- Peace of mind – Products are SABS approved, aesthetically pleasing, and suitable for all roof types.
Solar water geysers provide reliable hot water while reducing our global carbon footprint, and of course, saving you money. Water heating is generally the highest consumer of energy in our homes and businesses and is a good starting point towards conserving energy. Although initial investment is seemingly high, the benefits and payback periods are extremely rewarding.
Your payback time will depend on your energy usage, electricity tariff and the size of geyser that you need. We’ll assist you with this calculation but often show a payback time of between 2-4 years. While this may seem like a long time – consider your monthly savings during that time where you can shave up to 40% off your monthly electricity bill.
Based on years of experience, ongoing research and client feedback, we offer 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 or 500 litre water tanks to support your water heating requirements.
Each of these products is made from only the best quality materials. One key difference is that we have chosen products that use an indirect thermosyphon system. This means that the technology heats an anti-freeze fluid that flows through the solar collectors (panels) and then efficiently exchanges energy inside the tank to heat your water. This anti-freeze fluid works reliably in all weather conditions, including extreme heat or cold. Older technology relies on your water running through the solar collectors directly, however calcium build-up in the pipes can cause wear and tear.
