Nobody wants to try and live without hot water! From the misery of cold showers through to problems with dish washing, laundry, cleaning and more, hot water is definitely one of life’s essentials. If your hot water system isn’t working, it may well be time to take a look at the benefits of investing in a solar water system to meet your needs. In addition to using cleaner, greener solar power, you’ll also find your energy bills start to drop and you may even make a profit on any excess energy you produce that’s sold back to the grid.
Suitable for almost any property
There’s no need to worry if you’ve only got a small property – contemporary hot water systems utilise roof space, with both panels and tanks being stored out of the way. In other cases the panels can be kept on the roof whilst the tank is stored outside on the ground. Depending on the layout of your home, we can almost always find a suitable solar solution to your needs.
Benefit from incredible energy efficiency
Some homes find that they save as much as 80% on their energy bills once they’ve made the switch to solar powered hot water. Not only is the power source free, but modern technology ensures that as much sunlight as possible is converted to electricity, which is then used to power the highly efficient tank heating system. Over a few years, the cost of solar panels can often be recouped by the reduction in utility bills.
Let the government help
Not only can you enjoy hot water whenever you need, you may be eligible to apply for the government’s Feed-In tariff or Small Scale Technology Certificate scheme. Both of these initiatives can make the switch to solar power a profitable one.
In addition to all these advantages, many people like the fact that they’re taking positive steps to protect the environment in Australia and reduce reliance on toxic fossil fuels.
