Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar hot water is probably the most widely used green energy technology.  It can provide year-round hot water for your home, pool, or commercial building.

A solar water heater uses the sun's energy rather than electricity or gas to heat household water.   Operating efficiency of a solar collector varies during the day as solar radiation, ambient temperature, and collector temperature are affected by the changing position of the sun.


Benefits of Solar Hot Water 

  • Solar water heaters pay for themselves in a short amount of time.
  • Solar water heaters are more economical over the life of the system than heating water by other means.
  • In Florida, a solar water heater can save an average 15 to 30 percent of your total annual electric bill.
  • Solar water heaters have very little maintainence.



Sizing Considerations
  • Size of family to be served.
  • Number of employees in building.
  • Type of roof on which the collector is to be installed.
  • Amount of rebates or incentives.
  • Building code requirements .
