Thermal Solar Water Heating in East Troy
A More Cost-Effective Option to Heat Your Water
As industry leaders, O’Leary Plumbing & Heating, Inc. installs solar water heating systems for your home or commercial building utilizing your current water heater. Solar energy provides renewable and free hot water for your homes’ domestic water use. Solar collector panels, installed on a south-facing roof, absorb the sun’s energy and transfer the heat into the water as it moves through a tubing system. The heated water is then deposited into a storage tank installed ahead of your existing water heater. The storage tank assures a consistent flow of hot water even on cloudy days. Solar water heating systems can be installed on new or in existing homes. Solar energy may also be used as an alternate heat source for your home, supplying a cost-effective source for a radiant heating system.
Benefits of installing our East Troy thermal solar water heating include:
- Significantly lowers your energy bills
- Reduces your carbon footprint
- May qualify you for tax credits or rebates
Thermal Solar Water Heating for Your Pool
When you want a more cost-effective way to heat your swimming pool all year round, our thermal solar water heating system can help. A pool heating system works by installing black plastic solar absorbing panels on a south or west-facing rooftop. A diverting valve with temperature control is installed after the pool filter to transfer pool water up through the solar panels when the temperature drops below the set point. When the pool reaches the desired temperature, the diverting valve simply bypasses the solar panels. When solar panels are in use, they keep your roof and attic cooler, helping with your air conditioning costs. The system requires no additional equipment and utilizes your current pool pump. Most of our pool thermal solar water heating system installations in East Troy can be completed in one day. The only maintenance on the solar panels is fall draining. Solar panels come with a 10-year warranty with a two to three-year payback on installation costs as compared to using traditional gas heat.
