At Aqua Plumbing & Air of Bradenton, Florida, we understand that there are both economic and environmental reasons to switch from using a conventional water heater to a solar water heater. If you are considering making the switch, our service technicians are available to evaluate your Bradenton home or business and offer you input. We are certain that you will want to begin using a solar water heater immediately after you hear about the environmental advantages and possible cost savings.
The United States Department of Energy recently conducted a survey to evaluate the average amount of carbon dioxide emissions from a standard water heater. The average household or business in the United States with a typical water heater produces nearly eight tons of carbon dioxide every year. This figure represents nearly twice the carbon dioxide production of the average automobile. If every home or business owner switched to a solar water heater, emissions could be cut by approximately 75 percent.
One of the other major environmental advantages to using a solar water heater is that it powered by the sun rather than through the use of electricity. It is designed to operate only when it is needed and to shut itself off at all other times. In addition to the huge environmental advantages of operating on solar power, these water heaters can also save you a significant amount of money every month. You may also be eligible for tax credits or manufacturer rebates.
Aqua Plumbing & Air is a responsible corporate citizen in Bradenton that does our part to educate our customers about the environmental advantages of solar water heaters and other alternative sources of energy. We would be happy to provide you with feedback about other changes you can make that will benefit both your pocketbook and the environment.
