Residential Solar Hot Water & Pool Heaters
Residential solar water heating is a long-standing, highly efficient form of energy for domestic use.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) states that almost 75% of residential energy consumption in the US is related to water heating, space heating, and space cooling.
Since 1975, Alternate Energy Technologies, and its predecessors, have designed direct and indirect residential solar hot water systems that produce 80 to 4,500 gallons of hot water a day. AET manufactures equipment that is affordable, reliable, and low maintenance.
We also offer solar pool and hot tub heating systems for homes, providing many benefits.
Residential Solar Thermal Systems
Protect yourself against ever-rising energy costs by investing in a solar hot water heating system that you can own outright-never paying for hot water again.
Our systems provide hot water for domestic use, space heating and pre-heats to boilers. All our systems come with back up heating capabilities. Solar Water Heating Systems are very effective in residential applications.
The Indirect Pressurized Series is a type of Residential Solar Hot Water System referred to as “indirect” because the sun, through a roof-mounted collector, heats fluid circulating in a closed-off solar loop which never comes in direct contact with usable water stored in an insulated tank.
The Direct Series systems, commonly found in the Southern United States and Tropical Climates, are referred to as direct because the sun’s heat is transferred through the collector directly to the usable waterline; no antifreeze is required. When the sun is shining, a pump circulates water from the bottom of a storage tank through collectors where it is heated, and then returned to the tank for storage and eventual use.
Benefits of Residential Solar
Sunlight can provide an endless supply of free energy for your hot water needs year-round. In fact, more solar energy hits the earth in one hour than all of humanity can consume in a year.
With immediate energy cost savings up to 38% and pay back periods in as little as 3 years, you can own a lifetime of free hot water. Plus, with AET's time-tested solar hot water systems exhibiting lifespans of 30-50 years, you'll recoup your investment and save thousands of dollars in hot water heating costs. Typical savings is approximately 9% per person in the home if currently using an electric water heater.
