Electric or gas boosted solar hot water

Solar energy is very reliable but on cloudy or rainy days or at night your water stores can get used up and can't be replenished without a sunlight. The solution to this issue is to heat the water at those times with the help of an electric or gas booster system.

Gas boosted systems work as a continuous flow heater and heats the water when water is being used or if the water in the tank is too cold. Electric boosted systems kicks in to heat the water in the storage tank when the temperature drops below a certain, preset level.

Gas boosted systems are more energy efficient than electric ones as they only heat the water when you need it.
