Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays on the roof mounted solar collectors and transferring it to heat the water stored in the tank.
Energy efficient – can save up to 65% of water heating energy consumption.
Reduces carbon emissions – solar systems can currently save up to 1.0 to 2.5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per annum.
Complete range – the Rheem solar range includes both split, ground mounted systems and complete roof mounted models in a variety of capacities from 180 – 410 Litres.
All weather protection – Rheem Premier® Loline series feature unique, drain-back heat exchange technology, that prevents the solar system from freezing, or overheating during weather extremes.
Traditionally solar water heaters have proven themselves to be an energy efficient renewable water heating alternative to gas and electric systems. And while solar systems continue to be an efficient way to heat water, heat pump water heating technology also saves on energy consumption and green house gas emissions.
Energy efficient – can save on energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 68%.21.
No solar collectors – ideal where roof space is limited or not facing in suitable direction.
Replacement for electric water heaters – uses similar plumbing and electrical connections as an electric water heater, making it an ideal upgrade from a standard electric water heater.
Rheem electric storage water heaters store hot water in the tank ready for immediate use. These products rely on an electric element(s), which is controlled by a thermostat, to heat water.
Off-Peak tariffs offer lower cost electricity during specific time, typically during the night or outside peak usage period- ideal for large water heaters.
There are two main types of solar hot water systems available for residential and commercial use: solar thermal systems and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Solar thermal systems use solar collectors (either flat plate collectors or evacuated tube collectors) to absorb the sun’s heat and transfer it to a heat transfer fluid, which then heats the water stored in a tank. Solar PV systems, on the other hand, use solar panels to generate electricity, which is then used to heat water through an electric element or a heat pump. Both systems can be efficient and effective in providing hot water, depending on the specific requirements and location.
The cost of a hot water system depends on various factors, such as the type of system, its size and the installation requirements. Keep in mind there are government incentives and rebates available for switching to solar power solutions, which can help reduce the upfront cost.
The lifespan of a solar hot water system depends on the type of system and its components. Solar thermal systems can typically last between 20 to 25 years, while solar PV systems can last for around 25 to 30 years. Proper maintenance and servicing can extend the life of your solar hot water system and ensure it remains efficient and effective throughout its lifespan.
Yes, it is possible to integrate a solar hot water system with an existing hot water system. This can be done by either supplementing the existing system with a solar thermal system or by using a solar PV system with a heat pump. In both cases, the solar component will work in tandem with the existing system to provide hot water efficiently and effectively. It is essential to consult with a professional solar power solutions provider, like Solar Services Central Coast, to determine the best integration method for your specific needs.
Solar hot water systems are designed to provide hot water even during periods of low sunlight. In solar thermal systems, a backup heat source, such as a gas or electric heater, can be used to maintain the desired water temperature when there is insufficient sunlight. Similarly, solar PV systems with a heat pump can rely on electricity from the grid or a battery backup to provide hot water during cloudy days or at night. This ensures you always have access to hot water, regardless of weather conditions.
