It seems these days we are forever playing a game of hopscotch through the loadshedding stages. Whether it is stage 1,2 or 3, the burden is heavy on all of us, and nobody knows when things will return to normal. With these disruptions, we are looking for better ways to keep our businesses and households running. Solar geysers can save you money and eliminate these unforeseen inconveniences. Below is a list of pros and cons of installing a solar geyser in your home.

Pros of Solar Geysers

Up to 90% of your water heating is sourced from the Sun.
Free and renewable energy always – solar geysers will continue to heat your water even on cloudy days.
Solar power reduces a dependence on fossil fuels, allowing us to use renewable energy that would have been wasted otherwise.
The quality of the water doesn’t influence the solar geyser system.
Since you don’t have to rely on electricity to supply the hot water, it will benefit homes with no access to electricity.
Solar heating systems are strong and weather resistant. Tubes can withstand frost and hail.
