One of the biggest complaints people have when it comes to their hot water tanks is the fact that they are expensive to operate. Heating water accounts for one of the highest percentages of a household's energy consumption. However, that amount can be significantly reduced by switching to solar water heating. Most homeowners do not need to make any significant changes to the plumbing or wiring of their home, and a solar water heater will also take up approximately the same amount of room or less as their existing unit.
Average solar water heating costs are usually based upon the type of unit being installed, as the greater the tank's capacity is, the more money it will cost. Placing a solar water heater in a new home will likely be less expensive than it would be to install one in an existing home, since older houses might already have a water heater that would need to be removed and hauled away. Some locations have special building codes or homeowner's association bylaws that would require them to obtain a permit first, thereby driving up the price as well.

Q. What types of solar water heaters are there?
A. There are two types of solar water heaters, active and passive. An active solar water heater uses a pump that circulates water inside the unit, while a passive heater doesnít. Both have variations; an active heater either has a direct circulation system, or an indirect circulation system; and a passive heater has an integral collector storage system, convection heat storage unit, or thermosyphon system. Itís important to speak to a solar water heating professional to learn more about them, and which type would best suit your needs and budget.
Q. Is it possible to heat an adequate amount of hot water during the winter?
A. Yes, as solar water heaters only require a few hours of sunlight each day to operate. The location of your water heater will play a role in its effectiveness during the shorter days of winter.

10 Apr Central Heating: Having moved into an old country cottage we would like to replace the cheap looking uPVC windows and replace them with more traditional looking wood-effect, or indeed wooden windows in keeping with the building.
10 Apr Boiler Installation: We would like a traditional stable-type door with split openings at the rear of our property. Having not been able to find any in the usual shops we wondered what the options were in either wood or upvc materials.
