How Businesses Can Benefit from Solar Water Heating

By May 12, 2019 June 6th, 2019 No Comments

Contrary to popular belief, solar geysers aren’t just for the residential market. Industrial and commercial organisations can greatly benefit from it as well. These industries include hospitals, restaurants, breweries, hotels, laundromats, manufacturing plants and more.

A solar water heating system works by capturing the rays of the sun and using it to heat water for your business. Not only does it provide you with a reliable hot water source, but it also lowers your monthly electricity bill and helps your business be more eco-friendly.

A solar geyser requires little to no maintenance and is guaranteed to last 10 to 25 years. Many factors can decrease the longevity of your solar water heater system like poor quality or an amateur installation. Which is why it’s vital to use professionals like Nupower to manage your solar project.

Do Solar Water Heaters Work in the Winter?

A valid question since we’re approaching winter very fast and the answer is a definite YES! Solar water heaters work as long as the sun is shining. It doesn’t matter how hot it is outside! And since Johannesburg receives more than 3 000 hours of sunshine each year, investing in a solar water heater for your business is an excellent idea.

What Size Water Heater Do I Need?

Nupower offers various systems that come in 230V or 12V configurations. Our geysers range from 150 litres to 400 litres. A trained professional will be able to determine the best solution for your business needs.

To conclude:

Bulk hot water systems for hospitals, hotels, and other large buildings typically need large amounts of power. When you switch to a solar water heating system, the demand for electricity will be reduced significantly resulting in substantial savings.
