Evacuated Tubes better in the cooler climates

Evacuated tubes consist of a series of glass tubes containing an inner water or heat pipe, which is surrounded by a vacuum. The round surface of evacuated tubes allows the sun’s rays to hit perpendicular to the surface for a larger part of the day, which means that they are highly efficient for more of the day. This also allows them to be installed facing east or west (if north is not possible), with only a small loss of efficiency. They can be better suited to cold climates, as their vacuum minimizes heat loss and they are better protected from frost damage.
