Our Services

Providing solutions that are both practical as well as financially viable.

Solar Heat has the expertise to assess your requirements. These assessments are vital in the designing of an appropriate energy efficient solution to meet a client’s unique needs.

The data logging can be done at many levels and considers many factors like total daily and time of use consumption, energy tariffs, budget, redundancy and future expansion or scalability. This is ascertained through client consultation, site evaluation as well as regular metering.


Turnkey commercial solutions.

Solar Heat provides photovoltaic systems, heat pumps & hot water systems at a large-scale for commercial use. These systems when used by themselves or in conjunction with one another can drastically reduce daily operational energy costs. This is especially suited for industries with a constant energy need or large hot water needs.


Turnkey domestic solutions.

Heat pump systems can supply all your hot water needs at much less energy cost. A heat pump runs at one-third of the electrical usage of a standard geyser. Swimming pools can be heated with the sun or with a heat pump. Electricity produced from the sun can also reduce your daily energy cost & can be stored in batteries for backup purposes.


Quality equipment.

The sourcing of good quality solar equipment comes from years of industry experience. We know what to look for and have established reliable service partners within the industry. This ensures our products come with the correct backup and support.


In-house installation.

Our teams consist of PIRB certified & qualified plumbers, electricians, trainees as well as general workers. Each team member is competent in their skills, well-equipped to perform installations in a safe & professional manner. All workmanship is backed by a One year Warranty.



Where turn-key solutions are offered, installations carry a one year maintenance service. Unique SLA’s per project are offered specific for each system. Feel free to contact our team to discuss a tailored maintenance solution.


Our expertise in renewable energy technology is drawn from our vast experience & further augmented through ongoing training. Below we have outlined the four core technologies we engage with along with their features & benefits.

System Overview

Solar Heat provides quite a simple hot water system as it has proven to be the most reliable. The solar water heater circulates water due to natural convection. The water rises up from the highly efficient collectors (north-facing) as it begins to heat up. Once it reaches the well-insulated hot water storage tank, the water is kept warm. If the water is used within this timeframe it slowly cools and makes its way back to the bottom of the collectors for reheating. This process is known as “Thermosiphoning” and is one of the most reliable and cost-effective systems available on the market.

Features & Benefits

  • The highly efficient collectors promise all year round comfort and energy independence. During times of prolonged overcast weather, a backup electrical element can be activated to boost water temperatures where necessary.
  • The hot water heating system needs little maintenance for its operation. Due to the natural convection process, no pumps are required. However a pump can be installed if the tank needs to be positioned in the roof or not above the solar collector.
  • The system can also be connected in series to your existing electrical or gas hot water systems where applicable. This is known as a “pre-feed system”.

System Overview

Solar Heat provides a cost-effective solution when it comes to pool heating. Our Alliance Heat Pump pool heaters are arguably the most economical way to extend your swimming season. The Alliance Heat Pump does not use a high current electric element, instead it works by compressing gas within a closed-circuit. This in conjunction with its heat exchanger allows heat to be transferred to your pool water with ease. Due to the nature of its design, the leftover compressed gas gets passed through an evaporator which makes it extremely cold. Thereafter a fan moves warm external air over the gas pipes. The “free” heat is then also absorbed from the air and is again transferred back to your pool water when the cycle repeats.

Features & Benefits

  • The Alliance Heat Pump pool heater only uses as little as 1.5 – 3 kWh of electricity per hour to run its fan and compressor.
  • The gas produced by the unit is eco-friendly R410A gas which ensures no pollution of the atmosphere.
  • With a normal operating range of -7°C to +35°C, the Alliance unit is unaffected by rain, snow or clouds. It also comes with automatic defrosting protection built-in and can operate day and night.

System Overview

As an alternative to a pool heat pump system, Solar Heat provides the advanced Heliocol solar pool heating system. The system easily attaches onto your standard pool filtration system. As the filtration system pumps water from the pool to be filtered, it is then pushed up into the Heliocol solar panels on your roof, where it is substantially heated. The sun-warmed water then flows back directly into your pool, therefore heating your pool. The sun collectors consist of rounded tubes in a one-piece design and comes with mounting sleds to prevent any abrasion when expanding and contracting during general use.

Features & Benefits

  • The open design resists any lift and stays put even in the highest wind conditions.
  • The headers are over moulded over each individual collector tube, producing the strongest possible connection while still eliminating welds and cracks.
  • Heliocol systems are supplied with patented panel clamps which eliminate the use of rubber hoses and metal clamps that require regular rooftop maintenance and replacement.
  • Each and every tube opens into the header, eliminating backpressure which saves on wear & tear of your pool pump below.

System Overview

When you think of under floor heating, the first thing that often comes to mind is an exorbitant electrical bill at the end of the month. With water based under floor heating, these costs can be drastically reduced. Our Viega Fonterra system runs water through pipes in your floors to your desired temperature and can be connected to solar, heat pumps, gas or pellet burners. When opting for one of these systems you are choosing to be more eco-friendly and energy efficient.

Features & Benefits

  • Better savings are achieved due to the ability of the radiant heating system compared to electrical under floor heating.
  • The low operating temperatures & radiant heating automatically lead to better hygiene as the mild tempered surface does not cause noticeable convection.
  • Heat radiation is a characteristic of surface tempering, this means the air is not heated but rather solid objects are.

System Overview

Photovoltaic (PV) power systems convert sunlight directly into electricity. A commercial PV power system enables a business to generate some or all of their daily electrical energy demand on their own roof, exchanging daytime excess power for future energy needs (i.e. night-time usage). The property remains connected to the electric utility at all times, so any power needed above what the solar system can produce is simply drawn from the utility. PV systems can also include battery backup or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capability to operate selected circuits in the business for hours or days during utility outage.

Features & Benefits

  • You use less electricity and can become independent from the grid.
  • The average house roof can only accommodate a system size which produces 20 – 30kWh of electricity a day.
  • For the commercial sector, PV systems provide a favourable internal return rate as the electricity generated is free after the initial payback period.
