Solar Water Heaters for Residents of Tampa, FL
At Florida Energy Water & Air, we proudly install residential solar water heaters throughout Tampa and across much of Central FL. The solar water heating systems that we carry – all made by Rheem – are technologically advanced pieces of equipment that harness the sun’s energy and use it to heat water naturally. The practical advantages of using a solar water heater instead of a system that relies exclusively on gas or electricity are many.
Consider the following if you are thinking about “going solar” in Tampa, FL:
- Lifespan – The operational lifespan of a solar water heater is long, between 15 and 30 years. Gas and electric water heaters typically only last between 8 and 12. After buying a solar water heater, decades will go by before you need to worry about replacing it.
- Cost savings – The fuel that solar water heaters use, sunlight, is free. The Florida Solar Energy Center estimates that switching from an electric water heater to one that uses solar energy can actually lower your annual water-heating costs by 50 to 85 percent.
- Home value – According to a report published by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the value of a home increases by $20 for every $1 reduction in annual operating costs created by energy-saving technologies.
- Carbon footprint – Heating your water naturally with a solar water heater will prevent thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from entering the atmosphere.
Solar water heaters made by Rheem are some of the finest products of their kind available in North America. Contact Florida Energy Water & Air today to learn more. We perform solar water heater installation throughout the Tampa Bay area and beyond.
