Solar Hot Water Panels for Homes in New Orleans, Gulfport, Houston, and Beyond
Solar hot water panels work as just one part of an entire solar water heating system. In a FAFCO solar hot water heater, for example, the panels are mounted to the roof of a home and collect energy from the sun. This energy is used to heat water that is being pumped through a solar loop that runs between the panels and a water storage tank. Heat exchangers then transfer the heat from the water in the loop to the water in the storage tank, where it will be readily available for use. When there is no solar energy available, the hot water panels automatically shut off, and the water in the solar collectors is drained back into a wall-mounted tank so that it doesn’t freeze.
This innovative method of using solar energy to heat water for household use is an excellent way to conserve energy, which can help to reduce your carbon footprint and lower your monthly utility bills. In fact, heating water is one of the most expensive energy costs for most homeowners, but FAFCO solar water heaters have been proven to reduce these costs by up to 50%, and sometimes even more.
