Solar Water Heating uses the sun’s rays for heating water which is then stored in a hot water tank. The energy is gathered using a solar photovoltaic system by way of solar panels. This sustainable form of energy is fantastic for the environment and is free.
Solar heating may be suitable for your home depending on your hot water needs and the amount of sun you get throughout the year. Your roof must meet a number of criteria in order to install solar water heating panels, such as facing north and receiving a good amount of sun all year round.
