Some roofs do not allow integration (fiber cement, steel tank); We will speak then of solar panels in roofing.
A solar collector can also be mounted on a chassis on the ground or on a flat roof. It can then be oriented ideally in direction and inclination.

CESI (individual solar water heater)
The most widespread of solar thermal, the CESI (individual solar water heater) of 300 liters and 5 m² of panels is suitable for a family of 4 whose needs it will cover to more than 70% in our regions.
In December and January, the contribution of the sun is not enormous but as of April it is common to find his balloon at 80 ° C. When the sun heats the water without the need for an extra boiler, you do not hesitate to heat the water. At the outlet of the hot water tank, a thermostatic mixer keeps the water at the desired temperature (maximum 60 ° C).

SSC (Solar Combined System) or Solar Heating
The SSC (Solar Combined System) is also a solar thermal. The surface of an SSC will often exceed 10 m² for a well insulated house.
In our regions, annual coverage of hot water / heating needs does not exceed 40% to 50%.
A backup is therefore necessary. This boiler can be supplied by a boiler gas, fuel, wood, a heat pump or an electrical resistance.
