Solar Water Heaters in Pensacola, FL
We live in a very hot climate for much of the year, but that doesn't mean that we want to be taking cold showers every morning. You need a great water heater in your home with which to heat water for use throughout your household. From showering to washing the dishes and doing the laundry, you rely upon your water heater quite a bit throughout the day. Of course, all of that hot water does come at a price.
If you want to enjoy sufficient hot water in your household, at a much cheaper cost, then you may want to consider the use of a solar water heater in Pensacola, FL. We are fortunate enough to have plenty of sunshine most of the time, and you can put that sunshine to use in heating water when you have a great solar water heater installed on your property.

Active vs. Passive Solar Water Heaters
Before you can go about using a solar water heater in your home, you must first figure out which type of solar water heater best suits your needs. There are a few different options to choose from. The first decision that you’ll have to make is whether you want to use a passive or an active system.
An active solar water heater is one which uses pumps and controls in order to move water throughout the system. They may be direct, in which water pumped through the collectors and right into the home, or indirect, in which a heat transfer liquid is pumped through the collectors, which then passes through a heat exchanger in order to heat water. Because we don’t really have freezing temperatures around here, direct active systems are a great option to consider. Passive systems, such as integral collector–storage systems, are also worthy of consideration, and are typically less expensive than active systems. They are also very reliable and long–lasting. Work with us to determine which best suits your needs.
We Install and Service Solar Water Heaters
Regardless of the type of solar water heater that you choose to use in your home, one fact remains the same for all: a professional installation is a must. If you take any risks with the quality of your solar water heater installation, there is just no way in which you can hope for that solar water heater to function as effectively and efficiently as possible. You also run the risk of damage to your system itself, or of water damage to your property due to leaks. When we install your solar water heater, of course, you need have no such worries.
Even with a great solar water heater installation, mind you, it is very possible that you’ll encounter operational problems from time to time with your system. This is simply the nature of any mechanical system. When you do encounter problems, it is important that your hired technician has plenty of experience in working with solar–specific issues. That will be the case when you hire us. Remember, too, to schedule your solar water heater maintenance with a member of our team, so that it functions as reliably and effectively as possible.
