Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar hot waters systems convert the suns energy into heat for the households hot water supply. Solar hot water systems look much like a regular solar panel, but there’s a horizontal, cylinder water tank on the back. These hot water systems use the suns energy to heat the water inside copper pipes. The water is circulated through the pipes and the storage tank so there’s plenty of hot water for your house. A solar hot water system is a great investment for your home. You’ll save heaps of money on hot water consumption, as you will no longer require electricity for your hot water. Plus, it will greatly reduce your impact on the environment. 

Heat Pump Hot Water Systems

Heat pump hot water systems are like a solar hot water system minus the sun. These hot water systems absorb heat from the air and heats the water using heat exchange. Unlike solar hot water systems, heat pump hot water systems still use electricity. However, they are three times more efficient than your standard electric system. Much like solar, heat pump systems will save you a lot of money, because they will greatly reduce your energy consumption.
