FSEC Approved Solar Energy Systems: Domestic Hot Water and Pool Heating
Water Heating; Buildings; Swimming Pool Heating; Cooling; Solar Thermal
This listing contains Florida Energy Factors for solar domestic hot water systems that have been approved by the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) for use in the State. These energy factors represent the dimensionless ratio of the hot water energy made available by each approved system divided by the electrical energy used by the system. The Florida Energy Factor (FEF) is used to determine hot water credit multipliers for residential solar water heating systems in the 1993 Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building Construction. The FEF can also be used to compare the efficiency of solar water heating systems with other types of water heaters (e.g., electric, gas, and heat pump) that also use Energy Factors as a rating measure.
