Traditional water heaters utilize fossil fuels to keep a reservoir of water continually hot and ready for use in your home. Solar water heating systems harness the renewable and free energy of the sun to transfer heat to your water heater, eliminating much of the need to use fossil fuels. These innovative water heating systems can cut your utility costs immediately and save you money in the long term as well.
Installing a solar hot water heating system offers you immediate savings on your utility bills. When solar energy is available, your water heater will utilize this free energy source to heat water for your home. Only when there is not enough solar energy will your water heater switch over to the use of electricity or gas. This heating method can reduce the cost of heating your home’s water by 85%. If your current water heater is a gas-powered system, you can expect to save $240 annually. Solar water heating systems offer additional savings if your current water heater uses electricity—you can expect savings of up to $600 per year.
Solar water heaters offer long-term benefits as well. These heating systems are extremely durable and robust; solar water heaters will last for 20 years or more without requiring replacement. This is much longer than the lifetime of most standard water heating systems, meaning you will save money by putting off replacement of the unit and getting more use out of your current system. Furthermore, your annual energy savings will add up over this 20-year lifetime. Your hot water heating system can save you $5,200- $10,000 over the course of two decades.

Renewable energy is energy that is replenished naturally over time. While many traditional sources of energy, such as gas and oil, are not considered renewable resources, sunlight is a free and continuous source of power. Installing solar electric panels, solar lights, or a solar water heater in your Florida home offers you numerous benefits, ranging from immediate savings on your utility bills to the long-term knowledge that you are making a difference in the world.
Lower Utility Bills
Solar electric systems, solar lights, and other solar products harness the free energy of the sun, lowering your utility costs drastically to save you money. Solar water heaters can reduce your water heating bill by up to 85%, saving you up to $10,000 over the lifetime of the appliance. Solar electric systems can completely eliminate your electric bill, saving you $100’s of thousands on energy costs over the course of 20 years.
Lower Carbon Footprint
The generation of power through the use of fossil fuels creates carbon dioxide, which negatively impacts the environment. Using renewable solar energy in your home reduces the amount of fossil fuels you consume, thus reducing the amount of pollution generated to power your home. Switching to solar products can reduce your home’s associated carbon emissions by the equivalent of removing 22 or more cars from the road each year!
Installing a qualifying solar water heater or electric panels can earn you a residential tax credit from the Federal Government of 30% of the initial cost. You can save $2,500 or more when you install a solar water heating system. Solar attic fans also qualify for a tax credit of 30% of the cost of the product.
You can learn more about the benefits of switching to solar by calling Solar Lights & More of Ocala at (352) 553-4458. We have been installing top-quality solar products since 1996. Check out our blog to learn more about renewable energy.

Solar lighting provides endless, free, and even lighting throughout your home. Installing Solar Tubular Skylights will imbue your home with a feeling of warmth and welcome while saving you money on your lighting bills. Keep reading to discover how solar lighting works to bring natural and renewable light to your Florida home.
The Anatomy of Solar Tubular Lights
Solar Tubular Skylights differ from traditional skylights in many ways. At the top of your Solar Tubular Skylight is an acrylic dome designed to capture sunlight from every angle, regardless of the sun’s position in the sky. As sunlight enters the skylight’s tube, it is reflected many times off the inner surface of the tube, enhancing the quality of the light. Finally, the light enters your home through an arced prismatic light fixture that distributes the sunlight evenly to eliminate hotspots. Additionally, Solar Tubular Skylights are designed to block out harmful UV rays from the sun, protecting your family and your belongings while providing the light you need throughout the day.
The Benefits of Solar Tubular Lights
There are many benefits you will enjoy when you choose to install Solar Tubular Skylights in your home. Because these unique skylights block out UV rays and minimize solar heating, you won’t need to worry about unnecessary radiation, color fading, or unwanted heating. The design of Solar Tubular Skylights allows them to capture light at all times of day, rather than when the sun is directly over the dome. This provides consistent lighting for your needs throughout the day, further reducing your dependence on electricity. Depending upon the model you choose, you can enjoy up to 1,450 watts of light free from the sun. Solar Tubular Skylights are also available with accessories such as electric light fixtures and dimmer switches for your convenience.
