Sustainable savings with Apricus Solar Home Hot Water systems

The collector passively tracks the sun, reaching its peak output earlier in the morning and staying at peak until later in the afternoon than a traditional flat plate collector.

They are high performing in all seasons as they can be positioned more favourably towards the sun. They passively track the sun to reach its peak output earlier in the morning and stay at peak until later in the afternoon.  When high performance is needed in cooler weather, evacuated tubes have a significant advantage over flat plate collectors.

Keeps up with me and the family: I installed our Apricus 40 tube 400L system in the middle of winter last year… the shortest day of the year here on the mid north coast NSW – we had a really nice clear day so I flicked off the booster to “test it out” and we had plenty of hot water for the four of us. We do use the booster after periods of extended rain / cloudy weather – but our hot water bills remain minimal.
