The idea of using the sun to heat water has been around for more than a century, but it is steadily becoming more popular with homes and businesses alike as time goes on.
In fact, it is becoming a more common as a way to lessen reliance on fossil fuels. While Australia is the perfect location for solar hot water systems thanks to plentiful sunshine hours, this is not the only location where these systems are being used.
A New York Times article from September 3 states China is one of the leading countries in the world where solar hot water systems are concerned, with many affordable options on the market.
However, if you look at these systems in terms of a per capita installation, Cyprus comes up trumps with nine out of 10 homes boasting a solar hot water unit. This country also provides homeowners with incentives – for instance, the cost of their investment will be reimbursed, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency.
The latest study from the Agency indicates the market for solar collectors has grown by almost 10 percent worldwide in the period from 2011 – 2012. This growth looks set to continue as developments are continually made in this technology.
Evacuated tube systems are the most efficient solar hot water collectors on the Australian market and are able to passively track the sun so they can make the most of the morning, afternoon and evening rays.
Down Under, many homes and businesses are opting to heat their water from the sun, including commercial undertakings that require large amounts of hot water, such as dairy farms and breweries.
The size of your business is no obstacle, as there are plenty of options. If you are curious to see what will work best for your needs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the friendly team at Apricus for more information.
