Solar Hot Water systems are perfect for Summer
Solar hot water systems offer several benefits
Solar Hot Water Systems
Solar hot water systems offer several benefits, specifically during the summer months in areas like the Sunshine Coast, where sunlight is ever present. Below are five advantages of using solar hot water systems during summer:
High Efficiency in Warm Weather:
Solar hot water systems are most efficient when exposed to direct sunlight and warm temperatures. During the summer, these systems can heat water quickly and effectively, reducing the need for additional heating methods like electric or gas heaters.
Reduced Energy Costs:
With so much sunshine available in this part of the world, solar hot water systems can meet a significant portion of a household’s hot water needs for so little. This can result in significant savings in energy costs during the summer months, as homeowners rely less on conventional heating methods.
Solar hot water systems produce hot water using clean and renewable energy from the sun. By using solar energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, you’re making a significant contribution towards adopting a more environmentally friendly lifestyle, which is particularly important during the summer when energy consumption typically peaks! Depending on the number of people in the home it can be the equivalent of taking 3 small cars off the road.
Consistent Supply of Hot Water:
Solar hot water systems are designed to store hot water for later use. During the summer, we see a greater demand for hot water due to more frequent showers, more outdoor activities, and even family and friends coming to stay. Hot water systems ensure there is a consistent supply of hot water for you and your family. The new buzz word for this is solar thermal as the storage of solar hot water is akin to a large battery of liquid energy.
Solar hot water systems are known for their durability and long lifespan. The reduced reliance on additional heating methods during the summer means any additional or ongoing maintenance costs to extend the lifespan of those systems are eliminated.
