  • 1 or 2 storey building 
  • Gas or Electric Boosted
  • Is there a solar system already in place

  • How big your tank is 250, 315, or 400L tank (affects on how many installers needed)
  • How many evacuated tubes to install 22, 30, or 44
All these factors are what our installers consider when pricing your installation. Of course their team will take care of all aspects of the installation process including (based on Electric Boosted Split System):
  • Supply and installation of all associated pipework fittings and valves needed

solar hot water system diagram

Ever wondered how gas or electric boosted solar hot water systems work? Here's a quick rundown based on the above diagram:

1. Cold water enters storage tank from mains

2. If there is heat available on the roof, the pump station will switch on and circulate water through the solar collector

3. Water is heated in the collected and returned to the storage tank. This process is repeated until the top out temperature is reached

4. Hot water is tempered down to a safe level (around 50 degrees Celsius) and supplied to the home fixtures

5. If not enough heat is generated from the sun, and electric or gas booster simply tops it up as required
