These systems need full access to sunny conditions year round, if shaded then a Sanden Heat Pump is a high quality, efficient alternative.
Split or Roof Mounted System?
Do you want your tank on the roof or on the ground?
Performance of both is similar so typically aesthetics & space on the ground drives this decision.
Electric or gas boosted system?
Electric boosting comes with a lower initial outlay.
Gas boosting has a lower running cost but is more costly to install. Accessibility to gas at your home usually drives this decision.
Frost Protection needed?
If you live in a frost prone area this is essential.
For full (warranted by the manufacturer) frost protection down to -12 degrees you will need a Split Evacuated Tube System.

Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly can you replace my old hot water system with a new solar hot water system?
We can replace your old system within 24 hours. If you need some more time to decide what system suits you best we can install a temporary tank in the interim.
Am I helping the environment by switching to solar?
Yes! According to Australian Government, water heating is the highest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions and is responsible for 30% of home energy use, excluding the family car.
Will I run out of hot water?
We provide a choice of back up gas or electric boosters giving you peace of mind, ensuring you have hot water all day and night.
Are there rebates available?
Federal rebates are available now on eligible energy efficient products including solar or heat pump hot water systems.
How does my Solar Hot Water System work?
Your solar collectors (usually mounted on a north facing roof) absorb heat from the sun. This heat then warms the water in the collector and is directed back to the storage tank ready for use.
Where can I put my hot water tank?
The tank can be positioned on the ground or roof of your home.
What is the life expectancy of my solar hot water system?
You can expect your solar hot water system to last you 15 to 25 years.
What is the difference between a heat pump and a Solar Hot Water System?
Heat pumps use heat from the air to heat your water, and while they still use electricity, they generally only use one third that of a standard electric heater.
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 or if no room on the roof for solar.
