Solargain offer a comprehensive range of Solar Hot Water comprising both roof and ground mounted tanks with either an electric or a gas booster, as well as a range of energy saving Heat Pumps. Systems range in size from 170 to a massive 400 litres. In addition Solargain have a range of systems that are guaranteed Frost Protected for our frost prone regions as well as systems for non-frost area..
Solargain Roof Mounted Systems
Solargain have a range of roof mounted systems where the tank and panels are located on a North or West facing roof, all have either electrical or gas boosters. Tank sizes are either 200L or 300L with varying number of panels or panel sizes to suit. All systems can incorporate a Frost Protection Valve and our installers will add a water tempering valve to make sure your water isn't too hot in summer.
Our panels are made of high quality copper which absorb heat better than cheaper aluminium products out there. Our tanks are all Vitreous Enamel (glass lined) with a sacrificial anode to prevent the tank from corroding. Our systems have a 5-year warranty.
Solargain Ground Mounted Systems
Solargain have a range of ground mounted systems also where the panels are located on your roof but the water tank is firmly located on the ground beside your home, insulated copper piping connects the panels to the tank and hot water is circulated via a small electrically driven pump mounted on the tank. Tank sizes range from 250L to a whopping 400L, and panels vary in number to suit your needs.
A ground mounted system is often slightly more expensive than a roof mounted equivalent, however it means that you don't have a large and heavy water tank sitting on your roof. All systems have a 5-year warranty.
Solargain Heat Pumps - iStore
Available in 180L or 270L sizes.
What is a Heat Pump? A Heat Pump is essentially an electrically powered hot water tank that incorporates a refrigeration unit and an inverter motor to heat water using around 65% less power than a standard electrical storage tank. A standard electrical storage tank uses a 2.4kW element, that means it uses 2.4 units per hour to heat your water.
The Heat Pump basically removes heat from the air and converts it to heat within the water tank.
Our iStore Heat Pump unit has a simple to use touch screen LCD control pad whereby you can program the unit to heat water in economy mode when you want. This then allows you to make full use of a Solar Energy system whereby you can use the power generated by your solar panels, so you'd be heating your water 365-days per year for free. Or if you are on a "Synergy Smart Tariff" you can program the Heat Pump to heat during off-peak times, therefore seriously reducing your power bill.
