not to freeze the pipeline. If the outdoor temperature is too low, it is recommended to stop using the solar water heater and drain all the water in the water heater and pipes to avoid freezing and cracking of the water pipes due to the low temperature and lack of circulation.
