When deciding if a solar water heater upgrade is right for your Denver area home, call the Denver water heater experts at Bell Plumbing and Heating. While there are many factors to consider, we can go over your options and provide professional advice.
Here are some things to thing about to get you started.
Solar technology has become more advanced in recent years, and with the right model, you could save a lot of energy and reduce your water heating bills by half. In addition to saving money, you can feel good about using a sustainable source of energy to heat the water in your home.
Keep in mind that while you need the right conditions, a solar water heater does not need to be in an area that gets constant sunlight; however, Denver is one of the sunniest cities in the country, so you will be getting the full benefit of installing a solar water heater.
Getting the most out of your investment is more than living in a sunny climate. You’ll also need to factor in the cost of fuel. If the fuel costs are extremely high in your area, then you are probably getting more benefit from solar energy. However, if you already heat your home and water with a cheap fuel source, then the installation cost may cancel out the savings.
