What is a tubular collector?

The tube collector, unlike other types of solar collectors , has the shape of a tube. This is a newer technology than a plate collector, but that does not mean it's better. At least not in everything. In warm weather, which lasts from May to September, it is better to bet on more traditional plate collectors. They are more durable and thanks to a larger area they can catch and thus produce more energy. Tube collector time comes with autumn or winter. Tube type is more effective when it's out of place.
