The sun is a very powerful energy producer. In fact, our ancestors have harnessed the power of the sun for water heating purposes since before the 1900’s. Known as the “Sunshine State”, Florida is the perfect place to own a solar water heater. A solar water heater consists of a solar collector, controller, a storage tank with one heating element, a pump, mechanical ball valve and many safeguards including freeze protection. The “open loop” solar water heater works by pumping potable drinking water from your storage tank to a collector fastened to your roof. The water is then heated as it flows through copper lines in the collector and down to the tank. If there is not sufficient sunlight, a backup element will turn on to produce hot water.
Installing a solar water heater into a home or business can drastically cut the cost of water heating bills. Granted, the upfront cost is more than a standard water heater, but over time, a solar water heater will pay for itself. Whether interested in a solar water heater for the savings or the reduction of your environmental footprint, those who choose a solar water heater will not regret their decision.
When our professionals come to install your water heater, many factors determine how long the process will take and what the installation involves. This includes the location of panel placement for maximum efficiency, trees that may block sunlight, water supply distance, placement of water tank, and more.
