Hot Water Solar Heating System

Jul 17, 2014

A solar water heating system is one of the best ways to save money and help out the environment. Although heaters like these have been around for decades, they are lately becoming more and more popular as people discover the many advantages of a solar heating system.

How They Work

A hot water solar heating system works by using a heat collector. A heat collector is a large, dark panel that is usually mounted on the roof to gather heat form the sun. A fluid is piped through the collector and to a holding tank filled with water, transferring this heat from the sun to your water supply and warming it up until it's ready to use. This process is so efficient that it can be used to heat water any time of the year.

Why They're Great

One of the greatest advantages to a solar heater is that it cuts back on your home's energy consumption, whether in the form of natural gas or electricity. This helps out the environment as well as reducing your utility bills. Better yet, the federal government and many states give tax rebates or credits for installing a solar heater. One of the greatest advantages, though, is that these heaters reduce wasted energy and emissions, thus helping out the environment. Going green is much easier than many people think.

A solar heating system is cheap, efficient, and environmentally friendly. With so many advantages, it's no wonder that so many people are switching to these water heaters. Call (602) 870-6840 today to speak with an expert at Donley Service Center about installing a solar heating system in your home.
