Solar Water Heater Services in Tampa

Your water heater is one of the hardest working appliances in your home. Don’t believe us? Think about how many times a day you use hot water. Even if you don’t use your water heater several times a day (which you probably do) if you have a tank water heater you’re still burning fuel to keep a standing supply of hot water. You may not know it, but there’s a very good chance that you’re wasting a lot of money on an inefficient water heater. That’s where solar water heaters come in. Peninsular Plumbing offers a full range of solar water heater services throughout Tampa, FL. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert technicians.

Peninsular Plumbing provides solar water heater services in Tampa and the surrounding areas.

Types of Solar Water Heaters

There are two distinct types of water heaters: direct and indirect. Let’s take a look at them.

  • Direct: Direct solar water heaters heat water by exposing it to direct sunlight. They do this by circulating the water through a type of heat exchanger, where it absorbs radiant heat from the sun before being pumped into the house. This works well in areas like Florida, but less so in colder climates or areas that get less sunlight.
  • Indirect: Indirect solar water heaters use a more traditional method for water heating. They collect solar energy using a solar panel, convert it into an electrical current, and then use that current to power a heating coil in the water heater. This is the more popular method for solar water heating, though which one you install should depend on your technician’s recommendation.

Why Install a Solar Water Heater?

As we’ve already established, water heaters are massive energy hogs. No one actually expects you to give up using hot water, though, so if you want to save money on water heater costs you need to consider other options. Solar water heaters can keep providing you with all the hot water you’re used to, but do so by relying on free and renewable solar energy. You will save quite a bit of money over the life of your water heater by relying on solar energy, as opposed to paying for fuel the entire time. Installing a solar water heater can only help your home.
