Save money on your power bill and reduce greenhouse emissions with a new solar hot water system. Contact a Sunshine Coast specialist for a quote and advice on the most efficient and cost-effective solar water heating solution for your household. So, which hot water system is best suited for your family? There is a range of solar hot water system to choose from, including roof and ground-mounted solar. Roof mounted solar combines collectors and a tank, both installed on the roof, which frees up space at ground level. While ground-mounted solar combines slim roof-mounted collectors with a ground tank, which reduces the structural load and visual impact on your roof. The requirements for an effective solar hot water
system are a good-sized, northward-facing roof with a lot of clearance space, and an area free of shade. Talk to a certified plumber for advice on the best system for your home. Solar not suitable for your home? A heat pump might be the solution. They work the same way as solar but without the collectors on the roof. The system extracts heat from the air to heat the water. This method is highly efficient and uses 30% less energy than conventional electric hot water systems. Not sure which renewable energy water heating technology to use in your home?
