Cash in on the Sun
Solar Water Heating Systems Offer Massive Saving. There isn’t a debate about it anymore; your geyser gobbles up more electricity than any other electrical appliance in your home or business. That means one of the first things you need to do to cut the costs attached to heating water via electricity ultimately is to invest in a solar water heating system!
A solar water heating system or geyser captures solar energy emitted from the sun to produce your home’s hot water. The system’s two main components are the solar collector, which heats the water, and the geyser which stores this hot water for consumption.
There are two main reasons for people to turn to solar water heating; to reduce their electricity bill or to make a conscious decision to turn to a renewable or green form of energy.
Every household’s hot water consumption pattern and usage is different, so there is no specific number of how much each home will save by switching to solar. An accepted approximation of the potential savings is up to 45% by switching to a solar water heating system.
You will always get hot water! Our solar systems come with a backup element which will kick in if there is not enough solar energy on any given day to heat the water to the correct temperature.
Our solar collectors are also highly efficient, and even on cloudy days and during winter, they will be able to provide some heat. In contrast, the backup element will merely provide ‘top up’ heat to bring the geyser up to temperature before use.
The ideal temperature of your geyser or tank is between 55 and 60⁰C. Most solar systems heat the water to between 55 – 65⁰C, but some can heat it much higher.
