Another option to achieve energy independence and long-term cost savings is capturing energy from the sun and using it to supply heated water for a building. With varying options for how to implement a solar thermal hot water system, Glumac’s MEP engineering experts examine several factors based on client need, the external environment and the orientation of the building. Climate, expected hot water usage rates and system uses (such as heating showers, swimming pools, desalination, or steam generation) all place differing demands on a system. Glumac provides clients with tailored options to meet their unique needs and create a successful sustainable building design.
