Leaking Conergy 300 litre Thermosiphon Solar Hot Water System

Recently, Plumber Near Me attended a call out for a Conergy 300 litre solar hot water system that had suddenly begun to leak profusely.

The customer had called up early in the morning and needed urgent assistance as they could not isolate the water supply and were losing large amounts of water through the broken heating system.

Luckily, Plumber Near Me arrived onsite within 30 minutes of the initial phone call and quickly isolated the water supply to prevent any further water damage.

Unfortunately, the solar hot water system and its panels were beyond repair and so our plumber recommended a full replacement for the Conergy 300 litre hot water system. Although the customer ideally would have liked to replace the unit with another Conergy system, the German company filed for insolvency in 2013.

Installing a Rheem Replacement

After assessing our client’s daily water requirements we decided to install a Rheem Hiline 52S300 solar hot water system due to its 300 litre tank capacity, making it ideal made it the ideal unit for this family of four. The unit also had similar dimensions to the existing Conergy system and so minimal pipe alterations needed to be made.

If you are looking to install a solar hot water system, or perhaps just replacing your existing unit with a gas or electric model, Plumber Near Me is available to assist you.

The new installation required two plumbers and a small crane to fit the hot water system and panels to the roof and was completed on the same day as the initial assessment.

This particular Rheem Solar model has many advantageous features including its back up electric booster system which ensures you have a continuous supply of hot water, even on overcast days.

The Benefits of a New Solar Hot Water System

Installing a new solar hot water system in your home can offer several advantages over traditional water heating methods. Here are some key benefits to consider:

  • Energy savings: Solar hot water systems use the sun’s free and renewable energy to heat water, reducing your reliance on electricity or gas. By harnessing solar power, you can significantly lower your energy bills and save money in the long run.
  • Environmentally friendly: Solar hot water systems are an eco-friendly choice as they produce clean energy and reduce carbon emissions. By using the sun’s energy, you contribute to a greener future and help combat climate change.
  • Long-term cost-effectiveness: Although the upfront cost of installing a solar hot water system may be higher than a conventional system, it offers excellent long-term cost-effectiveness. The energy savings you gain over the system’s lifespan can offset the initial investment, leading to substantial financial benefits.
  • Durability and low maintenance: Solar hot water systems are designed to be durable and require minimal maintenance. With proper installation and regular checks, these systems can last for many years, providing you with reliable hot water without frequent repairs or replacements.
  • Government incentives: Many governments and local authorities offer incentives, such as tax credits and rebates, to encourage the adoption of renewable energy systems. Installing a new solar hot water system may make you eligible for these incentives, further reducing the overall cost.
  • Increased property value: A solar hot water system can enhance the value of your property. As eco-friendly features become more desirable to buyers, having a solar-powered system in place can attract potential buyers and give you an edge in the real estate market.

By considering these benefits, you can determine if a new solar hot water system is the right choice for your home, allowing you to enjoy cost savings, environmental advantages and a reliable source of hot water for years to come.
