Hot Water Systems for Your Home
Reducing the Costs of Hot Water
Heating hot water for the average Australian household can account for up to 30% of total annual electricity costs.
Therefore, it makes good sense to look to renewable energy as a way to reduce the costs involved in the supply of hot water, and to move towards achieving energy independence.
Two ways to assist you to achieve this goal are by heating your hot water by alternative methods, such as air-to-energy heating and solar heating.
Are These Methods of Heating Water Cost Effective?
Both methods of heating are significantly more cost-effective than conventional gas or electric hot water systems.
Air-to-energy heating and solar heating both attract a Government rebate to assist with your initial cost outlay.

What is the Payback Period?
The payback period will vary depending on the size of the unit purchased, how it is used within the household and, in the case of air-to-energy, whether you have an existing solar system and whether you programme the unit to heat during the peak solar producing hours of the day.
The payback period, in some cases, can be as low as 3 years.
Do These Options Help the Planet?
Air-to-energy technology takes the energy that exists in the air and uses that to produce hot water, whilst solar hot water is generated from the sun’s rays.
Both options therefore have benefits and, in fact, the air-to-energy option has shown to be able to reduce carbon emissions by 4 tonnes per annum and also have a 400% green energy conversion by being able to store 4kW of heat energy for every 1kW of power consumed.
How do I find out more about these water heating options?
We are pleased to be able to offer the following solutions for both air-to-energy (iStore) and Solar (iHeat).
