To design an effective solar water heating system (SWHS), parameters such as the energy consumption rate, total cost, and climatic region characteristics must be analyzed during the time interval (annual or seasonal) of the predicted use. In this paper, the optimum dimensions of a SWHS were determined using the life cycle cost (LCC) analysis constraint by the 40% solar fraction for the different regions of Turkey for annual and seasonal periods.
