Want to Save Money? Have a Solar Water Heating System Installed in Your Home in Sarasota, FL
One of the easiest ways to save money is to have a solar water heating system installed in your home in Sarasota, Florida. Solar water heaters, which are also sometimes referred to as solar domestic hot water systems, utilize a form of energy – sunshine – that is entirely free. According to the National Renewal Energy Laboratory, the average household in America with a conventional electric water heater allocates 25 percent of its home energy expenses just to heat water. The NREL estimates that, by making the switch from an electric water heater to one that utilizes solar energy, you can slash the size of your monthly water-heating bill by as much as a whopping 85 percent. In most cases, a backup electric or gas water heater is required in the event there is insufficient sunshine or the demand for heated water in the household is high.
The precise amount of money you will be able to save by having a solar water heating system installed in Sarasota, FL, is impossible to determine in advance. But, chances are your savings will be considerable. Factors will include:
- How much the system costs, fully installed
- The system’s efficiency rating
- Future fluctuations in the price of gas and electricity
- Maintenance expenses
- How long the system lasts
- The availability of incentives (e.g., tax credits) for investing in environmentally friendly technology
