How solar hot water systems work: Flat solar collectors placed on the roof absorb the sun's rays. The collectors have copper tubes inside in which water circulates, cold water then becoming hot water before returning to the insulated storage tank. Generally the system can provide all to half of your hot water used in your house depending on where you live, the weather conditions, and the usage of hot water. In Queensland, you can get up to 100%, this is reduced in cooler climate such as Tasmania. When the sun is not strong enough or with excess use, an electric booster will kick in and heat up the water to the required temperature. Flat plate collectors are perfect for solar water heating in most coastal areas of Australia. Evacuated tube collectors are ideal for weather below 3°C or where frosts can be expected.
Why GERMAN TECH is the best choice
The ALANOD Mirotherm® glass coating increases the heat penetration. So it heats water even on cloudy days, then uses less electricity boosting. This is German technology designed for European cloudy weather.
The roof mount thermosiphon tank is marine grade stainless steel SUS316L with metal ends, and has a 10yr. warranty.
The ground mount split system uses a top tier Grundfos pump.
All copper and brassware fittings are the highest quality and meet Australian standards.
Local service agents and installations are performed by QBCC licensed plumbers.
Superior efficiency than most brands, thus higher STC rebates. Comparison chart 📊
