Solar heating can reduce a home’s energy consumption by as much as 50 percent. Many people don’t realize the energy required just for hot water. The average family’s energy consumption for heating water for laundry, dishes, showers and long soaks in the tub is 15 – 20 percent.
Hot water and space heating together account for close to half of an average home energy consumption. Solar hot water replaces that energy consumption with clean, free energy from the sun.
A huge percent of our national energy consumption comes from our homes. Solar heater can and will make enormous progress toward a cleaner world and toward preserving natural resources.
