Solar hot water is perfect for the Australian climate
In Australia, with our temperate climate and sunny weather, it makes sense to utilise what Mother Nature provides free of charge to heat your hot water. By using solar energy, you pay less than a conventional electric or gas hot water system. Not only is that more money in your pocket, but significantly reduces your global impact and greenhouse emissions. It’s a win-win on all accounts!
How solar hot water works
Solar hot water is actually quite simple. Solar collectors installed on your roof absorb energy from the sun which heats the cold water that runs through the pipes just below the surface. This hot water is then stored into a hot water storage tank ready for you to use. After you use hot water, cold water flows through the solar collectors, heats up and replenishes the storage tank. To ensure there’s always hot water for those not so sunny days, an electric or gas booster is added to the system.
What if the sun isn’t shining?
Even when the sky is cloudy, the sun is still letting off solar rays that heat your hot water. If the sky is blue and the sun is shining, you will have more hot water BUT it doesn’t need to be sunny and hot for a solar hot water system to work and generate great, free hot water. Most solar hot water systems have a booster system or back up system which means if your hot water tank isn’t holding enough hot water for your needs that the booster will heat water for you on the spot. A common and popular type of back-up system is a gas or electric instantaneous hot water system.
