Replace your old hot water system and reduce your energy costs by up to 80%

If you have a gas or electric storage tank water, you pay dearly for the privilege of having hot water when you need it. Typically, in fact, electric water heaters consume more electricity in your home than anything except your heating and cooling system. And maybe your pool pump. If you’re at the point where you’ve had it up to “here” with energy bills, Kalamunda Plumbing can demonstrate how a new solar water heater can reduce your hot-water energy costs by up to 80%! The cornerstone of your system will be roof-mounted solar collectors. They’re job is to harness the power of the sun to heat the water contained in your ground- or roof-mounted storage tank.

Kalamunda Plumbing is an authorised distributor of top quality Envirosun solar water heaters

While a solar water heater can provide up to 80% of your family’s hot water needs, what about the rest of the time? Don’t worry, we have that covered, too, with you your choice of a gas or electric booster for those cloudy days when the sun just won’t cooperate.

Envirosun TS System

Passive thermosiphon systems

The Envirosun ‘TS Range’ of thermosiphon or passive solar hot water systems offers maximum efficiency and a cost-effective solution for most applications.

Thermosiphon systems feature the traditional ‘tank-on-the-roof’ configuration – an arrangement that was first deployed and commercially marketed around 1909.

The operating principle of these early systems is no different to that upon which a modern-day Envirosun system relies: water in a flat plate solar collector is heated by the sun and the water rises into an insulated storage tank located above the collector … but that’s about all that our modern systems share with their technological predecessors.

Today’s Envirosun TS systems incorporate a top quality European made 444 Stainless Steel cylinder and a full copper solar collector manifold inside an insulated and fully sealed aluminum tray that comes with an industry leading 7 year warranty on both tank and solar panels.

The advantage of the Stainless steel tank is not only that it is long lasting, but the cylinder is much lighter in weight when compared to the standard mild steel vitreous enamel lined solar tank offered by other brands, which your roof will certainly appreciate. Also it does not have the need for a sacrificial anode as the others do, thereby saving you dollars when scheduling 5 year solar services.

A silver bullet

Superiority of Type 444 ferritic stainless steel

Envirosun pioneered the use of Type 444 ferritic stainless steel in the construction of hot water system pressure vessels.

Compared with traditional austenitic stainless steel (such as less effective Type 316L and 304L adopted by other Australian water heater manufacturers) ferritic stainless steels offer major performance advantages.

In particular, Type 444 out-lasts Type 316L when it comes to resisting localised chloride stress corrosion cracking or pitting attack at elevated water temperatures. Generally, Type 444 ferritic stainless steel is a highly durable and trouble-free material that offers significant life-cycle cost advantages over traditional austenitic grade stainless steel.

Envirosun AS Systems

Active pumped system

The Envirosun ‘AS Range’ of pumped or active solar hot water systems offers greater flexibility, improved aesthetics and higher capacity.

Active systems only require the solar collectors to be installed on the roof with the storage tank situated at ground level or any other convenient and out-of-the-way location. The operating principle of these systems is relatively simple – when the solar collectors are able to add heat into the storage tank, a small pump is switched on to circulate hot-water from the collectors and replace it with cool water from the tank.

Once the tank is full of hot-water, the pump is switched off, but ready for the next cycle.

While pumped systems have been around for many years, modern electronics and materials have brought improvements in both function and reliability. Today’s Envirosun AS systems adopt many of these technological advances and blend them with their collector technology, to create a range of high-performance active solar hot water systems.

Envirosun AS Split solar hot water heaters come in 3 different storage tank sizes, 250, 315 and 400 litre. The Envirosun AS Solar variety also have the electrical back up element option as well as using Natural (mains) or LPG (bottled) gas boosted.
