A stand-alone solar hot water system uses collectors on the roof to capture heat and heat up water directly, which can then be used to supply your hot water system or heat up your home. Solar hot water systems with a ‘booster’ use either gas or electricity as backup to ensure a reliable supply of hot water.
The evacuated tubes that make up the solar system don’t require direct sunlight, which means they get more heat from the sun for longer periods of the day and makes them ideal for the colder seasons or colder climates. The hot weather is fed into an insulated storage tank and the water can be stored for several days at the required temperature.
Installing a solar water heating system will reduce the average household’s carbon emissions by 2.4 to 3 tonnes. It can also save you hundreds of dollars every year compared to an electric or gas hot water system.
The Wiseliving Solar Hot Water System can be tailored to any needs from the smallest domestic units to larger industrial…
