For an SRCC certified product, you can see the product rating for operating guidelines, product testing, and product standards. The purpose of this program was to test and rate the efficiency of the solar thermal equipment, by their manufacturers at the time of the production. This rating system guides homeowners about the efficiency and reliability of different types of solar thermal equipment, helping them to select an ideal solar energy system for their home. The rating system for solar thermal equipment has been working since 1980, trusted by the government of the United States for their reliable product information.
Similar to ENERGY STAR program, the SRCC rating program helps homeowners to make a decision about purchasing, giving them valuable information about the solar energy products. You can use solar rating system to evaluate different solar thermal products, comparing them side by side and selecting the one, which best suits for your home needs. The nationwide acknowledged, SRCC rating and certification program is a standard method for the comparison of solar thermal products.
