Abstract: Exergetic analysis was carried out on two thermosyphon solar water heating systems to evaluate ‎their thermal performances. The two systems are of similar design but system B with the storage ‎tank insulated is an improvement on system A with an uninsulated storage tank. In comparison ‎with system A, system B absorbed more energy with about 62.4 % of the absorbed energy ‎available as useful energy. On the other hand, system A absorbed less energy and only about 31.1 ‎‎% of the absorbed energy is available as useful energy.
