Sarawak receives bright sunlight almost every day in a year. Sun is a source of free energy and inexhaustible. Solar energy can be use for water heating or solar water heater. The usage of this type of water heater in Sarawak is still low due to the cost and the knowledge of the people in the system. This project is to produce a passive solar water heater that is affordable by every household. The system must be low in capital co t and also in its running cost. The design system must be easy to install and suitable with its surrounding. The collector for the system is placed under the roof to make use of the wide roof area as the thermal collector from the sun. The water is heated up by the heat absorbed by the roof and also the hot air under the roof. The system also eliminated the extra reinforcement on the roof that is needed when installing other passive solar water heating system by placing the storage tank below the roof and separately from the collector.
