What is solar hot water?
Solar hot water is a hot water system that uses the heat from the Sun as a source of free energy.
It has a tank to store the hot water and panels that absorb heat from the Sun.
Think of how hot the inside of your car feels after being parked in the Sun and you can see the potential.
Correctly installed, a 2 x panel solar hot water system will produce the equivalent of a 2-3Kw solar power system while using a quarter of the roof space.
In most cases your will see 75-90% savings on you hot water bills which is approx. 1/3 on your power bill.
How solar hot water works
Solar hot water has 3 types of power available, the Sun, Electricity, or Gas.
The Sun is the primary source of energy.
Electricity or Gas are back up sources of heat, only to be used on occasions when there is not enough heat from the Sun.
Importance of Design and Installation
Solar hot water systems require people with the knowledge and experience to install them to get the desired results.
By results we mean:
Maximum savings on hot water bills and,
Gaining the most life from the system.
Hot water is delivered in a timely manner.
I estimate a minimum 70% of installed solar hot water systems in the greater Brisbane area are not working to their full potential.
90% of people I have encountered do not know how to use them.
Day after day we see systems that fail at 10 years or less, that would have lasted 20+ years.
One of our customers had solar hot water installed on his new home and it was never working. He and his family spent $2400 on hot water in 3 years when it should have been more like $400.
Every story that I have heard from someone who was not happy with their solar hot water has been the result of poor installation and the quality of the system.
Sears Solar was created is to address this issue.
