4 Unexpected Benefits of Installing a Solar Water Heater
Nestled amidst the lush Floridian landscape and only a stone’s throw away from the coast, most Clearwater residents know the environmental importance of going green. What homeowners might not realize, however, is that something as simple as installing a solar water heater comes with numerous benefits in addition to being ecofriendly. When the time comes to install your next water heater, it’s well worth leaving behind gas or electric options in favor of going solar.
While a solar water heater requires a larger initial investment, it comes with tremendous money-saving potential. Homeowners who replace their electric or gas water heater with a solar water heater
often find 4 unexpected benefits:
- That they qualify for a property tax abatement due to their installation of a renewable energy-based appliance, which saves them money come tax season.
- That they qualify for a federal tax credit of up to 30% due to their installation of a renewable energy-based water heater.
- That their monthly bills are much lower, as they don’t have to pay electric or gas companies for all of their home’s energy consumption.
- That they don’t need to replace their water heater as quickly, since the lifespan of a solar water heater is roughly 20 years (compared to the average 7-year lifespan of a gas or electric water heater).
On the whole, homeowners who install a solar water heater can look forward both to going green and saving some green. Sound interesting?
