Solar Powered Differential Temperature Controllers

GaiaMoto Alternative

Improves the efficiency of solar heating systems!

Designed to control solar powered pumps in closed loop solar heating systems,  these differential temperature controllers will improve performance by preventing a solar powered pump from running if the collectors become cooler than the storage tank.  This typically occurs on overcast days and early and late on cold days when there is enough sunlight on the solar panel to power the pump, but the collectors are not hotter than the storage tank.

The principal advantage of an off grid solar heating system is reliability. A system that uses AC powered circulation pumps is at the mercy of the utility rather than a solar panel. If the grid fails on a sunny day causing your pump to stop, you can cook the antifreeze in the collectors and risk a chemical cascade failure which turns the antifreeze acidic. This can then rot your copper plumbing and cause an expensive system failure.

We are committed to a sustainable way of life for the planet. Our products are fully warranted and made in America.
