Solar Hot Water
The sun is the most abundant source of energy available on our planet. For thousands of years humans have depended on solar energy to warm their homes. Homes were sited to take advantage of natural solar heating. Since the Industrial Revolution, fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas have been used instead. Fossil fuels are increasingly expensive, dirty, and difficult to extract. Today millions of people throughout the world are using solar energy to heat their homes and water and generate electricity.
Why Solar Heat & Hot Water?
Solar works whether the weather is cold or hot. Have you ever noticed that on really cold days the sky is often the clearest? These days are ideal for solar heating.
Imagine owning your own utility company – free from price increases, shortages, and taxes. Imagine energy independence! You can make this a reality when you harvest the energy falling on your property and put it to work for you. Today's solar systems are affordable, reliable, and designed to last decades with no maintenance. They work in partnership with your existing water heater and furnace, so you'll always have heat and hot water. You'll simply pay less.
Solar thermal is unique in that the more energy you use, the more money you save. As the cost of energy increases, so do your savings. When will your current gas or electric heater pay for itself? Never! Why rent your energy when you can own it? If you're not using the sun to heat water, you're spending more than you need to. This is by far the most cost-effective way to harness the sun's energy.
A solar hot water and/or heating system is one of the best investments you'll ever make. You instantly add value to your property and reduce your utility bill forever. Solar will typically increase the life of your hot water heater and furnace because they won’t have to work as hard.
