Solar water heaters are generally installed on the roof of a home or business and they capture the sunlight which is then used to warm the home or building’s water.  It is one of the best investments you can make in your home in terms of return on your investment.  A quality solar water heater properly installed can save you up to 90% on your water heating bill.  This is very significant because the water heating portion of the average home’s utility bill is approximately 33%.

So if you want to invest in a very smart solar investment then you cannot go wrong with a solar water heater.  It will keep the water in your home as warm or hot as you like and will be accessible anytime, day or night.  And we often forget how many different things we need hot water for.  Some of these things are as follows:

  • Laundry
  • Dishes
  • Showers
  • Baths
  • Cooking
  • And more

The pricing for solar water heaters varies depending on the country that you live in, and the number of solar contractors installing solar products.  If you live in a large city with many top solar contractors then you will likely get very competitive pricing for a good solar water heater.  You will have the advantage of going out to three or four different contractors to obtain the very best price possible.  Make sure you do research so that you know the company you are dealing with has good products and good warranties.  You can do more research and learn about solar water heaters here.

It is not always wise to immediately go for the lowest price in town, but rather look at the overall proposal that they are proposing.  There’s more to a good purchase been just the best price, so make sure you consider all factors during your purchase, such as:

  1. Product quality
  2. Price
  3. Warranty
  4. Reputation
  5. Service department
  6. How long the company has been in business
  7. Referrals

This way you can feel comfortable and confident that not only are you getting a great deal, but that the product will be installed properly and will last for a very long time.  The warranty is so important and should be one of the main considerations when making your purchase.  This is why a major factor must be how long the company has been in business, and how strong they are in the overall solar market.  If you purchase from a company that suddenly disappears then your warranty will disappear as well.  So make sure you choose wisely.
