Solar Water Heaters
Solar Thermal Water Heating (also called domestic hot water) is a simple, reliable, and cost-effective technology that harnesses the sun’s energy to provide for the hot water needs of homes and businesses. A Federal Rebate allows you receive a tax credit worth 30% of the system cost! This is the best time to reap the numerous benefits of solar power!
- There are two types of water heaters:
- Passive and Direct
- Passive is best for central Texas
Passive solar water heating is a simple, reliable, and cost-effective method of harnessing the sun’s energy to provide for the energy needs of your home and business.
Passive Solar hot water systems supply an average 80-90% of a household annual water heating needs. With nearly 1/3 of the average electric bill devoted to heating water, a
solar hot water system is the best choice and smart investment you can make for your house and for the environment. Energy savings will pay for the system in as little as three to five years.
The Passive Solar Water Heater is a self-sufficient system. Independent of electricity, it gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your water heating bills will not increase. It also allows you to enjoy hot water even during black-outs.
