A question we get quizzed on when designing solar thermal is how do you stop solar thermal overheating?
This is an interesting challenge when designing solar thermal as you cannot turn off the sun. Another challenge is hot water as it is not always needed when the sun is at its strongest.
The best example of this would be a working family where the adults are out during the day and the children are at school, more than likely the showers will be out of sync to when the sun is at its most purposeful early in the morning or the evening.
Here’s a short Video to explain how this works.
