Commercial solar hot water is not new. Large and small companies, hotels and resorts have been using it to save money for years now.

Not until recently have Commercial Plumbing Contractors pursued the solar how water niche. The demand use to be low but today we are now finding more and more licensed plumbing contractors being asked to contribute their knowledge and expertise in the solar hot water area. Whether it is a system for a new commercial project/facility or an eco-friendly addition, commercial plumbers are being asked to design/build systems for facilities from simple neighborhood laundry mats, public swimming pools to some of the largest name hotels, resorts and institutions. All businesses are looking to cut costs in their fuel energy costs and solar hot water is turning out to be a 'hot' and money saving solution.

All you really need today for effective solar hot water heating are two things: you need solar panels and you need a hot water storage tank. Solar panels are made from evacuated tube collectors that simply collect the solar energy from the sun, transfer this heat to the water and then into the copper coil heat exchanger located inside the hot water storage tank and from there it moves on to the domestic hot water system. This is one of the most efficient ways to use the energy of the sun for hot water uses.

The second component for solar hot water is the storage hot water tank. A storage tank can be designed and built for any type or size of project, regardless if it is for a new building or a pre-existing building. So long as you have a place that is flat, level and can support the weight of the water in the tank. Getting very large water storage tanks into existing buildings use to be a major problem but today we use a specially designed storage tank that comes in a collapsible form and can fit through a 19 inch door way and be set up in a matter of hours. This tank is state of the art and a one of a kind. This unique collapsible design is what makes it ideal for pre-existng buildings.

Commercial solar hot water systems allow businesses to be eco-friendly and save money each month as a side benefit. It also gives them the edge on attracting more clientele. With so many choices for consumers to choose from, more and more consumers are looking at the "Green" factor when making their decisions. Although, quality and service is still a major deciding factor, eco-friendly/green is also playing a key role in consumers decisions. This decision making has become especially important for travelers, whether it is for vacations or for business. Green Hotels are becoming a high priority on travelers check lists.

Generally, speaking, a solar hot water system will reduce your utility bill from 25% to 85% depending if you are on LP Gas, Electric, Natural Gas or Fuel Oil.Your new hot water system will start saving you money the day it goes into operation.

Another benefit of a commercial solar hot water system is a reduction in your building temperature during the hot summer months when the A/C usage it at its peak. The solar panels placed on the roof are not only absorbing the sun for your hot water, they are also blocking the suns penetration into your building. This will have a direct effect on the inside heat of your building resulting in a drastic reduction in your A/C usage which in turn lowers your utility bill.
