Electrical energy, solar energy, and-or direct combustion of a fuel are the most common thermal sources for home water heating.
In recent years, the use of solar energy has become popular because it is a renewable and economic energy source.
Among the solar collectors, those assisted by thermosyphons are more efficient; therefore, they can enhance the heat transfer to water.
A thermosyphon is basically a sealed tube filled with a working fluid and, normally, it has three regions: the evaporator, the adiabatic section and the condenser.
The great advantage of this device is that the ther...
