Save on your home costs today and increase the value of your home with a Solahart solar hot water system. With roof mounted or split systems available, our solar hot water systems are the most economical way to heat water for your household.

With over a million homes in Australia already with solar panels on their roofs, many people are still unaware that they can create greater energy efficiency and savings by adding a solar hot water system to heat their water alongside their solar power system. With hot water heated by the sun, you’ll find your electricity bills slimmer than ever!

There are two types of solar hot water systems. You’ve got the roof-mounted variety, or the split system variety.

What is the Difference Between the Two?

Roof Mounted Solar Hot Water System

These roof mounted tanks save space at ground level and offer efficient and reliable energy collection. Using the thermosiphon principle to collect heat from the sun through heat-absorbent panels, energy is transferred to a storage tank for easy, continual use for the whole household.

The 302L solar hot water system has its vitreous enamel lined solar storage tank installed on the roof directly coupled to the solar collectors. Working on the simple fact that hot water rises, the increase in temperature causes the water to rise through an insulated copper pipe into a storage tank, ready for your next shower!

Split System and Heat Pump Hot Water Systems

Our split system solar water heaters are an option that provides aesthetic appeal for your home while maximising the potential savings from the sun. The storage tank is installed at ground level, out of sight, while the panels are mounted on the roof. To ensure the continuous flow of hot water, an electric pump or circulator is included.

The Solahart heat pump is a smart, energy efficient alternative for areas where a traditional solar water heater may not be suitable. Rather than using roof mounted collectors, efficient heat pump technology extracts energy from the surrounding air. Installation is quick and easy and can usually be installed in the same location as an outdoor electric water heater and connected to existing plumbing and electrical connections.

What Are the Benefits of a Solar Hot Water System? 

  1. A good solar hot water heater is a set and forget investment. Once it is attached to the roof, you can rest easy knowing that when the sun is shining, your solar heater is keeping your water nice and hot. Adding a solar battery to your system keep your water at optimum temperature even in the dead of winter or on the coldest of nights.
  1. It cuts out the middleman. Instead of using panels to turn sun rays into electricity and then that electricity back into heat, a solar hot water system does it instantaneously. The sun directly heats up the water, using less of your precious energy and saving it in storage.
  1. Roof space is valuable. Make the most of it if you can with a hot water system that stays put in a primary place that lets it soak up as much of the sun’s shine as possible.

Streamlined and compact, both roof mounted and split systems are great options. Whether you’re interested in saving on energy costs, being more environmentally friendly, trusting your own system to deliver sun heated water, or decreasing reliance on non-renewable electricity, our Solahart hot water systems are the way to go.
