Solar Heating Systems
Residential solar heating is renewable energy at its finest– and it’s also a clean, energy-efficient way to power your home. Once installed on your south-facing rooftops, high efficiency solar panels can collect the thermal energy (heat) from the sun and use it for heating water, space heating, cooling, and pool heating. Since solar thermal systems displace the need for electricity or natural gas, solar heating offers substantially reduced long-term energy costs while simultaneously protecting the environment.
A bright investment
With the price of fossil fuels expected to rise significantly in the next decade, renewable energy systems like solar power are an excellent investment. By collecting energy from the sun, homeowners can expect to see a return on their investment in renewable energy sources in as little as 3 to 6 years. By allowing your household to generate a large portion of its own power as a solar home, solar energy will provide substantial cost savings in the long run.
Go solar and join the sustainable energy movement
More and more Americans are seeing the advantages of solar heating, and rightly so. In 2010, the U.S. saw 35,464 solar water heating systems and 29,540 solar pool heating systems installed, heating a total of more than 65,000 homes, businesses and pools. By converting to home solar energy systems with the help of Superior Mechanical, you can become part of the global movement for renewable, clean energy.
How Superior Mechanical helps
If you decide to invest in a solar heating system, we will first assess your home’s square footage to determine the optimal system needed. Then, we will install all the required elements, including the solar collector, heat exchanger, insulation piping, hot water storage tank, and electronic controls. Once installed, your solar water heating system can be expected to provide a significant percentage (40 to 80 percent) of a building’s energy needs.
