How Can a Solar Water Heater Help You Save Money in Tampa, FL?
One of the best ways to save money is to have a solar water heater installed at your home in Tampa, Florida. This is especially true if you have a big family and get a very large energy bill each month. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a typical household with an electric water heater spends 25 percent of its home energy costs just on heating water. By using a solar water heating system and having an electric or gas water heater as a backup, you can potentially lower your monthly energy bill by as much as 85 percent.
How much money, specifically, will you be able to save by having a solar water heater installed in Tampa, FL? Several factors will come into play, such as:
- The cost of the system, fully installed
- How energy efficient the system is
- How much sunlight you receive (not an issue in Florida)
- How much heated water your family uses
- Maintenance expenses
- The lifespan of the system
- Whether you qualify for governmental incentives (like tax credits) for investing in green technology
With help from Florida Energy Water & Air, you will be able to “go solar” and not only begin to save money but also be kinder to the environment. That’s because the “fuel” that solar water heaters use – solar energy – is totally nonpolluting. Solar energy is clean, abundant, and free.
