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.

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.

Australia’s solar powered craft beer breweries.

Natasha Bedingfield once sang about having a pocket full of sunshine but these days it’s all about having a pint of sunshine instead.
With a range of Australian breweries making the switch to solar power, pouring a cold one on a hot day – or a cold day with a roaring fire – will taste that little bit sweeter…and cleaner.
The Clean Energy Council has prepared a mixed six of solar-powered breweries from across Australia, providing a huge range of choices to help you find your perfect sundowner.

Clean Energy Council

This brewing house is environmentally sustainable right down to its name.

Helios was the legendary Greek sun God tasked by Zeus with driving a chariot carrying the sun through the sky each day for all mankind. The brewery’s owners are all environmental professionals and one of them, Scott Shomer, was trained by Al Gore a decade ago to spread the word about the need for change.

And now, through the power of the sun, the brewery ensures each pot, pint and bottle of beer is both water and power efficient. They also send the spent grain from the beer making process to a pig farm instead of landfill, because the local hogs apparently love it.

7 reasons to choose a solar hot water system

Solar Hot Water Heaters

By installing a solar hot water heating system in your home you can:

  • ENJOY free energy from the sun
  • PROTECT yourself from rising energy costs
  • SAVE up to 90% on your water heating bills*
  • Access RELIABLE hot water 24/7
  • DECREASE your household’s carbon footprint
  • INCREASE the value of your property

Solar water heaters use the solar energy from the sun to generate heat – not electricity – which can then be used to heat water for your household. Depending on the climate you live in, Solar Hot Water heating systems can provide up to 90% of your hot water for free using the sun’s energy – without generating greenhouse gas emissions.*

Water heating is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from an average Australian home. It accounts for nearly 21% of the energy and generates about 23% of the greenhouse gas emissions.* Electric water heaters, in particular, contribute to these emissions. Only 50% of Australian homes use electric water heaters and they contribute 80% of hot water greenhouse emissions.

In Australia, the split of energy used for water heating comes from**:

Natural gas 48%
Electricity 45%
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) 3%

An efficient hot water service can also add value to your home and help meet state, territory or local government regulations.

Solar Water Heaters

Using solar energy

To heat water is an effective way to use Australia’s abundant sunshine, save energy, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Solar Water Heaters (SWHs) make up around 13 per cent of all hot water systems used in Australia.

Installation is important and depending on your location, direction of solar panels and the amount of water you use, a SWH could provide 50 to 90 per cent of your hot water needs.

What is a solar water heater?

A solar water heater uses energy from the sun to heat water for your home. Solar panels on your roof collect energy from the sun’s rays to heat water which flows to a storage tank, ready for use.

There are many different types and configurations of solar water heaters available. It is important to select the type that is most suitable to your family size, climate, house type, roof characteristics, water quality, available space and aesthetic preferences.

If you are considering using Solar Hot Water why not call James at Bar Plumbing

Call James 1300 38 1980

How does it work?

Cold water flows from the tank to the solar collector, usually positioned on your roof. In a split system like the one shown below, cold water is pumped up to the collector. In a thermosiphon system where the tank is mounted on the roof above the collectors, cold water flows naturally into the collector because it is heavier than hot water.
The solar collector is made of materials that absorb heat from the sun very efficiently. The cold water travels through the collector and the heat in the collector heats up the water, which returns to the tank
Hot water rises to the top of the tank and colder water is taken from the bottom and returned to the solar collector. When you use hot water, it is taken from the top of the tank where the water is hottest.

The two most common types of SWHs are close-coupled thermosiphon systems and split systems. Consumers can choose between many component types to suit the needs of the home. Generally you can select:

Boosting options
Gas (natural or LPG)
Electric
Collectors
Flat plate panels
Evacuated tube collectors
System configuration
Thermosiphon
Split systems
Electronic controls

Close-coupled thermosiphon
