Question by Craig R: Are solar water heaters worth the investment?
Im thinking of having a installed and wonder if its worth the investment?
Answer by Mawia
It depends where you live and what type you install.
We lived just off the equator for 18 months and had a 45 gallon drum on the roof of the house – it was painted matte black and at the end of the day, the water was warm enough to take a shower.
If you mean a water heater that is assisted with electricity from solar panels – that might be worth a try. Check out some testimonials first.
My vote would go with in-line natural gas hot water heaters that only heat what you are using at point of use.
