Save Money. Buy a Solar Water Heater for Your Home in Melbourne, FL

Solar water heating technology will, first and foremost, enable you to spend less money on water heating every year.

The “fuel” that solar water heaters use – sunlight – is, of course, freely available and always abundant in Florida. Actual cost savings will depend on how much the system is used, the efficiency rating of the unit, the price of the unit, and whether it enables you to qualify for any federal- or state-based rebates, incentives, or cost offsets.
