Solar Hot Water

SOLAR HOT WATER

Solar hot water systems are a highly effective way of getting cost-efficient and environmentally friendly hot water into your bathroom, kitchen or laundry. Although the initial outlay for a solar hot water system can be significant, they are nevertheless popular across Adelaide. This is because we have a high proportion of sunny days (even in the winter and autumn) and so your installation costs can be recouped as a result of much lower ongoing operational costs.  

In a solar hot water system, solar panels are mounted on the roof of your home and these convert the sun’s rays into energy, which is then used to heat cold water that is stored in a tank. Your solar storage tank can either be located on the roof itself, along with your solar panels (a close-coupled unit), or situated on the ground (a split-level unit).

In addition, solar hot water systems can be fitted with either electric or gas booster systems which kick in to heat your water when the solar unit is not providing sufficient energy. With a booster system in place, no matter the weather, you will never be left high and dry with no hot water. 

We service and repair all types of Adelaide solar hot water systems, and are equipped to tackle problems such as leaking connectors and valves, as well as solar panels that are damaged, leaking or split. Our team of qualified and experienced plumbers are also licensed to work at heights, and so are comfortable repairing and servicing solar storage systems located either on the ground or on your roof.
