Water heating makes up about 50% your household electricity bills, making it one of the biggest contributors to your monthly energy consumption.

By investing in solar geyser installations, you are able to use the power of the sun to heat your water instead of electricity.

This makes it not only extremely cost effective but also more sustainable while offsetting your carbon footprint.

Thanks to the abundance of sunshine in South Africa all year round, installing a solar geyser can be one of the best long-term investments you can make for your home.

How Do Solar Geysers Work?

Instead of using electricity, solar geysers heat your water up by using energy generated by the sun.

Solar geysers rely on the process of natural convection, which refers to the way in which water rises when it’s warm.

The water heats up as it circulates through the flat panel which is stored on your roof and subsequently rises up and into the water tank above the panels.

As this takes place, cooler water in the tank moves downwards back into the panels to be heated, thereby creating natural and continuous heating and circulation of the water.
