Solar Hot Water Systems
Split or Roof Mounted System?
Electric or gas boosted system?
Frost Protection needed?
For full (warranted by the manufacturer) frost protection you will need a Split Evacuated Tube System.
Split SystemsYou may choose to install only the panels on your roof. This maintains a neat, slimline profile and makes it easier to service the water tank on the ground.

Roof Mounted SystemsInstalling the tank on the roof leaves more room on the ground, and has no moving parts. This is ideal if space is an issue.

Heat Pump & Gas Hot Water Systems
We understand that installing a solar power system may not be an option for everyone. There are a range of issues where a solar power system may not be suitable; such as homes with not enough sun, limited roof space, installation or it may clash with your aesthetic vision. Instead, we can install an energy efficient heat pump or gas hot water systems. Both system types are smart choices and offer excellent efficiency and significantly lower operating costs than traditional electric hot water systems, among other benefits.
If you want to save money and reduce your environmental impact, but your house doesn’t receive enough daily sun, choose a heat pump or gas hot water system.

Solar Hot Water Rebates
Small Technology Credits
Under the Federal Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), when you install an eligible system, you may claim a set number of these STCs.
This number is based on the amount of electricity in megawatt hours (MWh) displaced by your solar water heater or heat pump over the course of its lifetime of up to 10 years, where one STC equals one megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity generated or displaced.
The number of certificates you can claim may vary depending on your geographic location and in NSW approximately 20 STC’s are generated for every 1kW of energy displaced. The current STC value is $37 but varies subject to the market.
All Superior Solar hot water products have the highest STC entitlement. This is applied at the point of sale and all paperwork is completed for you at the time of installation.

What is the life expectancy of my solar hot water system?
What is the difference between a heat pump and a Solar Hot Water System?
Solar Hot Water Systems use the sun’s energy 80% of the time to heat your water. Systems are either gas or electric boosted for the remainder of the time.
Solar Hot Water Systems require sunshine and are cheaper to run. Heat Pumps are the best alternative in a shady environment.
