Solar Hot Water

Water is heated easily with solar power. Traditional water heaters ran by electricity or gases contribute greatly to CO2 emissions. In fact one year of traditional water heating produces double the CO2 than the use of a vehicle for one year.

Solar water heaters last up to twenty years and even though they may be more costly to install they pay for themselves in eight years. Giving the homeowner twelve years of free hot water! The federal government even gives a thirty percent tax credit towards the price of installing a solar hot water heater.

Solar hot water heaters use a pump to pump the water through the solar collectors that heat the water. The water then returns to a heated storage tank. The tanks have valves that trap the heat in. If needed an auxiliary system can be used to help supply more energy when demands are high.
