A new topic in most general conversations, are no longer the latest fashions or political scandals, but rather giving advice on how to implement some of these basic requirements for your household.

Solar geyser installation is the new buzz word on everybody’s lips. But how effective and cost effective is it really? To most it sounds impossible from a affordability point of view.

Not everyone is in the privileged position to manage the initial layout for a proper solar geyser installation. Also consider that weather patterns in the winter, or on very cloudy and rainy days, could require an electricity boost to ensure that hot water is available right throughout the winter.
Even in comparison with having a timer on your geyser, you will still find that the solar panel option has a bigger cost saving in the long run, with the long hot summers we experience here in Brackenfell.
