Using the sun to heat your water is the most environmentally friendly option there is. It is also a great way to cut down the largest component of your energy bill—generating hot water.
With the Rinnai Sunmaster™ Gas Boosted Solar System you can save up to 60% of your energy bill compared to a standard gas water heating system for a medium sized North Island home of 4-5 people.
A typical solar system will provide 30-60% of domestic hot water requirements from the sun under average climatic conditions in New Zealand.
Boosting your solar system
In NZ your solar system will need boosting unless you are willing to run out of hot water. A gas boosted system is best because it only works when you need hot water that your solar system can't supply.
How a gas boosted system works
- 1 The sun's rays heat water in the solar panels for free.
- 2 Hot water from the panels is stored in the tank.
- 3 If the water is too cold, the gas Rinnai Infinity booster heats the water on demand as it travels from the tank to your tap.
