Water heating accounts for up to 25% of the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the average Australian home.
Solar hot water systems are highly efficient water heaters that use the sun’s unlimited and free energy to pre-heat water, using around 80% less purchased energy than conventional hot water systems.
Old energy-hungry electric hot water heaters are very expensive to run and are a huge contributor to household energy consumption, but with solar hot water you could save over $1000 per year.
This kind of saving is possible because most of the heating comes free from the abundant Australian sunshine and less electricity or gas is required. When you use the sun to heat your water you are not only saving money today, you area also reducing your carbon footprint for a cleaner environment tomorrow.
