Solar Service Before Winter

March 10, 2022

Winter is approaching fast, meaning an increase to heating usage putting strain on your solar heating system. Thousands of Aucklanders rely on solar heating to heat their water, but few keep theirs maintained.

Unlike a hot water cylinder, which is easy to replace if broken, solar heating is not. As solar heating systems are exactly that, a system, they can be hard to repair or replace. There are many points of failure, all of which must be tested.

Running out of hot water is frustrating, but at least in summer a cold shower can be tolerated. What happens if your solar heating system breaks in the winter? That’s why we are pushing for homeowners to service their solar heating system now.
