We live in a changing world. No more than a hundred years ago, our great grandfathers and grandfathers used coal for heating their houses and food, and a hot shower was a luxury only a few people could afford.
Today, most of the people in Australia heat their shower water using gas heating, what was a luxury before, today is something within the reach of almost everyone, and yet, there are more changes coming to our lives – some of them we can’t even imagine.
One of those changes is the use of solar energy, and here in Australia a trending technology is the solar hot water system.
What is a solar hot water system? It is a technology that harvests the power of the sun for heating the water in your house. This new innovation is proving to be a great replacement of gas heating, and thousands of people in our country and around the world are starting to use it.
The system is actually pretty simple, some sun collectors are installed on your roof. During the day the collectors heat a non-toxic antifreeze mix that triggers the activation of a pump and this pump moves solar-heated mix from the roof down into the heat exchanger that indirectly heats the water supply of your house. This system works during the day as long as there is heat on the roof.
The solar hot water system kit also includes special backup equipment that will provide you with hot water even during cloudy days or during the night. The system is also designed to work during cold winters and they include an overheat protection that will avoid any problem during hot summers.
As we’ve said before, this system is being used increasingly in several parts of our country, especially in remote regions where gas heating is very expensive or not available at all. But you don’t need to live in those kinds of regions to use this technology. In fact it’s available for everyone.
If you use large amounts of hot water or if your family is a large one (four or more members), the solar hot water system cost will have a fast return on investment. You will see in no time how much money you save with a solar water heater.
