WHAT WILL IT COST?
Probably one of your first questions is, “How much will it cost?” There are, of course, a few questions we would need to ask you to help determine that cost. Going with a solar thermal system will be more than the cost of a traditional gas or electric system.
The sizing of your system and how you plan on using your system will be factors in determining what will be required for your home. We look at your location, the orientation for the best solar radiation, and the amount of hot water your family uses.
The offset to the cost is the reduction you will see in your utility costs, protecting you from rising fuel costs and increasing the resale value of your home.
WHAT SIZE WILL I NEED?
Just like conventional water heaters, solar water heaters come in different sizes. Sizing your new solar water heater involves determining the total number of collectors required, along with the collector area and storage volume, to meet 90 to 100% of your household hot water demands during the summer. We will spend time talking to you to learn about your lifestyle to help you get the right system.
