Solar Hot Water
A solar hot water heater uses heat energy from the sun to preheat the water in your traditional hot water heater.  This requires less energy use from your hot water heater and can reduce enrgy bills by up to 50%.


How it Works:
Distilled Water in a closed loop system is pumped through the solar collectors  on your roof.  That heated water is collected in a drain-back tank to prevent pipe freezing in cold months.  When needed, the distilled water is pumped through a heat exchanger, where the heat is transferred to water in your hot water heater.


System Components:
 - New or existing hot water heater tank
 - Mounted Solar Collectors
 - Heat exchanger/control system
 - Drainback tank
 - Mounting Hardware
 - System Piping
