How Much Does It Cost to Install a Solar Water Heater?
This will vary based on a wide range of factors including the size of your family (and the resulting amount of heat needed), the brand, type, and size of the solar system, the type of roof the solar panels will be mounted on, the county building codes where it will be installed, and the orientation of the panels.

How Much Can We Save if We Install a Solar Water Heating System?
You could use 85% less energy to heat your water compared to a traditional water heater. Of course, the specific results you will get will vary based on your location, how much sun your home gets, how much water you need heated, the model of solar water heater you choose, and other factors. When you work with us, we can assess your home’s solar potential to give you a specific answer on how much you are likely to save.
How Long Will It Take to Recover the Investment into a Solar Water Heating System?
It depends on the type of system. In most cases, homeowners can expect for their hot water system to pay off sooner if it is a propane and electricity system rather than a natural gas unit. Some clients see savings that essentially pay for their solar water heating system is just 3 ½ years while for others it may take eight years.
Will it Still Work When the Sun is Not Shining?
Ideally, your solar hot water heating system is going to generate about 85% of the power it needs from solar energy. However, if there are numerous cloudy days in a row, or you have a temporary issue that results in higher hot water usage (such as guests), then there are back-up elements that will kick in to ensure you get hot water.
