Solar Water Heating for Your Home

What is Solar Water Heating?

A solar water heating system captures the warmth of the sun and uses it to reliably heat water for your home. The system works in tandem with your existing natural gas water heater so that your family has their usual available hot water, seven days a week. Installing a system could help lower your natural gas bill, reduce your carbon footprint, and make your home more sustainable.
