Tasol solar specialises in solar water heating.  Our solar water heating technology has been in SA for a long time already.  Solar water heating comes in two main configurations:  Direct solar water heating systems and indirect solar water heating systems.

Direct solar water heating is where the water is heated directly in the collector.  Our direct solar water heating system works with evacuated tube solar geyser technology.  This means that there is no risk involved with the possibility of frost.

Indirect solar water heating is where the water is heated indirectly by means of anti-freeze being heated by the sun, and indirectly transfer the heat to the water inside the indirect solar water heating.

Solar water heating is definitely an economical effective way to reduce your electricity consumption.  Solar water heating is quickly becoming more popular and common in South Africa.

Solar water heating in Pretoria is very effective, since we have ample sun.  Solar water heating in Pretoria should be configured in a frost resistant set-up, since Pretoria does get temperatures below 4°C.  A direct frost resistant solar water heating system is what you should consider.  The frost resistant solar water heating system is also known as an evacuated tube solar water heating system.

Why use an evacuated tube solar water heating system?

·         This solar water heating system works on radiation from the sun, resulting in better solar water heating effectivity even on cloudy days

·         This solar water heating system is frost resistant

·         This solar water heating system can be fitted directly onto an existing electrical geyser

o   Your existing geyser can be converted to a solar water heater at a very affordable cost

·         The effectivity of the solar water heating system can be adjusted

·         This solar water heating system has minimal maintenance

·         There are many more reasons to use this solar water heating system, but these are the main advantages of the evacuated tube solar water heating system as opposed to the indirect flat panel system
