Solar Geysers


For illustrative purposes, the table below will present an 8% increase in tariffs for 5 years and a further 5% increase in tariffs for the 5 years following that. (It is more than likely that these figures may be more than double that, however conservative estimates are used here)

These estimates are based on a 30% saving based on previous experience for a family of MORE than 2 people.

What sizes do the solar water heaters come in?

The thermosiphon systems are manufactured in 150litre, 200litre and 300litre. Commercial size installations also available.

Do I really save money?

Depending on the number of people in your household, savings vary between 30- 50% of your electricity bill. In cases where there are more than 7 people even higher savings have been recorded.

What about on cold and wet days?

All our solar water heaters have electrical elements built into the tank. In cases where there is not enough sunlight the element will automatically heat the water using Eskom or municipality power.

How do I know this is good quality?

Our systems are all registered and tested by SABS. Our tanks and panels come with 10 year warranties and are approved by insurance companies. The systems are all built locally and service items are always available.

Is my roof structure okay for solar?

The majority of houses in South Africa are suitable for solar water heaters, but for peace of mind an installation team will do a site visit to ensure suitability.

What size system should I buy?

South Africans typically are still wasteful of electricity and generally use between 50-75litres of hot water per person per day.

What is the lifespan of the system?

Our systems are warrantied for 10 years but flat plate collectors have been used in countries similar to ours in climate and are still going strong after 25 years plus.

How often must the system be serviced?

Our systems have no sacrificial anode so very little maintenance is required. A good cleaning of the panel is recommended every two years and a service call after five years to ensure all valves and connections are still in order is required.

Do the systems qualify for rebates?

All our systems are SABS approved and are registered on the Eskom IDM program to qualify for rebates.
