Solar Hot Water Systems

Evacuated Tube Technology

This style of Solar Hot Water technology is a highly efficient thermal solar system, suitable for both domestic and commercial hot water heating. There are advantages to the efficiency benefits provided by evacuated tubes, combined with the innovative heat pipes and glass wool insulation, this style of solar collector represents the latest and most efficient in thermal solar technology.

The evacuated tube design has a round absorber so has the advantage of achieving passive tracking of the sun, providing more stable heat output throughout the day and not just during the midday sunlight hours. This system style is lightweight, easy to install, practically maintenance free, with flexible mounting and size options and great lengthy manufacture warranty period offered.


Flat Panel Collectors

This style of Solar Hot Water technology is traditionally what we are more used to seeing on our rooftops, suitable for both domestic and commercial hot water heating. It’s advantage of being more economical to purchase, without compromising on efficiency. Traditional flat panel collectors mounted on the roof, absorbing the suns energy on offer are two options available for Tank mounting. The space saving rooftop mount – all neat and up out of the way. Then there is the advantage of the split system style consisting of a vertical ground standing storage tank, this style is usually installed when the visual impact is required to be kept to a minimum or the roof structure is not able to hold a tank. No matter what you preference is making the Solar Savings and the production of hot water is what counts.


Heat Pump from Chromagen

With heat pump technology you can harvest the FREE energy in the air to heat your water and reduce water heating energy consumption, whilst providing steaming hot water all day and night.

Heat pumps utilise an ingenious technology to efficiently transfer thermal energy directly from the surrounding air and into water, so they do not rely on the direct sun or fossil fuels to provide a constant energy source.

An energy efficient hot water system such as a heat pump is a great way for households to reduce their energy consumption and cost of living. They are ideal for the replacement of old electric water heaters, where residential gas reticulation is not available and when roof-mounted solar collectors are not feasible.

• Ideal for new homes or for replacement of old electric storage water heaters
• Environmentally-friendly operation, using up to 65% less energy than conventional electric water heaters
• Extracts the free heat energy from the air to reduce power consumption
