Are you looking to save on your energy bills, while helping out the environment at the same time? You might be surprised to learn that a solar hot water system can do just that. And if you throw in a heat and chill recovery system, you will be able to save even more.
So how much can you expect to save? Well, it depends on the size of your hot water system, but the savings can be quite significant. On average, a solar hot water system can reduce your home’s energy costs by up to 90%. This means that if your home was using 10kW of electricity per hour for hot water heating, with a solar hot water system in place you would only need 1kW of electricity per hour. That’s a saving of 9kW!
The cost savings don’t stop there either. Depending on where you live and the size of your solar hot water system, you may also be eligible for government rebates or incentives. For example, in Australia, homeowners may be eligible for up to $1,000 in rebates when installing a solar hot water heater. This means that the cost of installing a solar hot water heater could be reduced by up to 50%.
But what about heat and chill recovery systems? A heat and chill recovery system is designed to capture heat from outgoing air from your home and transfer it back into incoming air from outside. This helps keep your home warm in winter and cool during summer without having to use additional energy sources like gas or electric heating systems. In fact, according to studies conducted by Euroheat Australia – Perth engineering & installation experts – installing a heat and chill recovery system could reduce energy consumption by as much as 50%. That’s an additional 5kW!
In addition to helping reduce your energy costs and consumption, installing a solar hot water system and heat/chill recovery systems can also help extend the life of your existing HVAC systems by reducing their workload. This means less wear-and-tear on expensive components like compressors or evaporators which can save you thousands over time.
When it comes to designing and installing these systems it is important that they are done correctly so as not to void any warranties or jeopardize safety regulations. For this reason it is recommended that homeowners work with experienced professionals like Euroheat Australia who have been designing & constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems for 30 years now. Their experienced team of engineers & installers will ensure that all design & installation requirements are met before commissioning any new systems which will give homeowners peace of mind knowing their new heating & cooling systems are safe & reliable for years down the line.
In conclusion, installing a solar hot water system combined with a heat/chill recovery system could significantly reduce both energy costs and consumption while helping extend the life of existing HVAC systems at the same time – all while making sure all safety regulations are met through professional design & installation services such as those provided by Euroheat Australia in Perth WA.
