Solar Water Heating
We will support and advice you on the best solar water systems for your situation.
Solar water heating uses the sun’s rays for heating water which is then stored in a hot water tank, the same way as electric heating, which is then ready to use in the bathroom, kitchen, garage, laundry and anywhere else that you use hot water within your home.
The energy is gathered using a solar photovoltaic system using solar panels. Solar radiation is a renewable source of energy, it is non-polluting on the environment and it is free.
Solar heating may not be enough to meet all of your hot water needs depending on the strength of the sun on any given day. It is standard to have the backup energy for dull days so that you will not run out of hot water.
At present approximately 1.6% of New Zealand homeowners have solar water heating, this number is growing every year as the benefits of a solar water heating systems are being realised.

What Do You Need To Know
About Solar Hot Water Heating
- Solar water heating is not appropriate for all houses. Your house, primarily the roof, must meet a number of criteria to be suitable for solar water heating panels on the roof. You must have a roof that is facing north in order to receive the sun’s rays, and your property/area must have relatively good all year round sun. Your roof must also be large enough for the solar panels to provide hot water to all of the house occupants.
- New Zealand has great conditions for solar water heating. With approximately 2000 bright sunshine hours that New Zealand receives every year, solar water heating can meet between 50 and 75 percent of your hot water needs.
- The hot water tank is another factor to consider if you are thinking about solar water heating for your new or existing home. If you are designing a house, you will simply need to install the specially designed hot water tank for solar heating. It is important that you choose the correct size water tank to match the usage.
