Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays in roof mounted solar collectors and transferring it to the water stored in the ground mounted storage tank. Ground mounted systems employ inbuilt pumps to push the fluid through the system. The split design of the system reduces the roof’s structural load, as only the low profile solar collectors are installed on the roof.
Which system you choose will depend on where in Australia you live, which way your home faces and even the pitch of your roof. So it’s important to talk to your local Rheem Solar Specialist about the Rheem solar water heater that is ideal for you. And, your local Rheem Solar Specialist has all the latest information on the currently available Solar Incentives – ask them how much you can claim.
