Solar Water Heater
Why consider solar water heater?
Solar hot water heater installation is a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home or business. Many people don't realize the energy required just for domestic hot water. 15-20% of the average family's energy consumption is for heating water for laundry, dishes, showers and long soaks in the tub. A solar hot water heater can help you reduce your hot water costs by up to 70%. They can also be used in any climate.
Is installing a solar thermal heater expensive?
Solar water heaters will provide your home or business with a reliable source of hot water while substantially reducing your monthly expenses. Traditional hot water heaters use fossil fuels, or draw electricity generated by fossil fuels, which are an ongoing source of pollution that seem to get more expensive and damaging by the month. With a range of options and a one-time investment, solar hot water heaters provide remarkable savings over time and contribute to a greener environment. With many state and federal incentives, the installation cost of solar systems can be reduced by up to 65%.
How many solar panels are required?
For most homes, two or three roof-mounted solar panels and an 80 or 120 gallon water tank are all that’s required. As the energy from the sun warms the heating fluid found in your home’s photovoltaic module (PV), the heat produced is transferred to the liquids in your holding tanks. This will produce enough heated water for all-day use of faucets, baths and other appliances. On extended cloudy periods, you current water heating system can serve as a backup.
Aside from heating water in your home, solar water heaters can also offer ample amount of heat for your pool, bath tub or whole building. They can efficiently supplement your building’s hydronic systems such as radiant baseboards and floors, and panels. Think of it: Space and hot water heating consumers about 50% of your home energy costs. Installing a good solar thermal heater will give you clean and free energy, while also helping you save money.
