Heating water is one of the larger expenses that homeowners have in their electrical bills. By switching the heat source to be the sun, it makes a noticeable reduction in this bill month after month. And with these solar hot water heaters having a useful life of 15 years or more, this is a significant ongoing reduction in electricity usage and financial savings. Solar hot water heaters are also highly efficient at turning solar energy into heat energy used to heat the water.
Solar hot water heaters can coexist with electrical solar panels on a home’s roof as well as they typically don’t take up much room on a roof. Homeowners can easily have both systems for substantial savings on their electrical bills while enjoying hot water any time they desire. These solar hot water heaters are also less expensive than solar photovoltaic panels in part because they take up so little space to generate hot water.
Adding a solar hot water heater to your home allows you to take advantage of the natural resources that we have around us. Utilizing the sunlight to heat your water works even when you may not have power, so you can still clean dishes, take showers, and more. This will also reduce the carbon footprint of your home as you aren’t using oil, coal, natural gas, or other energy sources to heat your hot water.
There are many reasons why homeowners are choosing more and more to add a solar hot water heater to their homes in Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Juno Beach, North Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas. It might be to save money on electricity, or to utilize the natural sunlight in as many ways as possible, or even to have hot water if they power goes out, but whatever the reason is, Kasper Electrical can help you to install a solar hot water heater at your property.
