  • System design that meets your needs and preferences
  • Solar power and battery storage
  • Lowering heat loads and operating costs
  • Improving comfort inside your home
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Solar HVAC Design

Global warming and rapidly increasing energy prices are the big drivers of the huge environmental changes we are seeing in Australia and the world generally. Part of this is the increasing trend towards all-electric homes.

A comfortable and efficient all-electric home starts with good design. The better the thermal performance of your house, the less requirement you have for mechanical heating and cooling solutions.

Focus on these three areas in particular to reduce heat loss:

  1. Ceilings
  2. Windows
  3. Walls, floors and open windows / air gaps

About us – Principal Consultant

About us, I am the Principal Consultant of Hydrosol and a qualified Thermal Performance Assessor. I am passionate about all-electric home designs that make living comfortable with low energy needs using solar power.

Contact us to explore tailored solutions around solar heating and cooling for your new build or renovation.

My interest in sustainability goes back over 4 decades starting from my time at Melbourne based manufacturer Siddons Ramset Limited (Sidchrome Spanners, Ramset Fasteners, Rockwool Insulation, Raypak Boilers, etc).

Apart from Ramset Fasteners, I was also involved in rockwool manufacturing in the 1980s insulating homes and commercial facilities to reduce heat loads such as Loy Yang power station. Other projects absorbed sound such as the city rail loop stations and Hamer Hall.

In 1983, we put the first domestic heat pump water heater onto the Australian market to critical acclaim, the ‘Siddons Solar Plus’. These units gave long economical service, up to 30 years. From 2005 until 2016 we manufactured Siddons Solarstream heat pump water heaters. Hydrosol supports the many units in the field today, including my own operating since 2006.
