Solar Water Heaters

The sun can heat water well above the temperature needed for typical household and business purposes, such as bathing, washing dishes, and washing clothes. Solar hot water heaters, or solar thermal systems, provide a method for homes and businesses to efficiently heat water in an environmentally benign way.

These systems use the sun to heat a fluid in solar collectors, which are generally mounted to the roof. The heated fluid then transfers heat directly or indirectly to water stored in a tank.


Solar hot water heaters are cost-effective over the lifetime of the system since the fuel they use — sunlight — is free. Although the initial costs of a solar hot water heater are higher than those of a conventional water heater, after an initial payback period, all subsequent fuel energy for heating water is free.

People switch to solar hot water heaters for environmental reasons, too. Solar hot systems do not emit pollutants such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere. When an average solar hot water system replaces a conventional electric water heater, the electricity saved over 20 years represents a reduction of more than 50 tons of greenhouse gases. That significantly reduces the environmental impact of our hot water activities.
