Solar hot water systems are a cost effective way to generate hot water for your home. It replaces the energy consumption with clean, free energy from the sun.
We use SunEarth products for our hot water systems.

Typically, from the time the contract is signed to your home or business generating solar is 3 - 4 weeks. This time frame depends on permits and product availability.
How Domestic Hot Water Systems Work
A solar hot water system is really quite simple. You're using the sun's energy to heat a solar collector full of solar fluid (or water, depending on which type of system you install), which then transfers that heat (or hot water) into your home's hot water tank.
There are two types of solar water heating systems: active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive, which don't.
Solar storage tanks have an additional outlet and inlet connected to and from the collector. In two-tank systems, the solar water heater preheats water before it enters the conventional water heater. In one-tank systems, the back-up heater is combined with the solar storage in one tank.
