Our goal is to save money and the environment. A great way to do this is to install a SolarUS solar thermal system in your home or business. The main component of the SolarUS system is our top of the line solar thermal collector which is five times more efficient than photovoltaic cells. The system uses state-of-the-art evacuated tubes that harness the insulating power of a vacuum to absorb and retain over 98% of the sun’s radiation that comes in contact with the collector.
Guaranteed for fifteen years (the longest warranty on the market) SolarUS tubes are made from high quality borosilicate glass and are fused together. This provides an all glass seal. Some manufacturers use a metal plug to provide the seal which can result in the decreased life of the tube, due to a difference in expansion and contraction rates. The SolarUS tube uses a unique three layer selective coating instead of the standard single al-n/al coating. It consists of an infrared emission layer, an absorption layer and an anti-reflective layer, giving a much improved performance.
