Solar Water Heating Installations.

South Africa has experienced sharp increases in the price of electricity over the last few years.

This trend seems set to continue for the foreseeable future, not only are we experiencing rising costs, but Eskom is constantly pleading with consumers to cut electricity consumption to avoid load shedding.

It’s a well known fact that almost half of all power consumed in an average home is utilised by the geyser.

South Africa is blessed with an abundance of free natural sunlight, which can easily be harnessed for the purpose of heating water.

A Solar Water Heating installation is not the same as a solar geyser, it connects to your existing geyser and utilises the suns energy to pre heat the water going into the geyser thereby reducing the amount of electricity your geysers consumes compared to having to heat up water from cold. Depending on your requirements and atmospheric conditions the Solar Heating alone may be sufficient resulting in possible 100% savings.

Installing a hybrid system could reduce your water heating costs to virtually zero and even provide you with hot water during power failures. A heat pump combined with a solar water heater which heats up the water using free natural sunlight before it enters the geyser, the heat pump then only kicks in when the solar energy is insufficient to cover your demand for hot water.

Evacuated tube heat pipe solar collector. The round tube design allows for passive solar tracking providing optimal operation from sunrise to sunset.

The suns energy is absorbed into by a heat pipe inside the evacuated tube heating up a non toxic liquid, the heated vapour rises into the heat exchanger where it heats up the water passing through cooling the vapour and repeating the process.
