Why go solar?

Advantages of solar hot water systems

Solar hot water systems come with several compelling advantages, chief among them being their ability to lower energy bills through the use of free solar energy. They’re a green alternative, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional fossil fuel-based systems. In addition to the environmental and cost benefits, solar hot water systems often come with government incentives, making the initial investment more affordable. They also tend to have long lifespans with relatively low maintenance needs, providing a reliable hot water supply.

Too Hot To Handle helps homeowners in Geelong navigate the installation and maintenance of these systems, ensuring that they are optimally designed and positioned to maximise the capture of solar energy throughout the year.

Is it worth it?

Cost comparison of solar hot water

When comparing solar hot water systems to traditional gas or electric heaters, the initial setup cost for solar can be higher, but the long-term savings are substantial. Solar systems capitalise on the sun’s energy, which doesn’t cost anything to harness, leading to significantly reduced running costs. Over time, these savings can offset the upfront cost difference. Additionally, with potential government rebates and incentives for renewable energy installations, the effective cost can be even more competitive.

Too Hot To Handle provides detailed cost-benefit analyses for Geelong residents, illustrating how investing in a solar hot water system can lead to considerable savings over the system’s lifespan, alongside the added benefit of a reduced environmental impact.

Frequently asked questions

Solar hot water systems are designed to maximise the absorption of solar energy, even on cloudy days or during the winter months. While the efficiency may be lower compared to sunny days, the systems often include a booster that can be powered by electricity or gas to ensure a consistent hot water supply. Too Hot To Handle installs systems with well-insulated storage tanks to retain heat, meaning your hot water needs are covered regardless of the weather. In Geelong’s varied climate, these systems are an effective way to ensure year-round hot water with minimal additional energy use.

Most homes can accommodate a solar hot water system, provided there is adequate space for the solar collectors and a suitably oriented area to install them. Roof strength, angle, and the direction of the home also play a role in determining suitability. Too Hot To Handle conducts thorough assessments of homes in Geelong to ensure that the system can be installed effectively and to maximise solar gain, advising on the best system type and configuration for each unique situation.

The payback period for a solar hot water system depends on various factors, including the size of the system, the initial cost, the amount of hot water used, and the cost of the alternative heating energy (like gas or electricity). Typically, homeowners begin to see returns on their investment through reduced energy bills within a few years. Too Hot To Handle helps Geelong homeowners understand their specific payback period by providing personalised calculations that take into account local energy prices and the homeowner’s individual usage patterns.
