Top tips for successful solar hot water system installation

Top tips for successful solar hot water system installation

Are you tired of rising costs for your hot water system? Solar power is a great way to save on your energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Tapping into Australia’s fantastic climate, a solar hot water heater can help reduce your energy use and ensure you are driving down the cost of running your home or business.

Tips for choosing a great solar hot water system

Are you considering solar hot water installation? Be sure to consider the tips below so you get the most out of solar for your home or office.

Explore the size of your roof – your roof is where you will need to install the solar panels, so get up and measure the space you have available to understand what you can install solar panel-wise. Consider the position of the solar panels and which area is north facing to ensure you maximise the rays of sun that will hit the panels and convert them into solar power.

Get some quotes for a complete solution – many solar hot water companies will promote amazing prices but fail to deliver on service and workmanship. Ask around and find someone in your local area and offers a high-quality installation and after service guarantee on all work.

Ensure you get the right number of solar panels for your needs – your solar panel or solar hot water installer can measure up your space and also calculate the right number of panels for your family or property, for example, a four-person family will usually need at least a 300-litre solar hot water system and two panels.

    5 star review  James and his team installed a 2 panel 300 litre roof top hot water service for my family last month after our existing hot water died. The job was done in half a day and they took away the dead one. We ran the booster for about 4 days then turned it off and haven’t turned it back on since, we are making hot water from the sun only. Family of 4 (2 teenagers) and no issues with enough hot water. James and his team were great to deal with and we would happily recommend to anyone.

    5 star review  James at Bar Plumbing is excellent to deal with, our old solar hotwater system failed when one of the panels sprung a leak that couldn't be repaired. James went through all our options in regards to replacing the system and explained everything in detail. Our system was replaced within a short period of time at a competitive price with the work being completed and the site left in a clean state. I would highly recommend Bar Plumbing for all your plumbing needs. Thanks James.

SAVE UP TO 73% ON HOUSEHOLD HOT WATER ENERGY USE
Solar Power Generation in the sunshine coast of Caloundra, Queensland, Australia Since 1939.

Caloundra, Australia is certainly known for its warm and sunny climate and it should seem an
obvious country in which to generate energy from the sun. However, with the high budgets of
the electrical monopolies attempting to silence the solar power generation, we have to jointly
come together and spread through any means necessary and use the daylight to extract the sun’s energy,
meaning Australia can harness all the solar power. Bar Plumbing is looking to lead the solar revolution.

Australia’s solar radiation only averages and accounts for 58 million PJ, which is around
10 thousand times larger than its total energy consumption. Which is a colossal amount of heat that can be stored up!!
However, Australia’s current use of solar energy is exceptionally low accounting for only about 0.1 % of Australia’s total
primary energy consumption. And therefore, we are writing here today, to show the truth and get everyone rapidly on board.

The Future of Solar Power in Caloundra, Queensland
The current mass adoption of power plants and electromechanical generators have raised serious
concerns that its sheer scale is potentially damaging to local landscapes and Australia’s sunshine coast, wildlife and
increase traffic and pollution to the areas to both urban and rural regions. We hope to tackle these environmental
concerns with the projects at BAR Plumbing
As one of the most respected names on the Sunshine coast and surrounding areas, Bar Plumbing are striving to keep up
with technological advances and latest heat hump innovations, solar hot water system configurations and positioning ourselves
early on diverting our attention to the future of renewable energy.

We are looking to expand our Hiline & Loline solar hot water
systems across all regions of Australia. If successful, we can say farewell to ancient outdated, old technology that has plagued
and damaged Australia ‘s society and increase our solar capacity & utilisation significantly. Our team of specialised solar Hiline
& Loline developers are already on the cusp of new breakthroughs.

Hot Water Systems Solar Energy News Solar Hot Water

Solar hot water systems

Solar hot water systems take advantage of Australia’s supply of sunshine and use solar energy to heat water for household use. A solar hot water system should provide between 50 and 90% of your hot water needs—the amount depends on your local climate and the model of solar hot water heater you install. Solar hot water systems generally come with electric or gas boosters to provide the rest of your hot water needs.

There are many types of solar hot water systems (or solar water heaters) available so it’s important to do your research and choose one that suits your needs. You can consult the Solar water heater guide for households for comprehensive information to assist you before and after installation.

How do solar hot water systems work?

 

Solar hot water systems use solar collectors (either flat panels or evacuated tubes) which absorb energy from the sun to heat water for your home.

The heated water is then stored in an insulated tank for when you need it. The solar collectors are usually located on the roof of your home—they are best positioned facing north.

On cloudy days, or when hot water usage is higher than usual, your hot water system may need a boost. The booster will come on when the temperature of water in the storage tank falls below the thermostat setting and turn off automatically when the water reaches the required temperature.

For more control over the system, a manual booster switch and a timer may be installed to ensure you make the most of the amount of energy coming from the sun to heat the water. A gas booster generally produces less greenhouse gas emissions than an electric booster.

If you live in a frost-prone area ask your retailer about frost protection for your solar hot water system.

To maximise the benefits of installing a solar water heater ensure you understand how solar water heaters work, the best type for your particular circumstances as well as how they should be installed, operated and maintained.

The benefits of solar hot water systems

Solar hot water systems generally cost more to buy and install than other types of water heaters, but the extra upfront cost will be recovered over the life of the system through reduced energy bills.

Solar hot water systems will recover their costs more quickly in larger households, in warmer parts of the country, or where there is plenty of access to sunlight.

The benefits of solar hot water should outweigh the upfront cost:

The difference in cost will be paid back as you’ll spend less on heating water.
You’ll reduce the amount of greenhouse gases your home produces.
And of course another major benefit of solar hot water systems is that they use a renewable energy resource.

If you decide a solar hot water heater is the best system for your household ensure you understand how different electricity tariffs will impact your bills and install the system correctly.

Bar Plumbing is a ong established plumbing company specializing in all forms of hot water solar, electric and gas Rheem Australia certified service agents. We also do general plumbing and renovation work servicing North Brisbane, Kilcoy and upto Gympie.
