Will I still have hot water on a cloudy day?

Yes, solar hot water systems are designed to work in all weathers, however, the output may be reduced on overcast or rainy days so many people choose to have a system with a gas or electric booster.

Our Apricus solar hot water systems also have evacuated tubes for improved cold-weather performance and passive sun-tracking technology.

Can I get a rebate for installing my solar hot water system in Coffs Harbour?

Yes, you may be eligible for STC rebates offered by the Federal Government. Unfortunately there are currently no state specific rebates available from the NSW Government. We also have a handy rebate calculator to find out just how much you could be entitled to.

Do I need to clean the panels?

As the panels are usually high up on a roof, cleaning them can be a challenge, hot water system panels don’t need regular cleaning and have self-cleaning hydrophobic technology.

However, if you want to ensure your solar panel’s optimum performance for many years to come, routine roof cleaning can be a good idea to increase efficiency over time.

How long does a solar water heater keep water hot?

The length of time a solar water heater keeps water hot depends on various factors, such as the size of the system, the weather conditions and the amount of hot water being used. Generally, a well-designed and properly installed solar water heating system can provide hot water for up to 24 hours, even on cloudy days.

Does solar hot water save money?

Yes, solar hot water systems can save you money on your energy bills. Traditional water heaters rely on gas or electricity to heat the water, which can be expensive. In contrast, solar hot water systems use free energy from the sun to heat the water, which can significantly reduce your energy bills. In general, larger households or those that use a lot of hot water can save more money with solar hot water systems, since they are using more energy to heat water. Moreover, solar hot water systems require less maintenance compared to traditional water heaters, which can result in additional savings. They also have a longer lifespan and can significantly increase the value of your home.

Does solar hot water work at night?

Solar hot water systems rely on sunlight to heat water, so they are most effective during the day when the sun is shining. However, many solar hot water systems have backup heating elements that can provide hot water when no sunlight is available. Most systems work hard during the day to heat and store water so that it will be hot enough to use at night and through to the next morning.

Are solar hot water systems worth it?

Whether or not a solar hot water system is worth it depends on several factors, such as the cost of installation, the amount of hot water you use and the cost of traditional energy sources in your area. In general, solar hot water systems can be a worthwhile investment if you live in an area with plenty of sunlight and high energy costs. They can also increase the value of your home and reduce your carbon footprint.
