Hot Water Systems

Solar Hot Water Systems Newcastle, Lake Macquarie & Maitland

If you are looking to upgrade your existing water heater or if you are building a brand new home, you simply cannot go past a solar hot water system for energy efficiency, reliability and cost savings.
Putting a solar in your home is a big decision, make sure you do your research and talk to a solar expert before committing to a solar unit.


There are several options when it comes to solar hot water systems, you can either have solar panel collectors or evacuated tube collectors.
The flat panel collectors have copper pipes running through them which is connected to a water tank on the roof, the sun heats the copper which is then thermo-siphoned out of the tank.
Evacuated tube collectors also have copper pipe running through them however the tube acts as a vacuum and then slowly circulates water into a water tank below.


There is also the option of having a gas boosted system or an electric boost. If by chance your system does not receive enough sunlight during a period of time to heat the water an electric or gas booster will kick in to take over the heating.

Government Rebates are available to qualifying residential and commercial premises in Australia that install Solar Panels and other Renewable Energy Systems.


These rebates can mean significant reductions in the cost of Solar Systems -and have been designed to encourage Australia’s use of renewable energy.


The rebate program – which is part of Australia’s Renewable Energy Target – means that when you install a Solar System, a number of Renewable Energy Certificates are created. These Certificates (referred to as STC’s – or Small scale Technology Certificates) are then purchased by Energy Companies as part of their Renewable Energy commitments.


Here at Hunter Eco Plumbing we deduct the rebate from your invoice to save you having to lodge all the paperwork and wait for the payment!


There are also several additional incentives and grants available for commercial systems. Beau would be happy to discuss these with you.
