Solar Hot Water Services

When you need comprehensive solar hot water services, Mr Emergency is here to help.

Why Solar?

Solar hot water heaters are becoming increasingly popular in Australian households. Have you noticed lately that in almost every street there is at least one house with solar panels on the roof? This is because solar power is extremely cost efficient and eco-friendly. Although solar hot water heaters are usually the most expensive to install they save you around 60-80% of your energy bills per annum in the long run, not to mention the substantial reduction of carbon gas emissions.

Solar water heaters consist of solar panels and a water storage tank; the solar panels are installed on your roof and collect energy from the sun’s rays – this energy is transferred to the tank, heating the water inside.

Solar water heaters are available in two main types:

  • Split System – These systems are split, meaning that the solar panels are located on the roof but the tank is located on ground level. Hot water is then pumped from the panels to the tank.
  • Thermosiphon/Close Coupled – This system is installed with both the panels and the storage tank being mounted together on the roof and does not require the use of a mechanical pump to transfer the heated water to the tank. For frost prone areas a heat exchange fluid, such as anti-freeze, is used to prevent any damage to the panels from freezing.

Solar Boosters

If there is no sun to heat the water, a backup gas or electric solar powered booster can be installed. This booster is connected to the storage tank and maintains the water’s heat – ensuring you will always have hot water available. You can turn the solar hot water booster on at any time of the day as and when required.  Installing a booster will ensure that you will get the most out of your solar powered system at all times –  even on those cloudy or rainy days.
