How Does Solar Hot Water Work?
Solar hot water systems work by using the natural power of the sun! Sunlight is collected by a set of solar panels which then convert the rays into heat energy. As water goes through the system, either from a tank mounted on the roof in an integrated system, or a tank set on the ground in a split system, this energy is transferred into the water.
The water constantly circulates through the heat exchanger and tank, keeping it at a regular temperature, but since the energy is natural it costs you very little. In winter, less sunlight will have an impact on the efficiency of solar units. However, there are simple solutions - gas-boosted or electric-boosted solar.
Boosters backup your hot water unit when there’s just not enough sunlight to power the system. The boosters kick in when you need hot water. With a gas booster, the charges will remain fairly low, meaning you’re not spending much on hot water even in the colder months.
Altogether, you'll have a consistent supply of efficient hot water in summer, winter, autumn or spring.
Solar Hot Water Repairs and Installation
Solar hot water systems have low running costs, but when it comes to repairs, maintenance and installation, you don’t want to be paying too much. Regular maintenance can help you manage the efficiency of your system along with your expenses.
A well-maintained hot water system should last at least a decade and there have even been reports of solar hot water systems running for 20 years. To get the best out of your system, you’ll want to call on the experts.
