Gas Boosted Solar Hot Water
Australia enjoys the perfect climate for harnessing solar energy to power your home, generate hot water, reduce your reliance on grid generated energy and lower your carbon footprint. The Solahart name is synonymous with the solar industry both here in Australia and around the world. We produced our first solar product in 1953, and have since installed over One million units in more than 70 countries.
Depending on your geographical location, you will get a varying amount of sunshine. However, even in the sunniest parts of our great nation, there are days when the clouds roll in, blocking the sun and reduce the efficiency of solar water heaters. Fortunately, Solahart solar hot water systems have a number of options available to boost your tank during these times.
All systems are supplied from the factory with an in-built, thermostatically controlled, electric booster. The electric booster can be installed with an automatic timer or a manual booster switch, so you are in complete control of your boosting patterns.
Alternatively, our gas boosted models offer a practical solution to back up boosting. When a hot tap is opened, solar heated water flows from the solar water heater through a special solar compatible instantaneous gas water heater. Temperature sensors within the instantaneous gas heater measure the incoming water temperature. If it is less than a pre-set minimum, the instantaneous gas heater ignites and brings the water temperature up to the set level. If the incoming water temperature is above the pre-set minimum, nothing happens, and the solar heater water flows to the opened tap. This means you get the best of both worlds - the energy efficiency of a solar water heater with ‘on tap’ performance of an instantaneous gas water heater.
For even greater energy savings, our range of solar power systems provide electricity generated free from the sun. The great news is that solar power and solar water heating reduce your greenhouse gas emissions and there are government rebates and solar incentives to help you make the switch to solar.
