Solar Geysers And Its Benefits

March 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 115

South Africa is definitely a country that is rich in daily sunlight and solar heat pumps will work at their best with weather conditions such as is available here. People in South Africa and especially in Cape Town have come to the realization that it makes more sense to mount solar geysers as an alternative of electric powered geysers.

All through the year there is an abundance of sunlight in Cape Town and solar geysers get their energy from the sun's rays in order to generate electricity. Solar geysers take the pressure off utilizing electricity, which is created by coal burning plants, so it cuts down on greenhouse gas by-products.

Another great benefit of installing a solar geyser is that once installed, it cuts your electricity costs considerably and as we all know, the electric geyser is responsible for more than 50% of that bill. There wont be further expenses once the expense of the solar geyser is actually paid for.

Eskom, Cape Town's consumer electrical utility company, is giving rebates to buyers. Their most current rebate approach offers a rebate of 3,281 Rand for getting a solar geyser with 80% native content along with a 50-99 liter total capacity. Eskom has put into practice distinct restrictions on electricity usage, solar geysers will allow you to limit your usage so that you stay inside of those limits and aren't slapped with penalties for exceeding them. A solar heater will also protect your wallet from any future price increases in electrical power.

There are many features to having a solar water pump installed in your home, such as Cost; if you are installing it yourself then the materials can be purchased from your local hardware store and won't cost much at all. Doing it yourself eliminates installation costs and expensive labor costs.

You can save more than a third of your electric bills as your geyser is the most expensive electrical consumer in your house. You will definitely reduce your dependence on the national grid as more than 50% of your electrical consumption will decrease. Should any power outages occur, you won't be as badly affected as before.

Solar heating works on the principle of thermal mass. Thermal mass is any material which will absorb and store warmth. With regard to solar heating this often refers to the solar panels that you would install on your roof, or have installed on your roof to transfer heat to your geyser. Any type of material has some kind of thermal mass, but generally it is rather small scale.

During the times when the sun is out and about your solar heating system will absorb the heat of the sun's rays and heat your geyser for you. This means that you do not need to use electricity to heat water for your home anymore.

Solar power is definitely the way to go and will make life a lot more easier and cost effective.
