Solar Water Heaters in Idaho Falls, ID

Your water heater works tirelessly throughout the day, but is it truly efficient? Your standard, storage tank water heater comes with the unfortunate side effect of standby heat loss. If a batch of hot water is not used soon enough, it can begin to lose some of its heat, and it will just need to be reheated again. If you’re using a renewable energy source, however, it’s really not a problem. That’s where the solar water heater comes in.

A Pro Plumbing Inc. has been installing water heaters for the residents of Idaho Falls and the surrounding areas since 2001. With solar energy becoming more popular every year, we’re happy to support the initiative with the solar water heating systems. When installed by an expert, these systems can help you cut down on expenses and even provide a great introduction into solar energy systems.

Contact us today to schedule an estimate for solar hot water heater installation. Your satisfaction and peace of mind is our top priority.

How Does a Solar Water Heater Work?

In terms of its day-to-day operation, a solar water heater is not much different than a regular water heater. The main difference is simply that it receives power from the sun instead of from the electrical grid or from natural gas lines.

There are many kinds of solar water heaters on the market, so one explanation of how they work will not apply to all of them. However, a popular type is the active, indirect system. These kinds use the solar panels that many are familiar with when thinking of "solar energy." The sun heats the panels, converts the solar energy into electricity, and is then used to power the water heater like a traditional electric water heater.

In order for the solar water heating system to provide your home with the right amount of hot water, you’ll need to have it sized and installed by a professional plumber.

Solar Water Heating Benefits

How much money you want to save with your solar water heater is up to you. You can opt for a smaller system that can cut your current heating bill in half, or you can invest upfront in a larger system that will foot the entire bill. A system that powers itself can pay itself off within a few years, allowing you to set aside all the money you’ll be savings. Plus, any extra electricity you store with your panels can either sold back to the electric company or stored in your home as a backup power source for a rainy day.
