Solar hot water systems use roof mount solar collectors to absorb energy from the sun, which is then used to heat water that flows into a storage tank.

Solar hot water systems can provide you with free hot water, however they are sun-dependent and on cloudy days this system may experience little to no solar heated water. This is why solar hot water systems are designed with a water heating booster that is powered by electricity or gas and will turn on when the system senses that there is not enough hot water in the storage tank.

It is best to seek expert advice to help you decide on whether a solar water heater is best for you and Safeguard Plumbers are here to help.
