With decades of experience installing and servicing a wide range of solar hot water systems, Grand Solar has pursued tangible improvements in the technology, culminating in the design, testing and manufacturing of a new and unique solar product, the BlazingTubes solar heater. Comprised of the latest and most advanced solar component, the selective coated, solar vacuum tube, the unit offers solutions to the shortcomings of previous generations of solar hot water systems.
25 years without high maintenance, service or replacement costs
Solar Water Heating System
The BlazingTubes design is simple, in order to reduce future service and maintenance costs to the homeowner. Free of circulation pumps, electronic controllers, sensors and expensive parts demanded by other more conventional solar systems, the BlazingTubes heats water passively. Fabricated with the most durable materials available, including aluminum, glass, silicone and copper, the design life is 25 years of trouble-free operation.
BlazingTubes installations take just one day to complete
Installation of BlazingTubes Units
The number of BlazingTubes units needed depends on the number of persons in a household. Two BlazingTubes units are ordinarily installed for a family of 3-4 and will provide up to 90% of the hot water consumed. These BlazingTubes units are simply fastened to the roof (using stainless steel bolts) and plumbed in series with the existing electric or gas water heater, which still act as backup heaters on rainy days. Depending on the home, the BlazingTubes units can be installed “flush” with the appropriate pitched roof, or mounted on aluminum angle frame when the roof is flat. Copper piping is used exclusively with the hot lines insulated entirely. A thermometer is provided to view the solar heated water temperature and a mixing valve ensures protection from scalding temperatures BlazingTubes installations take just one day to complete, so hot water is available from the first night.
10 year manufacturer’s warranty
In addition to the BlazingTubes systems, Grand Solar does offer other solar technologies in Hawaii, including conventional pump solar hot water systems, thermosyphon solar hot water systems and residential PV systems. The company can provide pricing for a full array of systems types and sizes. Our expertise and wide experience in the solar field make us your best choice.
