Hot Water Solutions

Using a solar hot water system to heat your hot water is both a cost effective and efficient solution. SunMaxx Solar manufactures the leading solar thermal collectors, storage tanks and control systems sold worldwide since 2006. 

What do you need to know to get started?  

  • Where do you live?
  • What are you trying to do with your hot water system? Heat your hot water, building heating, or pool heating?
  • Do you want your solar panels on the roof or ground?

These are all the basic questions you need to answer in order to get started with a solar hot water system. Since 2006, we’ve had the goal of developing simple and reliable solar thermal systems for our customers. Let us help  you with your home solar project. Whether you’re a DIY customer or looking for a professional installation partner, you’ve come to the right place.


Solar Thermal
System Types


Solar Hot Water Heating

Domestic Hot Water

What are domestic hot water systems? Hot water heating for normal everyday household use. These are the basic solar hot water kits and most efficient in terms of cost effectiveness. Solar hot water kits normally act as a “pre-heating” solution to your current hot water system.

Solar Thermal Space Heating

Combination Solar Systems

What do they do? “Combi” systems include a solar thermal heating system designed for building heating. Normally our space heating systems also integrate domestic hot water heating as well.
