Advantages of Solar Hot Water System Installation
With the cost of electricity rising significantly in the last few decades, installing a robust solar hot water system can be a cost effective and environmentally friendly way to produce a continuous supply of warm water for your home. They can be used in any climate and are a viable option for use in many Australian commercial and residential properties. A solar hot water system consists of two chief parts; a sequence of solar panels and a storage tank. In two tank systems the solar heater pre-heats water before it is passed to the conventional water tank. As an alternative there are also one tank systems where a backup heater is combined with the solar heater. Once the system is installed it will collect heat from the sun and in turn heat your water.
Although solar hot water systems will typically cost more to buy and install than conventional systems they can be used to save cash in the long run. The amount of savings you will save will depend on many factors including the quantity of hot water you use, your geographic location and the charge of traditional energy like gas and electricity in your area. In order to maximise the effectiveness of the system the solar panels should be installed so that they are south facing and so receive the maximum amount of sunlight through the day.
If you are considering installing solar water heating system and you live in the Australia then you may qualify for a government rebate towards the cost of it. There are many companies that specialise in installing this type of system and which help you claim this rebate. Typically the hot water system will necessitate a maintenance service every 4-6 years.
The most common home green energy systems are airstream turbines and solar panels. Of these two, solar energy panels have emerged as the most accepted, due to their fewer moving parts and as they require a lesser amount of maintenance over the years.
Regrettably, installing a solar power system in your home can be extremely expensive. Having solar power panels competently installed costs at least AUD 4000 - and the price tag only rises rapidly from there. To decrease this huge cost, many homeowners are exploring the prospect of building and installing their own homemade solar panels.
Can the average person really build a home solar power system in their garage or basement? If they could, would it actually be appreciably cheaper than having it professionally installed?
