Heating water in your home is one of the most energy consuming demands you have. The cost to heat water in your home could be up to 30% of your total energy costs. A solar hot water system will reduce the energy you use to heat your hot water by anywhere from 60-80%.
Solar water heaters are the easiest entry into renewable energy.
How would you like to have free hot water for the next 40 years? If energy prices increase by 6 percent annually, the average family would save thousands of dollars over the coming decades by installing a solar water-heating system that supplies just 65 percent of their hot water.
You’ll also pay reduced utility bills — saving more money every time rates rise. Within a few years, you’ll recover the initial expense. Experts agree, a solar water heater is far and away the easiest initial investment in renewable energy. Perhaps best of all, you’ll enjoy hot baths or showers with the satisfaction of knowing the energy comes directly from the sun.
