With a good tilt facing the sun, I would expect to get about 8,000 to 12,000 BTUs per collector in the winter as opposed to up to 20,000 in the summer. I am guessing the ground water is around 45 degrees F so the collector will be starting in a good efficiency range and the ambient will be increasing some over the day.
