Its design temperature is 60°C and it is used for heating and hot water supply. The vacuum tube collector heats water to about 90°C and is used not only for heating and hot water supply, but also for cooling. The air-type collector is used primarily for heating, but is, at the same time, employed for providing a hot water supply by using a heat exchanger.
