BENEFITS OF HITZE SOLAR WATER HEATER

Windvoltz provides one of the best solar water heater in Trivandrum, Kerala.While a solar water heater won’t directly reduce your water consumption, it does carry with it many benefits. Here are just a few;

1. Fighting Climate Change

  • Water heating accounts for 17 percent of a typical home’s energy use. Many Indian homes heat water with electricity / natural gas / other fossil fuels. The electricity usage will be higher for heaters and natural gas / other fossil fuels. The electricity usage will be heigher for heaters and natural gas / other fossil fuels create many tons of carbon going into the atmosphere. Switching to solar hot water is a great way to reduce electricity charges/ carbon and other greenhouse emissions and protect our climate.

2. Protecting Air Quality

  • Many additional homes use electricity to heat their water. Over 75% of Indian electric power comes from burning coal (Source- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_sector_in_India ). Particulates and other byproducts of burning coal pollute our air and contribute to a number of negative environmental and health effects. When you heat with solar hot water, you become a part of the solution to these public health problems.

3. Protecting Water Quality

  • Carbon and particulates aren’t the only byproducts of burning fossil fuel. The Natural Resources Defense Council has identified power plants as the primary source of mercury and other toxic heavy metals being released into the environment each year. These substances are a major threat to the health of our rivers, streams and lakes — and to human health as well. Solar water heating is one practical step we can take to put a stop to mercury contamination of our watersheds.

4. Monthly Savings

  • A solar water heater can provide up to 80 percent of your hot water needs, even in temperate climates. This translates to major utility bill savings, month after month. In fact, a solar hot water system typically pays for itself in just four to eight years, and can be expected to last for 40 years or more. That’s a lot of free energy, and a lot of savings.

5. Increased Home Value

  • Studies show that homes with solar sell faster and at higher prices than those without. Thus, adding solar hot water to your home is an investment that will pay back whether you stay or sell.
