What is this?

Solar hot water systems take advantage of New Zealand’s supply of sunshine and use solar energy to heat water for household use. A solar hot water system should provide between 50 and 90% of your hot water needs—the amount depends on your local climate and the model of solar hot water heater you install.

Evacuated Tubes have revolutionized the solar industry, now heating water with solar energy is more than a summer option.

They are also attachable to your existing hot water cylinder, saving you the cost of a cylinder upgrade. The tubes are evacuated like double glazed windows stopping heat loss out of the system. The water is always well insulated meaning you can gain solar energy in even below zero degrees outside temperatures.

Our systems work by capturing the solar UV radiation in an absorbent coating on the outside of the inner glass of the solar tube. This heat is then transferred through the glass through aluminum fins to a heat pipe. The hydrocarbon in the heat pipe is under a vacuum and therefore boils at very low temperatures.

The liquid moves the heat up through the heat pipe to the manifold where it is captured in a heat exchange by the water flowing from the Hot Water Cylinder. The heated water is always insulated and protected from the environment. This is similar to how a wetback operates but with a lot more control.


And why you will consider to use them.

Renewable Energy Source

Solar energy can be harnessed in all areas of the world and is available every day.


Approximately 80% of radiation is turned into heat energy. The difference in cost will be paid back as you’ll spend less on heating water.

Reduction In Pollution

Installing a solar water heater would reduce your hot-water carbon footprint by half.

Low Maintenance Costs

You only need to keep them relatively clean, so cleaning them a couple of times per year will do the job.

Technology Development

Technology in the solar power industry is constantly advancing and improvements will intensify in the future.

After that, I have decided to use Kiwi Solar services.
