Is The Cost Of Solar Water Heaters Really Worth It?

clock August 12, 2014 04:33 by author Chris Vigna
Countries all over the world are utilizing solar water heating, an innovative renewable energy technology that has been established for many years. But is this advanced system the right choice for your home?

While it is true that solar water heaters are more expensive and costly to install, than a common water heater, it can save a lot of money in the long run, as they do not require additional resources to like gas or wood to heat the water.  

Other benefits are based on personal use, such as:

  • How much hot water you use per day?
  • How well does your water heating system perform?
  • Is your house able to receive direct sunlight?

Natural gas, electricity, oil and other conventional fuel prices vary by area but these bills can add up to a high monthly cost. Also, there are additional costs for backing up a water heating system. However, solar water heating helps reduce traditional cost and maintenance. 

Also, when building a new home, by adding the price of a solar water heating system it will save a lot of time and money. Some banks even allow this heating system to be added to the loan or mortgage.   

Installing a solar water heater in your home can be expensive; however, it will save a pretty penny each month.

This means that solar water heaters are not just an excellent choice for your home, but they are an excellent choice for our planet as well. Solar Water Heaters are a sustainable and energy efficient method for heating up the water that we use on a daily basis and thus, helps to protect our environment.  

All of this should give you a better idea of solar water heating systems and how they can help you to save money.  If you want more information about this, remember to give The All About the Pipes Plumbing team a call, we don't flush around!

Types Of Water Heater For Your Home


  • ·         Conventional Storage Water Heaters – These are very common and they help by having a water tank with hot water throughout the day.

  • ·         Heat Pump Water Heaters – These types of water heaters allow you to transfer heated water from one place to another instead of heating all of your home’s water. 
  • ·         Solar Water Heaters – These types of water heaters use the energy from the sun to heat up the water in your home, which means you will not spend a lot on energy bills every month. 
  • ·         Indirect and Tank-less Coil Water Heaters – These types of water heaters make use of your home’s space heating system to heat your home’s water.
