Basics of Solar Hot Water

The sun emits enough energy to power the whole planet for an entire year, every hour. By using solar energy as your primary heat source, you can cut your energy bill in half while having unlimited access to hot water for your home.

Solar energy can be harnessed in two ways: Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels or Solar Hot Water

Solar Hot Water is a form of renewable energy that captures the sun’s energy and uses it to heat the water in your water tank. This benefits homeowners where the demand for hot water has a large impact on energy bills, such as frequent laundry washing or large families.

Solar hot water heaters can operate in any climate. However, performance varies depending on how much solar energy is available at the site. To take advantage of these heaters, you must have an unshaded, south-facing roof on your property. Solar water heaters use the sun to heat the water or a heat-transfer fluid, and then transferred to a well-insulated storage tank.
