Need a solar hot water system removed from your roof? We can help.

We recently received a call from a customer near Blacktown who was getting the tile roof of their house painted and restored.  The customer had an old, inoperable Rheem rooftop solar hot water system still installed on their roof. It needed to come down before the painters arrived.  The customer contacted us and we were able to pop in the following day and take it down for them.

We can remove, move and, if required, reinstate any rooftop solar hot water system.

We are solar hot water installation specialists and have the necessary equipment to safely remove any rooftop solar hot water system. Our custom-made equipment means we can complete the installation or removal of a solar hot water system fast and efficient.

With many Sydney homes and businesses switching to solar electricity, we are often called to move rooftop solar hot water systems so the homeowner can install more solar panels on their roof.

When customers are having their roof painted, we can safely disconnect and temporarily remove the rooftop solar hot water system and then reinstate it after the restoration is complete.

Do not leave an inoperabable solar hot water system on your roof.

Surprisingly, we are finding that a lot of Sydney homes have broken solar hot water heaters still sitting on their roofs.

This is common because not many plumbers can install rooftop solar so, due to their lack of expertise, often advice their customers to switch to electric or gas hot water.  Without the necessary equipment, the plumber leaves the broken hot water system on the roof.

Leaving an inoperable solar hot water system installed on your roof can be dangerous. Because it is not being used, it’s unlikely to be checked – it becomes a case of out of sight, out of mind. This is not recommended.

Rooftop solar hot water heaters are heavy. If not checked and maintained correctly, the equipment holding it securely in place can break down.  If this happens, the whole system becomes unstable and is at risk of sliding off the roof. Additionally, in strong winds, parts can become dislodged and fly around.

Save time and money by employing a local hot water expert

Did you know that often the repair and installation of a hot water system requires the expertise and qualifications of both a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician?

We are qualified to undertake any plumbing and electrical work required to ensure your hot water heater is repaired quickly and within budget. Plumbers who do not specialise in the installation of hot water heaters may need to outsource the electrical work required to another tradesperson, thereby holding up your hot water system repair or installation, adding extra expense due to additional call-out fees charged by employing two tradespeople.

Your hot water heater is an expensive appliance. Don’t risk voiding your warranty.

Additionally, most manufacturers won’t cover the terms of your hot water system warranty if it isn’t installed by a licensed hot water technician or a qualified plumber. Hot water tanks are an expensive appliance so why would you risk voiding your warranty by installing it yourself or employing the services of someone who isn’t licensed?
