What are the Benefits of Solar Hot Water Systems?

Solar hot water systems, also known as solar thermal systems, use the sun’s energy to generate heat. This heat is then used to produce hot water for domestic or commercial use, making solar hot water systems a renewable and sustainable source of energy, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your energy bills.

In fact, there are many benefits of installing solar hot water systems in your Adelaide home or business, including:

  • Renewable and sustainable: Solar energy is a clean, renewable resource, which means it doesn’t depend on harmful, finite resources like coal and oil to function. Solar hot water systems are also highly efficient, with some models able to convert up nearly all the sun’s energy into useful heat.
  • Cost-effective: Solar hot water systems can be a cost-effective way to heat your water, as they require no fuel or electricity to run. In fact, you could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year on your energy bills by switching to solar, rapidly recouping the initial investment.
  • Low maintenance: Solar hot water systems are very low maintenance, mainly as there are no moving parts that can break down or need replacing. Once installed, they will continue to work effectively for many years with little or no servicing required.
  • Environmentally friendly: Solar hot water systems generate zero emissions, making them a great choice for those who want to reduce their impact on the environment.
  • Versatile: Solar hot water systems can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, businesses, schools and hospitals.

How to Select the Right Solar Hot Water System for Your Property

When it comes to solar power, one size does not fit all. The amount of electricity you use, the amount of sunlight your property receives, and the climate you live in are just a few of the factors that will affect the type and size of the solar hot water system you need.

Here are a few things to consider when selecting a solar power system for your property:

1. The Amount of Hot Water You Use

This is the first and most important factor to consider when choosing a solar hot water system. You need to know how much hot water you and your family use on a daily basis to estimate the size of the system you will need.

2. The Climate You Live In

This factor is important because it will affect the efficiency of your solar hot water system. If you live in an area with lots of sunshine, then a solar thermal system will be more effective. However, if you live in a cloudy or cool climate, then a photovoltaic (PV) system might be a better option.

3. The Orientation Of Your Roof

The angle and orientation of your roof will also affect the efficiency of your solar hot water system. If your roof is facing south and has a slope of 30 degrees or more, then it is ideal for a solar thermal system. However, if your roof is not facing south or has a shallower slope, then a PV system might be a better option.

4. The Type Of Solar Hot Water System

There are two main types of solar hot water systems: active and passive. Active systems use pumps to circulate the water, while passive systems rely on gravity and convection to circulate the water. Passive systems are typically more efficient and require less maintenance than active systems.

5. The Size Of Your Roof

The size of your roof will also affect the type and size of solar hot water system you can install. If you have a large roof, then you can install a larger system. However, if you have a small roof, then you might need to choose a smaller system or a different type of system altogether.

6. The Cost Of The System

The cost of the solar hot water system is another important factor to consider. Solar hot water systems can range in price from around $1000 to $10000 or more. You will also need to factor in the cost of installation when considering the total cost of the system.

7. Maintenance and Repairs

You will need to consider the cost of maintenance and repairs when choosing a solar hot water system. Solar hot water systems require very little maintenance, but they can sometimes need repairs. The cost of repairs will vary depending on the type of system you have and the severity of the problem.

Why Pay More for Hot Water?

Purchase a solar hot water system from Seeflame Gas & Air and take advantage of the sun that shines all day long in Adelaide.

Typical solar hot water systems can accommodate between 10 and 90% of your hot water needs, practically paying for themselves in 10–15 years. (Possibly even sooner if used to generate heat for a temperature-controlled greenhouse or swimming pool).

How can we devise a simple solar heating system using water alone?

Place a plastic bottle filled with cold water in a window in the sun. It’ll warm up in a few hours. One bottle of water isn’t going to go very far in a household. 

How can you make more hot water? 

The simplest solution would be to fill lots of bottles with water and stand them in a row on your window-ledge. Cut the top and bottom off a plastic bottle and fit pipes at each end. Feed the pipes into your home’s hot water tank to make a complete water circuit. Now fit a pump in that loop, so the water endlessly circulates. The sunlight will systematically heat the hot water in your tank. (Although it will never get hot because plastic bottles on window ledges aren’t particularly good at absorbing heat.) However, in principle, you have a functioning solar heating system. It’s simple, but it works exactly in the same way.
