Solar systems have been on the market for some time and are especially popular in Australia due to our sunny weather that produces solar energy with ease. Australian technology has produced some of the world’s best hot water systems.

Households that are solar powered usually combine it with boosters backed by electricity or gas to maximise the power supply while enjoying cost savings.

New solar batteries are now making household solar energy collection even more effective.

Solar hot water systems are affordable and may have the added incentive of government rebates.

They then generate free energy for your home, which provides you with major energy bill savings in the long term. A wide range of models is now available to our customers in Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Nowra, Shoalhaven and Sutherland.

Our expert plumbers are fully trained in installing new solar hot water systems.

We can also repair an older solar  hot water system on the spot and provide periodic servicing to extend its life. Our qualified plumbers can replace critical parts such as valves, elements, thermostats or anodes, solar collector plates or sensors or evacuated tubes to make the most of your solar hot water system.

We have the knowledge to help you find the best solar hot water system for your household, including what models are available, what size tank you need.

Our experienced plumbers can assess your household usage including hot water taps, the number of people in your household, when they use hot water and what volume needs to be heated in a typical week. We also look at local conditions such as the climate for producing solar energy, other energy sources including gas or electricity supply and any off-peak availability, the water supply, average temperatures, household plumbing, tank location and what local government regulations apply to new solar hot water systems.

With government rebates making solar hot water systems more affordable, our service team will also help you with the paperwork you need to claim any rebate.

Solar Hot Water

A fully new solar hot water system can be installed by a plumber. If you already have the solar panels installed, we can replace your hot water tank within a day.

Solar hot water systems work with nature, and will just keep supplying power for free – you don’t need to panic over paying huge electricity bills.

You can also take pleasure in your solar hot water system reducing carbon emissions from fossil fuels.

Solar hot water tanks can be located indoors or outdoors, and on the roof providing greater home design flexibility, especially where there is limited ground space.

Choose between passive solar water heater with a rooftop tank, or an active solar water heater that pumps water around the home’s pipes using electricity and will suit parts of Australia with less sunlight.

Choose between direct systems or indirect systems where fluid is cycled in the thermal collectors to heat the tank – a more common option in cooler areas.

For budget options the solar hot water collector can be a flat plate rather than an evacuated tube or heat pump system.

For off-the-grid homes, solar hot water is the answer. Fully solar-powered homes can use extensive solar panelling, solar evacuated tube systems, passive solar water heaters and a solar battery for enough power for hot water throughout the year with a back-up fuel generator for emergencies.

Curran Plumbing has access to the big brand products including Rheem, Rinnai and Thermann –  Apricus, Chromagen, Dux, Envirosun, Neopower, Solahart and this means we can answer your call and install a new solar hot water system quickly.

From the first phone call Curran plumbing services were professional, showed up on time for scheduled quote , then me updated when the job was going to be completed . On the day of install all of the staff were well trained , well spoken and installed my new instantaneous gas hot water system like they were installing it in their own home .
