Frequently Asked Questions
How can I save up to $500 every year on my water heating bills and help reduce my greenhouse gas emissions?
Using the sun’s energy to heat water can reduce an average household’s hot water bills by between 60% to 80% – a saving of around $300 to $500 each year.
Not only will a solar water heater save you money on your water heating bills, it represents a significant reduction of fossil fuel energy use.
Hot water heaters typically make up 35% to 50% of a household energy bill.
How does the Apricus Solar Hot Water system work?
The sun’s energy is absorbed by the tubes and is then transferred to your water via innovative heat pipes located inside each tube.
The heat pipes transfer the heat into a heat transfer manifold located on your roof.
Water is then pumped through this manifold absorbing the heat and stored in a water storage tank located below.
The result is an incredibly efficient system to harness the heat of the sun even in extremely cold areas.
What’s the best position for my system?
Due to the significantly better efficiency of the Apricus evacuated
tube collector, you can locate your system on a roof area facing NE or NW (or even on a West or East-facing roof with minimal reductions in efficiency).
The lightweight design of the Apricus Solar Collector means it can also be mounted on walls or even on a pole in a sunny area of your property.
What if it is not sunny? Will I still have hot water?
Apricus Solar Hot Water systems include either electric or gas boosting, ensuring hot water even during rainy weather.
What size of system will I need?
The size of the system will depend on your location and hot water usage patterns.
With the option of 10, 20, 22 and 30 tube collectors with either electric or gas boosting, there is a model to suit your needs.
How much do they cost?
There are a number of factors regarding the cost of an Apricus Solar Hot Water system, including:
• Type of tank you purchase/select
• Size of system you select
• If you require a gas or electric boosted system
