Posted by linkplayer166 on August 27th, 2020
Most of the homeowners ask this question to the installers of the water heater systems, what are the major benefits of the solar hot water system as compared to the gas and electric ones? It is a very long conversation on this topic because it is not easy to tell the difference between all of them. Solar hot water installation has its own benefits, but they depend on the type of system that the homeowner is already using. The benefits of this system also depend on the available energy resources, local climate, available water supply, orientation of the water storage tank. But the most important thing that should be considered is the needs of the homeowners, their budget, and expectations.
If you search the market, you can find so many types and sizes of the solar hot water systems which fulfil any body’s needs. This is the easiest answer that can be given to everyone. The budget and the expectations of the client is a point where both installer and client rely on the choices of each other. You can even find the cheaper solar hot water system that can run as compared to other systems. But the upfront cost of the installation of the solar heater system is double than the cost of gas one, and four times greater than the installation of the electric heater system.
Now it comes to the maintenance cost of the solar hot water system, which is considered to be higher. The homeowners need to understand this thing when the product is more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly; the cost of the installation and maintenance will also be high. The cost is the main part of the budget, so it is imperative for the homeowners to ask the installers about the cost of the spear parts and other maintenance expenses. After that, they can compare the overall cost of the other brands with the expected life after the installation. The average lifetime is 15 years.
There are some cheaper alternatives to the solar heating systems that can reduce the greenhouse gas effects a lot. That’s why some homeowners might consider a High-Efficiency Natural Gas Continuous Flow System or High-Efficiency Natural Gas Storage System. Some of these gas systems have the same percentage of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions just like Electric-boosted solar hot water systems.
When it comes to the upfront change cost from an electric to the natural gas system, it is almost half of the cost of changing electric to solar or gas to the solar hot water system. The maintenance cost is also low, and the spear parts as well. It is because there are very few components in this system that can fail.
The benefits of solar hot water systems that are guaranteed are for the environment. When you replace a solar hot water system with an electric water heater system, it can significantly reduce the greenhouse gas effect of heating water. If you are a homeowner, living in a place with maximum solar effects, has a good budget, your house has enough roof space, and want to reduce your utility bills and greenhouse gas emission, then it is highly recommended for you to convert your hot water system to solar hot water.
The cost of the running natural gas hot water system is half of the cost of the electric water heater system that is the same in size. Even though the LPG gas is worth considering because of its efficiency, you cannot ignore this fact that the energy cost of this system is the highest as compared to any other type of hot water system.
