The empty roof space on your home can be used as an asset to increase the value of your property. Studies have shown that homeowners and renters will pay more for a home with solar and that number increases again with the addition of a solar battery. Research also indicates that the more panels that are installed, the higher the value increases.
Solar hotwater systems require heat collection panels which take up valuable roof space limiting the size of any potential PV (photovoltaic) solar panels. Heat pump hot water systems don’t require any roof space giving you more room for PV solar panels, utilising available roof space for providing energy to the whole of your home, not just your hot water.
