Solar Hot Water Heater Installation & Repair
Solar Hot Water Systems deliver hot water at a fraction of the price.
Solar hot water systems are also known as Solar Domestic Hot Water (SDHW) and Solar Thermal Systems (STS). 20-30% of the average residential electric bill is generated by the use of its hot water heater. Most of the hot water generated by electric or gas hot water heaters isn’t even used. Home owners are wasting money on electricity for hot water they aren’t using. Chances are that as you are reading this, your water heater is using energy to keep water hot that you will never use!The average household with a traditional water heater emits 2 tons of CO2 from the use of their water heater each year. Making the switch to a solar hot water will save up to 90% of the money you spend on electric for hot water and will make a positive environmental impact. That is why 1.5 million homes and businesses in the United States have made the switch to solar hot water heaters.
Cost Effective and Highly Efficient
Solar water heaters are the most cost effective way to generate hot water for you home. Installing a solar hot water system can reduce your hot water costs 50- 90%. Solar hot water heaters qualify for a 30% Renewable Energy Tax Credit from the federal government. A solar hot water heater will generate hot water all year round and can last 25 years or longer with regular inspection and maintenance. Solar hot water systems usually work in conjunction with existing electric or gas hot water heaters to help offset the loads on the system during increased usage or cloudy days.

Solar Hot Water Systems
Solar Hot Water Systems, also known as Solar Thermal Systems (STS) operate differently from photovoltaic (PV) systems. Solar thermal systems run water or fluid through their system. The solar panels are heated and the water running through them gets heated. The heated water is ready for use. In the case of fluid systems the heated fluid is used to heat water. There are two types of solar thermal systems;1.Active System -
An active solar hot water system means there is a pump that circulates water through the system. Active hot water systems will reduce water heating costs by up to 90%.2. Passive System -
The passive solar hot water heating system does not use a pump and instead relies on convection to move water through the system. These systems can supply homes with 80-90% of their hot water use. While they are not usually as efficient as active systems, they can be more reliable and last longer. They will not reduce water heating costs as much as active systems, but they will reduce water heating by up to 75%. Solar energy is free, and its supplies are unlimited. Using solar energy produces no air or water pollution. Households with an electric water heater consume about 6,400 KW per year for water heating. If we assume that the electricity is generated by a typical power plant with an efficiency of 30%, then the water heater generates about 8 tons of CO2. The surprising result is that the CO2 produced by a water heater is almost double that produced by a modern automobile. * On average, a solar water heater in Florida can produce 90 - 95% of your hot water needs, reducing your carbon footprint over 10,000 pounds annually. That is more than the average car, plus it saves the equivalent of 11.4 barrels of oil.
