Solar Hot Water Newcastle
With Australia's abundant sunshine, it makes great sense to get your Energy Free From the Sun. Solahart has two great solar solutions to reduce your household energy use; solar hot water and solar power (PV). A Solahart solar water heater could reduce the energy needed to heat your water by 65%-70% depending on your location and the amount of hot water you use. By installing a Solahart solar power system, you could save a significant amount on your electricity bill, depending on the size of the system and the amount of power you consume, especially during daylight hours. Both solar hot water and solar power systems also reduce greenhouse gas emissions, so they are great for the environment as well as your hip pocket.
Solahart launched our first solar water heater in 1953 and today we have installed over one million systems around the world. For Hot Water Free from the Sun we offer three solutions; roof top solar systems, split solar systems, and heat pumps.
Roof Top Solar System
The traditional Solahart roof top system usually features two solar collectors (panels) and a storage tank which are installed on the roof in a North-facing location. The roof top solar water heater works by drawing the sun’s energy into the collectors via a heat-absorbent coating. Fluid within the collectors is then heated and naturally rises (without the aid of pumps), into the connected storage tank. Roof-mounted water heaters are the most popular option for home owners because there is usually ample roof space for the tank and collectors, thus freeing up valuable ground space. Your roof should be unshaded and have a Northerly aspect for best results. The team at Solahart Newcastle will access your home's suitability for solar and provide you with a fully detailed quote.
Split Solar System
A Solahart split system solar water heater operates with the tank located on the ground. The solar collectors are installed in a suitable North-facing location on the roof and the ground-level storage tank can be positioned either indoors or outdoors. A circulator is included to manage the flow of water between the tank and collectors. A Solahart split system solar water heater is ideal if you prefer a more streamlined look and have the available space at ground level for the storage tank. Ask Solahart Newcastle to give you their recommendation on whether a Solahart split solar system is suitable for your home.
Heat Pump System
If your household’s layout is not suited to solar panels, a heat pump may be a viable alternative. Heat Pumps work by extracting heat from the surrounding air and using this heat to provide you with hot water. The one main benefit is they are not reliant on receiving sunshine.
Solahart Newcastle also offers Solahart solar power systems otherwise known as PV. Solahart's solar power systems use quality panels and inverters, offering big energy savings to homeowners who make the switch. Solahart PV systems are designed and engineered with every component carefully selected to ensure optimum performance and reliability. Whether its solar panels, inverters, racking, rooftop isolators or the installation of the solar system, Solahart will provide a level of quality that will give you peace of mind and great value for money.
Solahart Newcastle backs up every PV system sold with a Solahart warranty which sets us apart from many other solar companies.
