Gauteng has a very sunny climate which is ideal for solar geyser installation. Since solar geysers use the UV rays of the sun, it is a cost-effective way to produce hot water in an environmentally friendly way. If we experience overcast days where the solar geyser cannot capture the UV rays as it should, we make sure that you have an option to switch to an electrical geyser heating system if it is required.

This will obviously only be done if you consent to it. If the water drops to below a certain degree Celsius, then the electrical element will kick in and heat up the water to a set temperature.

So, how do solar water geysers actually work?

Here’s a quick explanation of how solar geysers work. A solar geyser system consists of a water tank and a solar panel. The solar panel is also called the collector as it collects energy from the sun. The water tank should ideally be positioned above the collector. When the sun’s UV’s hit the collector, the water in the collector is warmed up and this heated water then pushes up and is then directed towards the water storage tank (or the geyser).

At the same time, the cold water in the water tank flows downwards to the collector where it is heated up again. As this water heats up, it gets pushed back up through the collector to the water tank. And so, this cycle continues. When there is no more colder water in the solar geyser, then the cycle will stop. However, while there is colder water in the solar geyser, it will flow down to the collector, get warmed up and then it will be pushed back up to flow into the solar geyser tank.

In certain instances, it won’t be practical to position the collector below the solar geyser tank. In these scenarios we’ll have to use a circulation pump to push the cold water from the solar geyser water tank back to the collector.

Benefits of a solar geyser installation

Saving on electricity costs. Electricity is getting more and more expensive in South Africa. When you have a solar geyser, you are using the energy of the sun to heat up your water. You could save up to 40% on electricity costs by installing a solar geyser.

You are switching to green energy. You are not burning fossil fuels or wood to heat your water. Instead, you are using the energy of the sun. Remember, Eskom have to burn fossil fuels to provide electricity to us. So, by switching to solar geysers, you are doing your bit for a greener and healthier environment.

You’re not dependent on the Eskom load shedding schedules. When Eskom cuts our power, you don’t have hot water. By installing a solar geyser, you are not dependent on Eskom to provide energy for hot water in your home.
