The only way to truly know how well your solar thermal system is working is to collect data. This can be as simple as writing down a few temperatures each day from thermometers installed in the collector loop, or as complex as monitoring every possible variable and logging them many times an hour. If you want to determine your collector and system efficiency, here's the minimum amount of information you'll need to gather:

• Collector loop flow rate (gpm)

• Fluid temperature entering collector (°F)

• Fluid temperature exiting collector (°F)
