Solahart Solar Hot Water Systems: The Original Australian Solar Hot Water Systems
Solahart is a leading manufacturer of solar hot water systems in Australia, providing solar water heating to over a million households around the world.
Solahart’s solar hot water history goes back to 1953
Solahart’s beginnings date back to 1901 in Perth, when two entrepreneurs formed SW Hart and Co Plumbers and
Ironworks to manufacture tanks, troughs and sinks for the pioneering community. In 1953 the company developed a method to harness the sun’s natural energy as a way to heat water, long before human induced global warming was even heard of. Thus Solahart was born and the company began manufacturing solar water heaters to suit the West Australian climate.
By the mid 60’s Solahart started developing models to suit all Australian climates and was providing solar hot water to households and businesses all around the country through our network of dealersIn 1978 the Solahart 300L/80GE was introduced, receiving wide international recognition leading to the development of an international dealer network to provide Solahart energy saving water heaters to the world. Today Solahart has manufactured over a million solar hot water systems installed in over 80 countries on every continent around the world, and has over 100 Dealers around Australia.
Solahart produces a wide range of models
Today, customers can choose from 3 styles of Solahart solar hot water systems…
Thermosiphon. This is the ‘traditional’ style solar hot water system. The sun’s heat is absorbed by the dark panels, and water or a transfer liquid carries the heat upwards to the storage tank.
With this system design, no pumps are required. The design is as simple as it can be.
Split system. Many customers do not prefer the aesthetics of a large tank visible on their roof.
Many roofs are not designed for, or are simply unable to take the weight of a thermosiphon system, which can weigh upwards of 500kg.
The split system puts compact. less-obtrusive panels on the roof, and locates the storage tank on the ground.
Heat Pump. There are many circumstances where an on-the-roof solar hot water system is not ideal.
- the roof does not face north
- shading is a problem
- the customer would prefer nothing on the roof
- heritage regulations prevent placing a system on a roof
In these circumstances, a heat pump solar hot water system is the answer. It is usually placed on the ground, and can be located in any convenient location- shade is not an issue.

Reduce your carbon footprint, and reduce your energy bills
We all know that energy consumption has a huge and serious effect on the environment. The energy we use every day emits harmful greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change.
Water heating is one of the biggest contributors to household greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for around 25% of the average homes carbon footprint.
With a Solahart solar hot water heater which uses the sun’s natural energy you could save up to 50-90%* of your water heating energy consumption, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2 – 3.6 tonnes every year, which is the equivalent of taking a 4 cylinder car off the road.
With hot water free from the sun, you’ll reduce your impact on climate change and make a positive step for future generations.
