Solar water heaters: Is it all Greek to you?
We just love the Department of Energy–and their awesome website! While surfing their site, we found this awesome page that explains exactly how solar water heaters work. We at Adair Solar Company in Mesa feel it’s important for consumers in the Valley of the Sun not just to purchase and start using solar equipment, but to understand exactly how it works. The idea is that, when you understand how something works, you don’t have to worry IF it’s working.
The solar water heaters in Phoenix that we install all come with warranties on service and product, so if you ever have any issues with your Phoenix solar water heater, you won’t have to worry–one of our technicians will come right out and help you get right back on track again.
Here’s a little excerpt from the Department of Energy (DOE) and what they have to say about solar water heaters:
“Solar water heating systems include storage tanks and solar collectors. There are two types of solar water heating systems: active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive, which don’t.
Most solar water heaters require a well-insulated storage tank. Solar storage tanks have an additional outlet and inlet connected to and from the collector. In two-tank systems, the solar water heater preheats water before it enters the conventional water heater. In one-tank systems, the back-up heater is combined with the solar storage in one tank.”
This wonderful and informative page of the DOE website goes on to discuss the various types of residential solar water heaters. We hope you’ll have a look so you’ll know just how powerful an investment these appliances can be.
Of course, no solar water heater installation in Phoenix would be complete without rooftop solar panels on your house in Phoenix, so be sure to discuss this with the customer service representative you talk to when you call Adair Solar Company in Mesa for your FREE in-home consultation. We’re also here to answer any questions you have about solar tax credits and rebates.
Now is the time for solar energy in Arizona more than ever. It’s cheaper and saves more money than any other type of alternate energy source available in our desert landscape, and we’re happy to discuss other options for money-saving benefits with you too, including radiant barrier insulation, KVAR, and regular a/c maintenance.
