From the Paper:

"The evacuated-tube system is used in a commercial setting. Most residential systems are either the flat-plate collector type, or the integral collector-storage system (US DOE, 2008). Circulation systems can be either direct or indirect systems. The direct system pumps water through the collectors and into the house. They are used in climates that do not experience freezing temperatures. The indirect heating system circulates non-freezing heat-transfer fluid through the collectors and heat exchanger (US DOE, 2008). The water then flows into the home. These units are more popular in climates where freezing temperatures occur (US DOE, 2008)."
