What You Need to Know


Roof space was taken with PV panels, so I mounted the solar hot water collectors "awning-style" on a south facing exterior wall.

Other Benefits:

Besides providing solar energy my collectors provide passive shading in the summer!

Maintenance Requirements:

Minimal after initial kinks were resolved.

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

I have a PV system as well.

My Motivation:

Environmentalism- global warming- reduction in burning of fossil fuels. Decrease natural gas fuel bill. Increase value of my house.


Look at solar hot water as an efficient, affordable option or addition to a solar PV system.

Experience with Installer:

Installer was professional and timely. No issues with the one day installation process.
