If you don’t ever want to run the risk of cold showers, a solar hot water system could be exactly what you’re looking for!
These systems use energy from the sun to warm your water, and if you have the correct size tank for your needs, there should be enough hot water stored from the day before.
Solar hot water systems are able to store more water than a conventional tank, and even if you have extra guests in your home, or it is cloudy, there is always a booster on hand.
While you may never need to use the electricity or gas booster, this can give you peace of mind that if your water drops below the temperature on the thermostat, a bit of extra power can be supplied by conventional means.
Even if you live in a cooler area, you can still benefit from a solar hot water system as evacuated tubes can be set up in a particular angle or in a certain direction that will garner as much sunshine as possible.
These solar collectors are designed to maximise heat absorption even in winter, so there is no need to be concerned about running out of hot water.
Plus, Apricus systems come with a 15 year guarantee. This means you do not need to worry about the system going out with a bang leaving you in hot – or cold – water.
Rather you can experience hot showers, without any environmental worries.
As these systems rely on the sun’s rays to create warmth, greenhouse gases are almost zero. On the other hand, electric powered hot water systems create around four tonnes of greenhouse gases every year. This average amount is roughly the same as what is created by a mid-size car in the same period, according to Choice Magazine’s Chris Barnes, who is the magazine’s team leader for household product content and testing.
So, why not call the friendly team at Apricus to discuss your needs so you can enjoy environmentally-friendly, cheaper hot water in your home or business?
