Solar Water Heaters
Solar water heaters use the natural radiation produced by the sun to heat your home’s water supply—they work in all types of climates even on cloudy days! Best of all, their power source, the sun, is free!
Why you need a professional
Solar Water Heaters are available in a variety of styles and setups. It’s best to consult with an experienced professional who will conduct a thorough survey of your property and hot water needs before recommending the model best suited to provide maximum heating at minimal cost.
Why a solar water heater?
For starters, you get to feel better about helping the environment. But you’ll really understand why solar heaters are a valuable addition every month when you get your utility bills. Consider the following:
Existing homes with solar water heaters enjoy savings of 50%–80% on hot water costs
Thanks to Federal Tax Incentives, new homes with a solar water heater can save $3–$5 per month in interest over a 30-year mortgage—this means you can actually save more than the solar water heater costs over the course of the mortgage!
More basic systems require professional maintenance on average only 3–5 years. More complicated systems may require some replacement parts after 2–10 years.

Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless Water Heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. Therefore, they avoid the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit. In an electric Tankless Water Heater an electric element heats the water. In a gas-fired Tankless Water Heater a gas burner heats the water. As a result, Tankless Water Heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. You don’t need to wait for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water.
Typically, Tankless Water Heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2–5 gallons (7.6–15.2 liters) per minute. Typically, gas-fired Tankless Water Heaters will produce higher flow rates than electric Tankless Water Heaters. Some smaller Tankless Water Heaters, however, cannot supply enough hot water for simultaneous, multiple uses in large households. For example, taking a shower and running the dishwasher at the same time can stretch a Tankless Water Heater to its limit.
To overcome this problem, you can install a “whole house” type Tankless Water Heater or install two or more Tankless Water Heaters, connected in parallel for simultaneous demands of hot water. You can also install separate Tankless Water Heaters for appliances—such as a clothes washer or dishwater—that use a lot of hot water in your home.
