Residential Water Heaters

Sign & Monument Lighting

Solar hot water refers to water heated by solar energy. Solar heating systems are generally composed of solar thermal collectors, a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to its point of usage, and a reservoir or tank for heat storage and subsequent use. The systems may be used to heat domestic hot water, swimming pool water, or for space heating. The heat can also be used for industrial applications or as an energy input for other uses such as cooling equipment. In many climates, a solar heating system can provide a very high percentage (50% to 75%) of domestic hot water energy.

Advantages:

• Lowest operational costs (energy is free from the sun)

• Lowest maintenance costs (minimal)

• Reduce greenhouse emissions
• Add value to your home
• Cleanest, safest and quietest source of energy
• Longer lifespan due to fewer moving parts and no corrosion
• Designed to work with Electric Water Heaters or Natural Gas Water Heaters

• Over 5 times more efficient at capturing the sun’s energy and converting it to usable • • • • • power than photovoltaic (PV) systems
• Cleanest, safest and quietest source of energy
• Solar energy does not produce any greenhouse emissions
