HOT WATER SYSTEMS
Solar Hot Water
Flat Panels Collectors
Evacuated Tubes Collectors (heat pipe and U-Tube)
Electric and Gas Hot Water Systems
The sun's energy is captured by a stylish, low profile collector on your roof and the water is heated up when water flows through the collector and sent to a well insulated water tank at ground level by a circulation pump. The system can be boosted, if required by gas or electricity. For a large part of the year you will find that you will not need any boosting due to the performance of these collectors.
Heat pumps deliver hot water by efficiently utilising a free and abuntant source of energy- the heat that is in the air around us. Refrigerant vapour compression technology enables the heat pump to intensify this heat, which is used to produce hot water. Heat pumps are more efficient during warmer months, and will operate for less hours during the day than in colder months of the year.
Flat plate collectors work on copper pipes running through a glass covered collector, often connected to a water storage tank on the roof. The hot water can then thermo-siphon itself in and out of the tank, thus heating the water.
Flat Panels vs Evacuated Tube Collectors
While evacuated tube technology costs more, benefits definitely outweigh the cost. Evacuated tube collector based systems:
- Have a greater surface area exposed to the sun at any time
- Are more efficient in transferring heat in Australian conditions
- Are durable and if a tube should be broken, it is easily and cheaply replaced
- They can be used in sub-zero temperatures and provide excellent performance in overcast conditions
- They do not have the same level of corrosion problems as flat panel collectors
