Solar Rosa References

A review from one of our Solar Rosa Home customers

February 2013

Q: What spurred you on to go for a solar thermal system in the first place?
A: You have to do it for the environment. I had been looking into it for a while and wanted a sustainable house with a good quality system. This particular system seemed to be the best, it provides hot water and underfloor heating minimizes a large portion of your monthly power bill.

Q: What do you think of the underfloor heating?
A: I would recommend the Jaraflex underfloor heating with good insulation. This underfloor piping sits close to the surface so is much more efficient.

Q: Is there any maintenance required with the system?
A: Maintenance is non-existent; you just need to learn a few aspects of how to tune the system to your own personal requirements.

I am very pleased I chose the system. This solar thermal closed loop system supplied by Solar Rosa Home is the best by a long way!

Cutting-edge solar-heating system installed in Rangihaeata house

21. Jan 2010 The G.B. Weekly (Golden Bay)

Only the second unit of what is currently the most high-tech and quite possibly the most efficient home solar-heating system yet imported into this country has been installed in a new Rangihaeata Road home. Owner Adriana Morani says she went for the German-engineered Solar Rosa Home hot water and underfloor heating system, even though it came with a $20,000 price tag, because it would repay long-term dividends.

“Basically, I'll never have to worry about where the hot water is coming from ever again. Even a few days of complete cloud will hardly affect it, that's how efficient it is,” she says.
Six ultra-sleek solar panels on her roof now heat her 800-litre, insulated steel hot-water cylinder downstairs, which works in conjunction with conducted underfloor heating throughout the 130-square-metre house. read more »
