Solar Water Heater Maintenance Dubai | Solar Water Heater Dubai
There is nothing quite like the invigorating effects of a long shower or the relaxing feeling of whiling away an afternoon in a piping hot bath. Unfortunately, when the power bill finally arrives, these little luxuries can end up costing you more than you’d bargained for!
One of the biggest aspects of power consumption for any residential home is the cost of heating hot water. Usually, the costs associated with hot water heating make up at least a third of the average home’s power bill. Thankfully, there are many energy saving methods that the average family can use to cut their hot water costs. If you don’t want to be caught out over your energy usage, the practical and easy to follow tips on this page will help you save money, power and help the environment.
Check Your Insulation
Making sure your hot water cylinder is well insulated will help the unit retain its warmth and use power more efficiently. Many older model hot water heaters are not sufficiently insulated, so if your system is more than ten years old you may need to invest in some insulation! It is also worthwhile to insulate the hot water pipe that connects to your cylinder. If you feel that these kind of plumbing maintenance services are beyond your DIY skills, the best bet is to speak with a qualified plumber.
Regulate Your Usage
A simple method of keeping your hot water costs low is to regulate both the temperature of your water and the time you spend using it. An electric or gas hot water heater cylinder should be kept at 60°C and flow from the tap at a maximum of 55°C to prevent scalding. Likewise, by spending less time in the shower or opting for short showers over baths, you can dramatically decrease your yearly hot water bills. Some shower heads also allow you to add flow restrictions to help save water. Cutting your average showing time by just three minutes will make a huge difference!
Upgrade Your System
Over the past decade, there have been huge advances in hot water heating technology. Newer systems use less power and utilise the power the do use in a more efficient way. Also, by installing an eco-friendly and cost effective solar water heater you can improve your bank balance and help out Mother Nature. While the initial price may prove an obstacle for some budget conscious home-owners, it is worth bearing in mind that the long term savings will more than outweigh the start-up costs.
Other energy efficient options such as heat pumps and gas continuous flows which can help you save money on power.

With a cheap initial installation cost, electric heaters provide great water pressure and can meet the needs of even the largest family with ease.

With low running costs and an ability to double as an underfloor central heating system, heat pumps are an attractive choice for many home-owners. It is worth bearing in mind that the installation costs can be higher than for other systems and you may need to check with the local council before installing a heat pump system.

Hydronic In-Floor/WallIf you are extensively renovating or building a new home, this is your best option.

The system involves a combined heating unit that we can place anywhere from a cupboard to the garage, boiler room, service closet or outside, depending on the size and shape of the particular unit.
The great thing about the hydronic system is that is can be used as a cooling and potable hot water duel system, as well. In addition, if you want to save money on hot water generation, we can install it as a solar system combination.
Ducted Central Warm Air
Ducted systems, which are one type of Central Air, work by pushing a convection flow of warm or hot air around the home via insulated ducts in the walls. The air exit through vents that are placed around the home, usually high up on a wall or on the ground.
This type of system is good for discreet heating around your house that is easy to control, quiet, energy-efficient and will undoubtedly increase the value of your home. It can be run from natural gas or LPG and is a popular choice for villas and bungalows. You need floor space or ceiling space.

However, as we all know, gas can be a dangerous substance and needs to be treated with respect and care. Gas appliances need to be regularly checked and serviced to ensure that they are working properly, legally, safely, and efficiently. In most buildings, the main gas appliance is the gas hot water heating unit.

PRE-WIRING FOR SOLAR POWER
Ideally, solar wiring should aim to be completed when an electrician is installing all the other wiring jobs around the home. Pre-wiring a house for solar power is when an electrician runs a solar cable from a roof cavity to a location in the garage that is suitable for a wall mounted inverter. This saves solar installers time, which means money saved on labour costs and ensures all wires are conduit and well hidden within the cavity of the walls.
Considering installing solar power but not ready to commit yet? Pre-wiring the house for solar power allows for easy solar installations anytime in the future, and only costs a couple of hundred dollars.
Solar panel placements, angles and aesthetics should be considered before finalising house drawings.
For maximum solar gain, install solar panels on north facing roofs, especially if planning to install batteries. However, should more power planned to be consumed during morning hours, solar panels on an south facing roofs could be the better option. Some experts say ‘west is best’, which is true if more power is consumed in the afternoon. If installing solar panels on an east/ west facing roof, versus a north facing roof, then 15% of the potential power generation could be lost, but you could gain greater solar self-consumption.
Building a home with a flat roof? Tilt the solar panels to a minimum of 10 degrees - for maximum solar generation tilt to 25-30 degrees. For aesthetic purposes some customers choose to tilt the solar panels to a smaller angle. Tilting solar panels is an extra cost, which is worth remembering. Decent amount of spacing between each row of solar panels is needed to avoid shading.
Avoid objects that cause shading on the roof such as aerials, satellite dishes, chimneys or flues. Shading can cause the power output to decrease significantly.
Once the roof has been designed request 3 free quotes via My Solar Quotes online platform, and request a solar panel layout from our solar design experts.
FIGURING OUT A DRAFT LAYOUT FOR THE SOLAR PANELS ON YOUR ROOF?
The size of solar panels vary based on brand and model. Generally, they are 1650 x 990 x 35 mm for a 270 watt panel - therefore the area size is 1.63m2. Allow a 15mm gap between each solar panel. Solar panels should be at least 200mm away from the roofs edge. There are many considerations for a solar array design, so make sure the final designs are approved by a solar expert.
WHAT ROOFING MATERIAL WORKS WITH SOLAR PANELS?
Corrugated iron/metal roofs are currently the easiest roofing material to install solar panels on. Other roofing materials that are solar friendly include; metal tile, asphalt shingle, bitumen, concrete tile, membrane roofs and more. It is a struggle to find any installation company that is willing to install on a terracotta tile roof, due to the high chance of the tiles breaking.
SOLAR POWER - SHOULD I ASK ARCHITECT OR HOME BUILDING COMPANY?
Some architects may have knowledge about eco homes and energy efficient designs, and in that case they can point customers in the right direction. Home building companies generally only want to sell products that they can clip the ticket on, and will potentially steer customers away from anything they don’t sell. Some home building companies that promote eco-friendly homes will have selected solar vendors that they will refer you to.
