Want to Save Money? Buy a Solar Water Heating System for Your Home in Tampa, FL
Buying a solar water heating system for your home in Tampa, Florida, is an investment that can pay for itself – and some – over time. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the average household in America with an electric water heater spends as much as 25 percent of its total energy costs just on heated water. Switching to a solar water heater (with a gas or electric unit as a backup) can result in a 50 to 85 percent reduction in your annual water-heating costs. Sunlight, which is free, is an abundant natural resource that can be utilized to heat your family’s water in a highly affordable and environmentally responsible fashion.
Though it is impossible to predict exactly how much money you will be able to save by having a solar water heating
system installed in your home in Tampa, FL, there are a handful of factors that can influence the amount, including the following:
- The cost of the solar water heater
- The efficiency rating of the system
- The amount of heated water your family uses
- The price fluctuations of alternative fuels (e.g., electricity, gas, propane)
- Maintenance expenses
- How long the system lasts
- The availability of incentives for investing in “green” technology
