Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar hot water systems

Our prices are for fully installed*^ units. Solar Hot Water Systems come in two types, those with the tank at the roof and those with the tank on the ground and then with options for gas or electric boosted systems. The panels are always placed where they capture the sun best. If you have a combination in mind but are uncertain call us and we will assist you. 

The Plumbing and Gas Guys are trained and experienced in installations repairs and maintenance of solar hot water systems. We will even dispose of your old hot water unit for free, being a service we understand is unique to The Plumbing and Gas Guys. 

Flat Panel Collection Systems

Our solar hot water units are all based on high quality long lasting flat pannel collectors. Flat pannel collectors have copper pipes running through a glass covered collector and work in with a storage tank on the roof or the ground, often with a gas boosted or electric boosted hot water system. 

The water in the copper pipes is heated by the sun and as a result of heating is circulated into and out of the storage tanks reducing any energy needed to further heat the water, saving you money. 

The flat pannel system is easy to maintain and unobtrusive so it blends into the roof line to keep your house looking presentable. 

 

Can I retrofit a solar hot water system to my exisiting hot water system?

In many cases you can retrofit a solar hot water system. Our solar hot water systems are fully installed, with all you need. However, if we find that retrofitting is an option that will provide an equivalent hot water service at a lower cost rest assured we will represent the option for you on installation or prior if we are aware of what exists currently.

 

Ground or roof mount? Gas or electric boosted?

There are two tyoes of systems available, being a roof mount and ground mount. It really comes down to idividual preference. The only difference is one has the tank on the roof and one has the tank on the ground. Ground mont tanks are generally the prefferred option as they are less noticable and more traditional in design.

The next option is gas or electric boosted. The boost is to bring the water up to temperature on days when the solar system isn't doing the whole job itself. Gas is generally classed as cheaper than electricity, so if you have a gas system currently then gas is recomended. If the house has gas supply then we can quote a gas boosted system also, otherwise an electric boosted system is recomended. 

The Plumbing and Gas Guys can quote a system for you and if you are unsure just call and we will work out a solar hot water solution with you that suits your needs.

Roof Mount Solar Hot Water System:

1. Colder water circulates through the collectors, is heated by the sun and returns to the tank.

2. On days where the temperture is not quite at the required level, the temperature can be boosted by a gas or electric heater.

Where available, gas is typically classed as more efficient, cost effective and a lower greenhouse gas contributor. 


Ground Mount Solar Hot Water System:

1. Cold water from the bottom of the hot water tank rises to the solar collectors.

2. As water raises through the solar collectors it is heated by the sun.

3. Hot water from the solar collectors is fed back into the tank.

4. The tank stores free hot water from the sun for your home.

5. On days where the temperture is not quite at the required level, the temperature can be boosted by a gas or electric heater. 

Where available, gas is typically classed as more efficient, cost effective and a lower greenhouse gas contributor.
