Did you know that heating your water accounts for nearly 50% of your electricity bill each month? By installing a solar water heater, you can see significant savings on your monthly energy bill straight away. A solar water heater is an affordable alternative to supply hot water in your home every day for the foreseen future.

Many people in South Africa are already taking advantage of solar water heating, why not join the revolution? You have nothing to lose other than high electricity bills. If you are not convinced yet, keep reading for more ways solar water heaters can benefit you.

How Do Solar Water Heaters Work?

Solar water heaters, also known as solar geysers, heat your water using the sun’s energy rather than conventional electricity. As South Africans, we are very fortunate to have an abundance of sunshine throughout the year, making solar power even more efficient. Many newly built homes come complete with solar geysers these days.

How Much Does a Solar Water Heater Cost in South Africa?

Depending on the size (150l to 300l), a solar geyser will set you back anything from R18 500 to R28 000. While it might seem like a large investment, you’ll start to see a return on investment much sooner than anticipated, thanks to Eskom’s ever-increasing tariffs.

Benefits of Solar Water Heaters

  • Significant savings on your monthly energy bill – up to 50%
  • Reliable hot water source throughout the year
  • Better for the environment

 No matter how you look at it, solar water heaters are an excellent investment. Why not use what mother nature offers us for free instead of using traditional electricity with its harmful impact on our planet?
