Heating Water With Electricity Costs An Arm And A Leg!
Did you know that whenever you open a hot water tap in your home, it is as if you flick a switch that turns on ONE HUNDRED light bulbs? Each using 40 watts of electricity.
This is a horrible!
And the implications are horrible, as we contemplate not only the future of our planet, but also the family budget. On average, water heating accounts for between 40% and 60% of household electricity costs.
What Can We Do To Change Things?
One of the best ways to reduce household costs is to install a solar geyser. Surely one of the greatest inventions of our time!
A solar geyser:
Provides an endless supply of hot water.
Runs on green power, using an energy supply that is completely sustainable.
Runs on FREE energy and begins to save you money from the moment it is installed.
Reduces household dependence on electricity.
In addition to all of these things, a solar water heating system is an automatic savings plan. It is an investment, and it will add value to your property.
The Components Of Our Installation?
Our SOLARPRO system for domestic water heating has two main components:
A well-insulated storage tank, or geyser, which is fitted with an element and a thermostat. We use a geyser which is produced locally and is SABS-approved. It carries a 10-year guarantee.
A SOLARPRO heat-collecting panel, mounted below the level of the storage tank. It is made from SABS-approved materials and guaranteed for 15 years.
What If You Already Have A Geyser?
A solar panel can be coupled to a conventional high-pressure geyser. Read more…
How Does The System Work?
In any structure, the natural forces of convection power will cause hot water to rise and cold water to fall. Read more…
