CS Installers completed a solar water heating installation in Taboerskloof, Cape Town in February for Condor Solar Energy Solutions

The guest house solar water heating system consisted of a 300 litre thermo syphon solar water geyser and a separate 200 litre thermo syphon solar water heating system

The system was designed to accommodate the hot water needs of the 4 guest suites as well as the kitchen, laundry and owner's apartment.

The brief was to ensure hot water for guests at all times while saving electricity costs for the owners.

As Eskom electricity costs have risen, it has become critical that guesthouses look to save water heating costs in the long term in order to remain economically viable.
