Solar Hot Water Systems
Save money, energy, and the environment.
Living in Australia, it only makes sense to harness the clean, inexhaustible and free supply of energy from The Sun.
At Rinnai, we’ve drawn on our 70 years of experience designing and manufacturing hot water units, to develop a range of the most highly efficient solar hot water systems on the market.
What’s more, by installing one of our hot water solar systems, you’ll not only reduce your carbon footprint, you’ll also enjoy savings on the cost of heating your water.
How solar hot water works
Our solar systems are actually very simple. Solar collectors mounted on the roof absorb the energy from The Sun and heat cooler water that flows through pipes just beneath the surface.
This hot water is then transferred to a storage cylinder ready for use. As you use hot water, cold water then flows into the collectors for heating.
To ensure there’s always hot water for those not so sunny days, an electric or gas booster is added to the system.
