Solar Water Heating

Thermal Collection – Collectors are 85 to 95% efficient

Sunflow Solar transfers radiant heat from the sun into water ready for domestic hot water heating. The hot water cylinder stores the heated water until you need it. You can save up to 70% of your water heating bills, about 40% in winter and maybe 100% in summer.

Hot Water Cylinders / Storage Tanks

We suggest a 300 litre cylinder, closed circuit system with the cylinder located inside your home. The cylinder has an electric element to boost heating when there is not enough solar collection. It is also possible to use gas as the boost.
