Solar hot water system repairs or new installation 24/7

A solar hot water system consists of roof mounted solar panels and a water storage tank which is either located on the roof with the solar panels (close-coupled) or located at ground level (split system).

These solar panels absorb the sun’s rays and convert these rays into energy which is then transferred to the tank, heating the stored water inside ready for when you require it.

When people think of solar powered hot water – they often think of cold showers especially when there is little sunlight or heavy storms but this is definitely not the case. Solar hot water systems can be equipped with gas or electric solar boosters.

A solar powered booster (Gas or Electric) acts as an alternative power source.

Booster automatically operates during periods of low sun to ensure you have a constant stream of hot water available 24/7.

Solar hot water heaters can often be the most expensive hot water systems to purchase.

But solar hot water are the most economical by far and can end up saving you approximately 60-80% off your yearly energy bills when compared with an electric hot water heater.
