The newest of D & M Plumbing’s ventures is the installation of solar hot water systems. We have recently purchased a new truck with a crane on it to lift the systems and the solar panels. D & M have several providers of these systems who include Rheem, Solahart and Edwards.
Switching to solar hot water can save you a lot of money. By using electric hot water systems you will use more power than any other household appliance. On average this would be between 35- 40% of total electricity costs which is quite a sum when you consider the average Australian home spends $1500 a year on electricity. The Federal Government offers a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) incentive to homes that convert to solar hot water. The more energy efficient the system, the greater the incentive.
