Solar Heaters

Installing a solar heater on your home is a smart first step toward helping the environment and lowering your energy bills at the same time. Solar heaters are powered by thermal panels, which take the heat from the sun's rays and use it to make your home a more comfortable place to live.

Solar heaters begin with thermal panels affixed to your home or placed nearby. They absorb the heat and energy from the sun, and convert it to usable energy inside the home. The collectors are usually unglazed metal or plastic flat plates. They can be used for everything from heating the air in your home to warming your swimming pool.

Glazed flat plates absorb more energy, as do vacuum tube collectors. These are perfect for heating the water in your home for daily use, and also have the ability to heat your entire home during the winter months. A bit more expensive than unglazed metal or plastic panels, these higher-capacity plates pay for themselves with energy savings in the long run. The clean energy provided by a solar heater lowers your energy bills, and by avoiding use of conventional fuels, you're doing your part to help the environment. Solar heaters can provide consistent, low-maintenance service for many years.
