Solar Hot Water Heating System

If we examine another portion of the south-facing roof, we can see the outline of the solar hot water heater. Notice how the frame of the solar hot water heater is clearly visible - this can be accounted for by the fact that the frame is metallic, while the rest of the system is glazed.

The temperature range is from 71°F (darkest colors) to 107°F (lightest colors).
