Solar Hot Water at Sumintra LLC

Solar water heating is a practical way to help the environment and save money without having to change your lifestyle or sacrifice on comfort. You will not use as much conventional fuel (electricity, oil or gas) to heat water for domestic purposes so your utility bill will be lower. Our design will be integrated with your existing water heating system so that when solar energy is scarce, your conventional water heater can provide additional heating as necessary.

Hot Water Solar Panels For our temperate climate we would design a solar water heater that consists of a solar collector and a tank/heat exchanger. When the sun shines, it heats an antifreeze fluid that flows in the collector, which is then pumped through a heat exchanger where the heat is transferred to the potable water that you will use. This water is then stored a tank which will feed your existing water heater.

Currently, there is a federal financial incentive for installing a solar hot water system. Under the law customers who install a solar hot water system on their homes are eligible for a tax credit of 30% of the cost of the system you install. State rebates are available for solar water heating systems as well. Pennsylvania offers a 25% rebate on the cost of the solar water heating system capped at $2,000. Delaware offers a 25% rebate on the cost of the system, capped at $3,000. Please contact us so we can carefully explain how these financial incentives work.
