We are agents for several evacuated tube systems and flat plate collectors, so please call if interested in a no-obligation quote on a new solar system, either retrofitted to your existing home or installed in a new home. Quotes are able to be done off the plan.
We are proud to be service agents for SolarHart, GreenGlo, Edwards and travel the Bay of Plenty offering installation and Servicing. We also service and repair many other types of solar ranging from Solar 60 to Azzuro and Nova etc.
Our product specialisation includes the more common water heating options of solar water heating. These do need to be matched with the correct size HWC, as lowest price and smallest system does not suit every intended use, thereby avoiding client disappointment. I would not expect a smaller solar system connected to a 180 litre hot water cylinder to perform well for a family of 4 or more people for example.
For us quality of installation and correct specification comes before price. A well designed and specified system will offer savings of up to 75% of hot water heating if sized correctly. For performance and power savings solar hot water offers better value than solar power installed.
A sufficiently sized solar system connected to a 300 HWC would generate approximately 2800kw/hr on a yearly average, this would provide almost all hot water heating over 7 to 8 months of the spring to autumn period with water at times sitting at 80 degrees in the HWC, and then heat the water to approximately 40 degrees in winter which is topped up by the electric boost element.
We have installed many higher systems that include gas boosting and transfer valves to maximise the stand-alone appeal for clients wanting to use less grid power. Perfect for the sustainability enthusiast wanting to install photovoltaic systems as hot water is the highest energy user in the property.
We offer many alternative systems that range from domestic supply only, with gas boost or electrical back up; to large scale commercial systems for campgrounds or cow sheds.
We have experienced solar technicians that are also licensed plumbers. Our team have the benefit of many installations completed in all brands and componentry, not many companies are able to offer this level of experience. Due to the nature of our expertise we travel widely to install and repair all types of solar system and also bring them up to required code. We cover the Bay of Plenty for this specialised work.
As a word of caution, please be aware that all solar systems and componentry are not created equal. There are many cheaper solar systems imported from China with very limited warranty. We only fit and supply the best possible brands and componentry for longevity. There have been many low-cost installers over the years but they have faded away leaving their unsupported product for others to service and repair these systems.
As Solahart Service Agents in the Bay of Plenty we are the first call for these amazingly efficient systems when they require servicing. Unfortunately many have not been installed correctly and we adjust this when we do a complete service that should be done every 10 years. Please see our services and repair page for further information.
