  • Solar energy is and always will be free

As you can imagine, solar water heaters are powered by the sun, and this is a great advantage. Although oil prices have been going down for quite some time in the international markets, it’s only a matter of time until they start rising again, also your gas bills are also rising.

But solar energy doesn’t have an international price, it’s completely free and it will always be free, this means you will be able to save a lot of money on your energy bills, because you will only ever pay once for a solar water heater when you buy it and install it in your house (and occasionally for repair and maintenance).

  • They don’t use as much space as you would imagine.

When people talk about solar energy, you probably imagine a roof full of solar panels, but solar water heaters don’t use as much space as the solar panels that are used for generating electricity, and they are much better looking.

  • They work in cloudy weather 

Some people say this kind of technology is completely useless during cloudy or rainy days, but that’s a myth, of course they do their best work when they have abundant sunlight, but during cloudy days they keep heating water, and some systems  even include a special water reservoir, that will guarantee you will have hot water even in overcast days.
