Solar hot water system

The Siddons All-In-One, it’s the perfect solution for your domestic hot water requirements!

Siddons All-In-One heat pump water heater extracts solar heat from the air and transforms it into steaming hot water, whether the air temperature is as low as minus 5°C or as high as 45°C.

And because the All-In-One is energy-efficient, it’s much cheaper to operate than electric element or gas bottle water heaters.

For a family of two adults and two kids, you’ll typically save up to 75% of your hot water costs or around $600 per year if you switch from electric element or gas bottle water heating to the Siddons All-In-One, savings that will increase as the cost of electricity increases.

The Siddons All-In-One is available in two convenient tank sizes, depending on how much hot water you use. Generally, for a two to three bedroom home not using a bathtub, choose the 270 litre model. For a three bedroom home using a bathtub, or four to five bedroom home, choose the 340 litre model.

The Siddons All-In-One has a sleek design that complements both modern and traditional homes, with two choices of finish – powder coated and stainless steel. We recommend the stainless steel finish for seaside locations.

The All-In-One’s water storage tank is made from high quality, marine grade (316) stainless steel.

This information, together with model numbers, is summarised in the following table:

The All-In-One is easy to install. There are no refrigeration connections to be made – just water fittings and an electrical plug. Any plumber can do it.

The All-In-One’s digital controller will continually monitor performance and let you know if anything is not optimal. It also lets you to choose the time of day the unit runs to take advantage of cheaper off-peak rates or warmer air in the afternoon. Note that for every 10 degree rise in air temperature you will gain 20% more efficiency from the All-In-One. The digital controller also allows you to adjust your preferred hot water temperature.

Siddons All-In-One. Solar savings made easy!

Siddons Bolt-On

The easiest and most cost effective way to make solar savings!

The BOLT-ON is a new and brilliantly designed heat pump that works with any storage tank, new or existing, night or day.Why pay for a new storage tank if your current tank still has life in it, even though its heater may not work or is too expensive to run?Siddons introduced the heat pump to Australia more than 30 years ago and has been improving this efficient solar technology ever since. It takes solar heat from the air rather than direct radiation from the sun, so it can work in all weather conditions, from minus 5°C to 45°C, night or day. And it doesn’t take up your roof space; you can use that for PV electricity-g

enerating panels instead.

And because the BOLT-ON is energy-efficient, it’s much cheaper to operate than electric element or gas bottle water heaters. For a family of two adults and two kids, you can save up to 75% of your hot water costs or around $600 per year, savings that will increase as the cost of electricity and gas increases.

According to not-for-profit think-tank Beyond Zero Emissions, replacing an electric element water heater with a Siddons BOLT-ON reduces your CO2 emission by around 3 tonnes per year (based on rebate Zone 4). Replacing two electric element water heaters with BOLT-ONs has the same impact on the environment as taking a car off the road.

The BOLT-ON does not need an electric element, gas burner or condenser coil from the storage tank to help it heat, so you can buy it on its own and bolt it onto your existing storage tank.

Applications include:

  • Upgrading your existing electric element or gas bottle water heater to solar heat pump and save around $600 per year
  • Attaching the BOLT-ON to your existing water heater that may no longer be working to avoid having to pay for a new storage tank
  • Including the BOLT-ON with a new hot water storage tank, which will earn you rebates to help cover the extra cost

It is also much smaller in size than a typical integrated unit and therefore much easy to transport. It will even fit in the back of a ute or a station wagon.

The BOLT-ON was designed for easy installation. Any plumber can do it. And the BOLT-ON is just as easy to uninstall. This means that if you rent you can even take it with you when you move!

The BOLT-ON has a sophisticated digital controller that enables you to choose the time of day the unit runs, making it easy for you to take advantage of cheaper off-peak rates, or run it in the afternoon at the warmest time of the day. You can also set your preferred water temperature.

The BOLT-ON’s digital controller and pressure gauge (previously only found on commercial heat pumps) together make it easy to monitor the performance of the BOLT-ON. The controller will display the water temperature in your tank and the temperature of the air,  and will continually check performance against a number of factory set parameters, and let you know if service is required, just like a modern car.

At just 48 dBa, the BOLT-ON is very quiet and will not bother neighbors in close proximity. We are confident you will be pleasantly surprised at how quietly this heat pump runs.

And the BOLT-ON is made from quality components including German Grundfos water circulating pump and Japanese Toshiba compressor.

SIDDONS BOLT ON TANK PACKAGES

Siddons BOLT-ON has been designed by Siddons to connect to and work with any water storage tank, whether old or new, providing the tank itself is sound.

As such, many customers choose to purchase a Siddons BOLT-ON to upgrade their existing hot water system, hence avoiding the cost of purchasing a new storage tank.

However, it may be best for you to purchase a new storage tank with the Siddons BOLT-ON heat pump.

When you do purchase a storage tank together with the Siddons BOLT-ON, you may be eligible to receive Government rebates to help offset the cost.

For a new Siddons BOLT-ON heat pump with new hot water storage tank, we can supply a range of vitreous enamel and stainless steel storage tanks.

Note that we recommend use of vitreous enamel tanks if you live in Western Australia, South Australia, Northern Territory and regional areas of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria in circumstances where water quality is mineralised, chlorinated and/ or comes from rivers, dams, bores or other ground-sourced aquifers.
