Renewable Energy Sources
The generation of hot water domestically, is directly related to the personal gygiene and cleanliness of the household members. Moreover, it is also related to layndry washing and dishwashing. The aim of this chapter is the presentation of the basic operational principles of the appliances that generate hot water (mainly electrical and solar water heaters).
