Solar Hot Water System | Solar Hot Water Service
Let the Power of the Sun Help Reduce Your Energy Costs by up to 80%!
If you have a gas or electric storage tank water, you pay dearly for the privilege of having hot water when you need it. Typically, in fact, electric water heaters consume more electricity in your home than anything except your heating and cooling system. And maybe your pool pump.
If you’re at the point where you’ve had it up to “here” with energy bills, Kalamunda Plumbing can demonstrate how a new solar water heater can reduce your hot-water energy costs by up to 80%!
The cornerstone of your system will be roof-mounted solar collectors. They’re job is to harness the power of the sun to heat the water contained in your ground- or roof-mounted storage tank.
While a solar water heater can provide up to 80% of your family’s hot water needs, what about the rest of the time? Don’t worry, we have that covered, too, with you your choice of a gas or electric booster for those cloudy days when the sun just won’t cooperate.
Flat-Plate Collectors | Evacuated Tubes
There was a time when your only option for collecting solar rays was flat-plate collectors. But now you have the option to outfit your solar water heater with evacuated tubes, instead. These are rapidly gaining in popularity and, once you consider the following, it’s easy to understand why:
- With more surface area exposed to the sun, evacuated tubes are better sunlight collectors than flat plate systems.
- They’re 163% more efficient in transferring heat in Western Australia’s solar intensive climate!
- Also efficient in subzero temperatures.
- If a tube breaks down, it can be easily and affordably replaced.
- Outperform flat-plate collectors in overcast conditions.
- Don’t have the same corrosion problems.
Even though evacuated tube systems can cost more than those with flat-plate collectors, is the added cost worth it? Kalamunda Plumbing can help you decide.

Solar Rebates | How a Solar Water Heater Can Pay for Itself
Solar rebates through STCs (Small Technology Certificates) are still available to help offset the cost of your solar water heater. Even better, Kalamunda Plumbing will deduct the value of STCs from the installed price and handle the claim for you. The exceptions are: “supply only” water heaters, those fitted to a new home as a “plonk on”, or any solar water heater installed on a commercial or rental property.When you add up the total of your government rebates and how much you’ll save each year in utility costs, your solar water heater and pay for itself. The timetable depends on several factors…your Kalamunda Plumbing service professional will be glad to tell you more.
