Solar Hot Water Systems
Solar hot water systems use roof-mounted solar collector panels which absorb the energy from the sun and use it to heat water flowing to a storage tank. A solar hot water system can substantially reduce your electricity bill and can provide 65% – 80% of your hot water for free!
Higher installation costs are compensated by longer-term savings and the reduction in environmental impact. Ideally, solar panels should be positioned on a north-facing section of the roof, at an angle of approx. 35 degrees above horizontal. Angles as low as 15 degrees may be used, however the system’s performance in the cooler months of the year will be reduced and additional panels may be required in order for the system to work effectively.
There are a range of solar systems available, so at RMS Services we are happy to provide our customers with a free detailed quote tailored to the needs of your home. One of our solar specialists will come to your home and conduct a thorough site inspection and take all necessary measurements. They will then compile a detailed quote with recommendations regarding the position of the system, type of system and an all-inclusive price. We are also able to assist in claiming all government incentives as a reduction to the invoiced price upon completion of the installation.
There are two kinds of solar hot water systems available, and our solar specialists will provide you a recommendation as to which will be most suitable to your home.
Ground Systems (Lo-Line)
Ground systems, as their name suggests, have the water storage tank located on the ground; separate to the roof-mounted panels. Rheem Loline solar water heaters are direct systems, suitable for warmer climates and areas with good water quality. Rheem Premier Loline solar hot water heaters are indirect solar water heaters specifically designed for cooler climates and areas with poor water quality.
Roof Systems (Hi-line)
Roof systems have both the solar collector panels and water storage tank located on the roof. Rheem stainless steel roof solar systems are available in a range of Colorbond colours to compliment your roof and blend with your home’s aesthetics, at no additional cost.
What about cloudy days and overnight?
There will always be days of the year when your solar system does not collect enough energy from the sun to provide all of the hot water you need. On days like these, a boosting unit is used to “boost” the water temperature to ensure year-round comfort and convenience.
There are two types of booster option to choose from; Gas continuous-flow boosting unit or an in-tank electric element booster.
