There are two basic types of solar water heaters. The active solar water heater system uses a series of copper tubes that run from the water heater tank or a separate tank to a solar panel on the roof. The water passes through the solar panel, where it is heated and then returned back to the water heater or separate tank. The passive solar water heater system uses a water tank that is located on the roof, where it uses sunlight to circulate hot water through the system without help from solar panels. Passive systems are durable and easy to install, but must be located near the storage tank that circulates the water. The solar water heater installation technicians can work with either type.
Solar Water Heater Costs: Prices have come down in recent years due to technological advancements. In general, passive systems are slightly less expensive that active systems. There are a number of factors that can impact the cost of a solar water heater installation including the location of the home, the climate of the area, the type of roof on the home and the size of the tank the homeowner selects.
