I have inspected a fair share of home with the ‘usual’ type of solar water heating devices (black sheets or pipes on the roof)
Today’s inspection had a different sent up that I have not seen before. Its hard to discribe so I will load the pictures. The first picture is of the panel on the roof. (a larger version can be seen here: http://www.garibaldiinspections.com/graphics/panels.jpg )
This is the water heater inside the home: (lg picture) http://www.garibaldiinspections.com/graphics/waterheater2lg.jpg
And the top of the unit (lg picture) http://www.garibaldiinspections.com/graphics/waterheater1lg.jpg
Like I said this was a new one for me. It was a pre-listing and I told the HO’s that I didnt have a lot experience with that set up, they said no problem, they had a 3 year transferrable warranty for the system, so dont worry about it.
Well, after I got home this afternoon, I did a little research and cant find a lot of information about this type of system, does anyone here have knowledge of this?
