If the objective is to keep the energy consumption of the home on a low, then a solar water heater could be the right thing.
Solar water heaters are beneficial in several ways, including the financial front. Reduced energy usage will be reflected in the bills every month.
It is something to consider with the rising prices of fossil fuels.
That means higher gas heating bills on average, and any revenue which does not have to be spent on utility grids is money saved.
What a lot of customers don’t consider is it takes a substantial amount of energy to consistently heat water.
With a solar water heater, it becomes possible to cut the energy consumption and thereby bills by 50% to even 90%.
The other beneficiary is the environmental impact, which is derived from the usage of solar water heaters.
A household with a solar water heater may save upwards of 4 tons of greenhouse emissions as compared to the usual electric heater.
That is equivalent to the emissions given by a small car for every home.
Fortunately, Solar Sun Surfer invests heavily in its personnel to make sure our market gets the best quality services to the customers can count on the expertise of our staff when it comes to service installation.
The installation will be done right on the first try. We also provide for commercial needs as facilities that have high hot water demands and great access to the sun may be excellent candidates for solar water heating.
These include hotels, health clubs, restaurants, and even salons.
A commercial structure would utilize the same system design as the residential, including back-up for hot water heating when the sun is low, and there are high loads.
Solar Sun Surfer also provides for solar cooling. It may be a bit contradictory though when it comes to application, solar cooling uses collectors linked to a chiller.
These are reliable and have only one moving part.
The basis is to regulate the temperatures when the environment is too hot and is similar to the same application used for solar pool heating.
This is one of the more popular solar incentives which allow the customer to use their solar output as storage within the electrical grid.
When the panels produce more electricity than what is needed, then the energy sent to the grid can be used in exchange for credit.
When the solar output exceeds the energy being consumed from the utility grid the meter starts to roll backward to show there is more energy stored than what the system is taking in.
At night or other times when the panels are not producing as much, it is possible for one to pull energy from the grid and use the provided credits so that it offsets the cost of the power.
With the right sizing, the client can produce sufficient energy to match the use of the system for an entire year.
It is not only for residential but also for commercial purposes as businesses can offset their utility bills significantly over the year.
On the other hand, the amount of electricity from the panels may also vary throughout the year.
In this case, net metering will assist in accounting for the differences by crediting for the excess power that comes from the panels so they can be used at a later time.
Though it is not the only way utilities compensate homeowners for going solar, it is the most common.
By the year 2016, there were 41 states which had legislation for net metering, and that number should continue rising significantly.
It remains one of the best cost-saving options both for commercial and solar scales.
Solar Sun Surfer caters to both commercial and residential customers.
The costing is not sold according to the panel sizing or structure but on the kilowatt hour.
Both the residential and commercial panels may be mounted on the roof using a bolted racking system.
There is an option for a non-penetrating mounting system which would allow for a faster and more efficient installation.
For commercial options, that could make a significant dent in the time for installation.
This is one of the more popular options in Napa County considering the hot Californian climate and the abundance of homes with pools. In this system, the solar pool heating system facilitates water streaming through a filter before it gets to the solar collector.
The collector is a heating conduit with energy from the sun that maintains the water at a designated temperature.
The water is then recirculated to the pool continuously to support a particular temperature. The great thing with the solar pool heating systems is they are long-lasting, and most can have a duration between 20 to 25 years.
There are virtually zero operational costs because there is no need for using gas or electricity because the same filtering system would be utilized for the pools water by the connectors which function using radiation from the sun.
The only tradeoff that comes with the solar installation services is the relatively high cost, especially when it comes to commercial options for water and structure heating.
Fortunately, this is offset by never having to pay utilities again, especially if you are in a sunny climate.
You will be able to breakeven with the investment within a period of one to two years in not cases.
