Solar Questions & Answers
How will a SolarElite panel look on my home?
The SolarElite system is designed so only the solar panel is installed on the roof. The SolarElite’s slim streamlined solar panel will look great and we can match the colour of the panel frame to the colour of your roof.
Will I need a new hot water cylinder?
In a home that uses electricity to heat hot water, we can generally use the existing cylinder. In homes that use gas to heat hot water, a new cylinder may be required. With new homes we can supply a system that includes a hot water cylinder.
How does the SolarElite heat the hot water?
The solar systems main component is a collector panel, which captures energy from the sun. Water passes through this collector panel and is heated. This water is then pumped to your hot water cylinder.
What happens if there is not enough sun?
On days when there isn’t sufficient sunlight to heat the water to the required
temperature, ‘booster’ heating is utilised – typically electricity, gas or a wetback.
What does the Solastat Controller do?
The Solastat Controller is like a mini computer that runs the entire SolarElite system. The controller ensures that you always have hot water, no matter what the weather outside is like. First it controls the pump that sends water through to the solar panel and then into the hot water cylinder. It also measures the water temperature in the cylinder and triggers the booster heating whenever the water temperature drops below the pre-set minimum.
Will solar hot water heating work for me?
Our SolarElite system can be installed anywhere – from family homes to dairy farms to hospitals and large commercial operations.
