TrendSetter® Solar Water Heater
The TrendSetter design philosophy is centered around simplicity of design, maximum service life and the highest achievable operating efficiencies. TrendSetter has the largest capacity range of SRCC-certified systems available, and as an Energy Star Partner is fully qualified to design, manufacture and ship the system of your dreams.
The TrendSetter water heating system is a drain-back freeze protected system. The water drains out of the collectors each time the solar pump turns off leaving no water in the system to freeze. A solar hot water system needs to be installed correctly to insure high efficiency and most importantly, safe and reliable operation. The system can be modified to operate as a closed loop system filled with special non-toxic polypropylene glycol. This will require an additional heat exchanger and expansion tank.
The TrendSetter system has been engineered to avoid reliance on freeze valves and other components that are prone to malfunctioning. Over-engineering a system can greatly increase cost and increase the likelihood of things going wrong. If you are considering making any changes to the system please contact the manufacturer for assistance.
