Apricus Solar Hot Water Units

Enjoy Sustainable Savings

You can save money and reduce your household’s impact on the environment by installing an ultra efficient, evacuated tube solar hot water system from Apricus.

Apricus is Latin for ‘delighting in sunshine’ and our solar evacuated tube collectors, designed for even the toughest Australian conditions, do exactly that. They passively track the sun for more hours of the day to provide greater solar collection. The evacuated tube collectors are highly efficient lightweight and low maintenance. They can withstand hail and frost and the mounting frames are cyclone rated.

Apricus solar hot water systems for homes are available in a range of sizes and gas, LPG natural gas boosted or electric boosting solutions.   A plumber will recommend the best system for your home.

Top 10 reasons to choose an Apricus Solar Hot Water System

 

  1. Passive Sun Tracking
    The round tube design of the Apricus collectors passively tracks the sun to provide more solar collection for more hours of the day.
  2. Cyclone Rated
    Our mounting frames are designed in Australia and are rated to withstand cyclonic winds.
  3. Cold Weather High Performance
    Apricus evacuated tubes have a vacuum between two glass layers working like a thermos flask allowing up to 95% of the solar energy to be retained leading to higher performances in colder climates.
  4. Built-in Frost Protection
    All Apricus solar hot water systems have built-in frost profection (-15 0 C) without glycol so there is less maintenance.
  5. Superior Hail Resistance
    Our tubes have been independently tested and shown to withstand impact from a 25mm ice ball at 90km/hr.
  6. Light-Weight, Durable Design
    A 30 tube collector weighs approximately 110kg spread over a 2.2m x 2.0m roof space so there is no inconvenience using cranes to install. Reinforcing the roof structure is not necessary compared to other solar hot water systems than can weight up to 500kg on a roof.
  7. Designed in Australia to meet Australian conditions
    Apricus is an Australian owned and operated company. All systems are designed to meet even the toughest Australian conditions and built to last.
  8. Up to 15 Year Warranty*
    We provide a 15 year collector warranty and 10 year warranty on solar hot water tanks. *See Warranty for details.

  10. National Support Network
