Everything You Need to Know About Your Solar Hot Water System
It makes great sense to consider a solar hot water installation for your home. After all, you can save money, it’s great for the environment, and you can still get the hot water that you need. In this article, we will take a closer look at some interesting facts about solar hot water and why you should install it in your home.
Why Solar Hot Water?
It takes four times more energy to heat up water compared to the equivalent amount of air. Heating water consumes a lot of energy in your home, and this is reflected in your energy bills. Around 25-30% of the energy used in a typical Australian home is used for heating water. When a solar hot water system is installed, the water is preheated by the sun, and this can save around $300-$700 on energy bills. So, it’s no surprise that solar water heating is becoming very popular for many Australian families.
What is a Solar Hot Water System?
This is a system that collects energy from the sun, stores it in your water and then preserves that heated water to use around your home. A solar hot water system is often installed alongside a traditional hot water system to provide pre-heated water on sunny days. A number of components are required for the system to work correctly.
The Solar Collector(s)
There is a solar collector to capture the available sunlight and prevent that gathered heat from escaping. This component is where the heat exchange process takes place, and the solar power from the sun is used to heat up your water.
The Hot Water Storage
Once the water has been heated up, it needs to be stored somewhere until you’re ready to use it. The hot water storage tank will reach the filled point and keep the water warm until it’s used.
The Solar Booster
A solar booster is a useful component that is usually included with your solar hot water system. It’s powered by electricity or gas, and it can heat your water when the sun is less powerful from clouds or night time conditions. This is a useful advantage, and it’s a great way to guarantee your hot water supply all year round. A solar hot water timer can be added so then you are only using the booster for certain hours during the day. If you have solar power it is a good idea to only boost the tank during daylight hours because the solar power system can assist in running costs.
How is a Solar Hot Water System Installed?
The solar power collection panels should be mounted on a surface that gets plenty of sunshine. The solar panels should face north and away from any obstructions that can cause shade. The panels should be angled at around 35º for the best results, but this can vary a little depending on your exact location. Many solar hot water system includes a heavy storage tank that you may have seen on a roof before. Once they are filled with water, these can be very heavy indeed, and it’s important that the roof is checked to make sure it’s structurally sound.
