Solar hot water gives you the most bang for your buck. With its simple design, it is extremely durable and efficient and is such a great investment that it is now required to be installed in all new homes (learn how solar hot water systems work). On average, a properly sized and installed solar hot water system will pay for itself in three years or less. There is no other home improvement that has such an incredible return.
Hot water is something we use every day, yet most people never think twice about this luxury. One of the easiest ways to start saving money is by installing a solar hot water heater. In a typical American home, hot water account for 15 – 30% of the overall utility bill. Since solar hot water heating systems pay for themselves in as little as three years, why not utilize Hawaii’s incredible natural resources and get your hot water the more efficient and natural way?
Along with saving money, you will also be taking a step towards energy independence. With its simple design and no moving parts, solar hot water heaters are extremely durable and easy to maintain, requiring no more care than a standard heating system. By going solar, your ability to take a hot shower will no longer be in the hands of utility providers. Of course, going solar is great for the environment. A solar hot water heater can prevent up to 5,000 pounds of carbon dioxide and 20 pounds of sulfur dioxide from being released into the atmosphere annually. This is equivalent to recycling over 76 tons of waste instead of sending it to the landfill or taking 43 cars off the road. By choosing a solar hot water heater, you will be investing in energy savings, energy independence, and a cleaner environment.
Hawaii is known for its beautiful surroundings and sunny weather, yet more petroleum is shipped here than any other state and electricity rates are the highest in the nation. Take control of your electricity costs and make a smart investment by going solar!
A solar electric photovoltaic (PV) system turns sunlight into usable electricity (learn more about how solar photovoltaic electric systems work).
