Sun King FAQs
How much will a Solahart water heater save me?
This will vary depending on which part of Hawaii you live in, your current hot water system and hot water usage patterns, and the model of Solahart you install and of course your fuel tariff. For example, by installing a Solahart 302Kf Free Heat, one of our most efficient models, you can cut your water heating energy consumption by up to 90%* in the hotter parts (Zone 2) of the country, up to 75%* in the temperate parts (Zones 1 & 3) and up to 60%* in the cooler parts (zone 4).
What are the environmental benefits of a Solahart water heater?
Water heating accounts for almost 30% of the average household’s energy usage. Getting your hot water free from the sun not only saves energy, it also saves the greenhouse gas emissions that would have been produced in the generation of that energy. By replacing an electric storage water heater with a Solahart you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 3.5 tons a year depending on the system and your situation. That's the equivalent of taking a small car off the road. In fact solar water heaters are so good for the environment that Renewable Energy Certificates and some government incentives exist to make it easier to get into solar hot water.
What are Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)?
Each REC represents the equivalent of one megawatt hour of electricity generation from an accredited renewable energy source. For solar and heat pump water heaters each REC represents the displacement by solar energy of one megawatt hour of electricity generation.
The installation of a solar or heat pump water heater in your property may be eligible for the creation of REC’s. The financial benefit from assigning your right to create REC's for your solar or heat pump water heater installation can be used to reduce the purchase price of your new Solahart.
The number of REC's which may be created varies with the model of solar or heat pump water heater and the region in which the unit is installed. The value of a REC is not fixed and varies from 'time to time'.
How long does it take to pay for itself?
Financial payback will vary depending on your circumstances, but with the available incentives plus the ongoing energy savings you can begin to recoup your additional investment straight away when you remain connected to the same fuel tariff.
After you recover your initial investment, the savings are yours to spend on yourself and your family, year after year.
Which Solahart is right for us?
The best Solahart unit for your needs will depend on the following key factors:
- The amount of available sun
- Is the area prone to frost?
- The water quality in your area
- How many people in the home & their typical hot water usage
To choose the best water heater for your family, call your local Solahart expert who will help you pick the right unit for your current and future circumstances.
