Frequently Asked Questions

When installing a solar hot water system in Sydney, consider the efficiency of solar panels in heating the water and the capacity of the hot water tank. Solar systems use solar power to heat the water, reducing the cost compared to traditional electric systems. Unlike gas systems, solar water heaters rely on solar electricity, making them eco-friendlier and potentially eligible for solar hot water rebates.

The installation cost of a solar hot water system may be higher due to the need for solar panels and a solar PV system. However, the running costs are usually lower as solar energy heats the water. In the long term, a solar system can reduce costs more significantly than a conventional electric hot water tank or gas system.

Solar water heaters use solar power to heat the water tank, making them highly efficient in sunny conditions. In contrast, heat pump systems use ambient air, which can be more consistent. Solar systems might have lower operational costs, especially where solar electricity is abundant.

Key factors include the installer’s experience with solar systems, understanding of solar hot water heating, and ability to integrate the new system with existing electric or gas systems. Ensure the installer is knowledgeable about solar PV systems and the specific requirements of solar hot water system installation.

Yes, Burns Plumbing can install a new solar hot water system and integrate it effectively with your existing gas or electric system. Our expertise ensures that your water is heated efficiently, regardless of the system type.

Solar hot water systems can significantly reduce running costs as they use free solar energy. The maintenance cost for solar systems is usually lower compared to traditional systems, and solar power usage decreases reliance on electric or gas heating, leading to cost savings.

Installing a new solar hot water system enhances your home’s energy efficiency by utilising renewable energy. It’s generally more efficient in sunny climates compared to heat pump systems, which depend on ambient air temperature.

The installation process involves setting up solar panels, a solar PV system, and connecting them to the water heating system. Unlike traditional systems, solar installations require consideration of solar electricity generation and ensuring the solar panels are optimally placed for sunlight exposure.
