Solar Water Heating
How Many Miles Per Gallon Does Your Water Heater Get?
Did you know that your electric water heater can use as much energy as an automobile? A car that gets 22 miles per gallon and travels 12,000 miles in a year consumes approximately 11.4 barrels of oil. A family of four would use the same amount of energy every year, by heating their water with an electric water heater. In other words, installing a solar water heating system for your home provides the same environmental and energy savings benefits as taking an average car off the road.
I began installing solar water heating systems here in Brevard and Indian River counties back in the 1970's. The one thing I have learned about solar in all those years, is solar water heating is the best that solar has to offer. It is the biggest bang for the buck and best of all, affordable for everyone. In my opinion, we could solve much of the energy crisis and pollution problems, by simply mandating solar water heating. These systems will reduce your power consumption by about 30% and pay for themselves within the first 2-4 years. And all of those thousands of solar water heating systems I have installed over the past 30 years...over 95% are still in operation. These systems have paid for themselves 10 times over and prevented hundreds of millions of pounds of pollution from entering our atmosphere.
The news gets better. The federal government is now offering a 30% tax credit based on the complete purchase price of a solar water heating system. In addition to the tax credit, Florida Power & Light (FPL) is now offering a $1000 rebate for purchasing a solar water heating system. These programs are available for a limited time only. There has never been a better time to go solar!
