Save Money. Buy a Solar Water Heater for Your Home in Tampa, FL
You want to save money, right? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, investing in a solar water heater for your home in Tampa, Florida, makes excellent economic sense. Though it’s safe to say they usually cost more than conventional systems upfront, solar water heaters virtually pay for themselves – and more – over time. The amount of money that you save will, of course, depend on a variety of factors, such as:
- The amount of warm/hot water that your household uses
- The solar water heater’s efficiency ratings
- The amount of sunlight that your home receives
- The cost of conventional fuels like natural gas and electricity
- The availability of solar energy tax credits and rebates
Because sunshine – the “fuel” that a solar water heater
uses – is free, you will enjoy lower energy bills each month. But, lowering your utility bills isn’t the only way that a solar water heating system can help you save money. Consider this: the life expectancy of an average solar water heating system is somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years. Conventional systems that utilize gas or electricity, on the other hand, last about 8 to 12 years, or roughly half as long. Thus, with a solar water heating system, you will be able to go twice as long before you have to pay for a replacement unit.
