Solar Hot Water System Installation


Solar hot water is an obvious inclusion in our sustainable renovation. We install a 250 litre storage system on the garage roof next to our photovoltaic panels. The system is gas boosted to ensure that even on cold winter days we will have piping hot water 24/7. The system will further reduce electricity consumption in the house and save hundreds of dollars per year.

Solar Water Heater System Installation

solar panels

We install our gas boosted solar hot water system.

connect heater

The collector panels are mounted on the garage roof directly above the storage tank.

adjust hot water

The gas booster is adjustable so we can fine tune the hot water supply to maximize its efficiency.

mix in cold water

Getting the temperature right means you don’t have to mix in too much cold water.

bleed the system

Once it is up and running, the system is bled and we are ready to roll.

solar panels at 9 degrees

The panels are on the north face of the house and angled at about 9 degrees.

flume hot system

Because we are installing the storage tank inside the garage it will need to be flumed out into the atmosphere to comply with safety regulations.

water recycler

This is part of our gas boosted hot water system installation. It’s called the water guardian and what it does, when you turn on the hot tap instead of allowing the cold water to run out first before the hot water arrives it recycles it back into the storage tank.

Just press the button, it comes on we wait for it to stop.

instant hot water

There we are, piping hot water strait away. This device saves 16000 litres of water per annum per outlet. Worth doing.
