The Benefits Of Solar Hot Water Heating
As energy prices rise, it is becoming more and more important for homeowners to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint and save energy. Harnessing renewable resources is one great way of doing this. Solar power and wind power are widely available in most parts of the world and offer sustainable, affordable ways to heat your home and offset some of your energy usage.
What is Solar Heating?
Solar heating is available in several forms, but the most useful is solar hot water systems. Solar hot water systems harness the energy of the sun and use it to heat the water that you use for your baths and showers, washing up, and other day-to-day tasks. These systems are usually backed up by a gas or electric system to provide additional hot water on dark days, during the winter months, or if you are using a lot more hot water than normal and the solar system cannot keep up.
How Does Solar Heating Work?
The solar heater works by harnessing the power from the sun, collecting it into metal pipes, and then using that energy to heat up your water. The units are designed to be as lightweight as possible, as well as frost resistant. The collectors have a valve that will reduce pressure inside the unit during the hot summer months, so you can use the unit with confidence no matter what the weather.
The tanks are lined with stainless steel, and the water from the tank can be used just like water from a traditional tank. There is no need to be concerned about whether the water in the tank will become contaminated; you can use it for washing dishes and other day to day tasks with confidence. If you feel the need to do so, you could attach a filter to your sink with ease.
Some families, especially those that do not have children and those that work during the day, can rely on the solar heating for all of their water needs during the summer. However, families that need a lot of hot water may find that the solar system alone does not meet their needs
Why Choose Solar Heating?
Solar heating is ideal for homeowners because it saves energy, helps you to reduce your carbon footprint, and can save you money too. While many homeowners will need to use a back-up of gas or electricity to ensure a continuous supply of hot water, the savings are still substantial. When you wash the dishes, run a little hot water to fill up a bucket to mop the floor, or take a quick shower when you get home from work. You won’t need to start up your heating system as the hot water that the solar system has generated will cover those needs. Those small savings will mount up rapidly over time.
In fact, many people, especially those who live in warm climates like we have in South East Queensland, and who do not need to use gas or electricity for their day to day heating, can find that, by eliminating the need to heat water for day to day use, their utility bills fall by as much as fifty percent. The result is that it doesn’t take long for the systems to pay for themselves.
Even better, having a solar hot water system installed in your property will make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. This means that should you ever come to move home; you will find it easier to attract buyers. And you may recoup a large percentage of the cost of installing the system, or even turn a profit on it. The housing market is incredibly competitive, and anything that can attract prospective buyers to come look at your property can only be a good thing. While you are living in the property, you can reap the benefits of having access to hot water on demand.
Introducing the Thermotec Summer Solar Hot Water System
The Thermotec Summer Solar Hot Water System is built in compliance with Australian standards and is backed by 25 years of German design and engineering experience, ensuring maximum quality and efficiency.
Each system comes with a ten year warranty, so that you can be confident that it will serve you and your family well for many years. The 316 SS Tank is 2mm thick, strong and sturdy, and the system uses copper collectors and a titanium selective surface to ensure that it harnesses as much power as possible from the sun. The energy saving design is the product of many iterations and is designed to offer the best possible combination of durability, efficiency, and performance in a wide range of weather conditions.
While the Thermotec Summer Solar Hot Water System is designed for use in the summer, the engineers know that it will be on your roof all year round. For this reason it has been built with full frost and hail protection. The marine aluminium casing can withstand a lot of abuse, and this high quality heating system efficiently pumps hot water to you when you need it.
This coupled heating system uses full copper plate collectors that are coated with titanium oxide. To ensure that the collectors last as long as possible, the outer casing is made from marine grade aluminium. All of the system’s fittings and valves are made of copper or brass, with no plastic connections. This greatly reduces the likelihood of there being any leaks or failures in the system. In addition, the tank is slimline and designed to be as light as possible, with the weight spread out across your roof.
Before the tank is installed, experts will inspect your property to ensure that you can indeed have the system fitted to your home. However, the innovative tank design means that most modern homes can accept the system without difficulty, and you can use it in a coastal area or an inland area and still enjoy good heating efficiency.
