Solar hot water is an excellent choice as a renewable energy source to reduce your carbon footprint, and it is a sensible long-term investment. For the average household an effective solar water heating system will provide up to 75 % of your annual hot water needs, cut about 2200kWh from your annual electricity use, and provide savings of approximately $450-$700 a year (depending on the cost of your electricity or gas supply).
The quality of workmanship used to install your solar hot water system is critically important, and will impact on the savings you make. Call us today.
