Why Solar Hot Water?
Every house in Australia should have a solar hot water system. It’s that simple. From Perth to Sydney, Darwin to Melbourne, solar hot water systems make environmental and economic sense, particularly for those of us with large families.
When does the Solar Work?
The solar panels begin the process of gradually heating the water in the morning as soon as the radiant heat from the sun is absorbed by the collectors on your roof. This continues throughout the day until late afternoon.
What Happens on the cold, cloudy or rainy days?
On cloudy and rainy days the solar gain is less, but the collectors still absorb heat. On these days the solar hot water system will usually require the assistance of a booster to maintain the water at a suitable temperature, so you will never be without hot water.
A solar hot water system is a great long-term investment that has a guaranteed return. In Perth using the sun’s energy to heat water can reduce your household hot water bills by more than 90% each year. That’s 90% of your hot water for free! That’s a big saving of around $1000 each year for the average large family. This will add up to thousands of dollars saved over the lifetime of the solar hot water system! Coupled with the longevity of the stainless steel storage tank and all copper collector panels, purchasing a solar hot water system is one of the best economic decisions you can make.
There are many variables that affect the pricing of a solar hot water system and they are determined by the customer’s requirements based on the nature of the building structure, the number of people in the family using hot water, whether the system is close coupled or split, electric or gas boosted.
Also, rebates and discounts for RECS affect the final price to the customer. Clean NRG Solar recommends that customers seek advice on the best solution for them.
