Solar Water Heating

Heating your water doesn’t have to drain your wallet, it can save you money. For decades people have been using solar water heaters to heat their water using the sun’s energy.  So, why is solar water heating becoming so popular?  Over the last few years the cost of energy has risen significantly, making the cost for heating your water more expensive.  If you have a swimming pool, you’ve probably noticed a staggering rise in your utility bills.

Our system provides you with clean renewable energy and is quick to install, reliable, and requires very little maintenance.  Heat transfer fluid flows to your roof, through the solar collector where it heats up, and finally returns back to the solar storage tank that feeds your current natural gas or electric water heater.  Our automated controller tells your system how to operate.  For example, whenever you use hot water by taking a shower, the solar storage tank feeds hot water into your traditional water heater so that you use less natural gas or electricity.  Our system works well in conjunction with natural gas, electric, or even instantaneous water heaters to save both your money and the air we breathe.

Solar Power

We can quickly determine what is possible for your situation and can help you apply to the Ontario Power Authority and your local utility for interconnection with the electricity grid. The electricity from your solar photovoltaic system is put back into the electricity grid and the local utility pays you for the electricity produced over a 20 year contract.

Solar Pool Heating

The solar pool heater also allows your system to drain itself to prevent freezing in the winter and, when combined with the solar controller, it knows when to circulate the water through your system. When the temperature on the roof is warmer than the temperature in the pool, a 3-Port valve automatically turns to direct the flow of water to the roof first and then to the pool.
