Are Solar Heaters Worth it?
Due to the technology involved, parts, and expertise needed, installing a solar water heater has the highest initial cost of all types of water heaters. However, it should be noted that they offer substantial energy cost-savings in the long run. Whether installing a solar water heater is worth it to you will depend on your initial budget, overall concern with the environment, and desire to use clean energy to operate your home.
Do Solar Water Heaters Work at Night?
Yes, they do. A solar water heater uses insulated tanks to store your water. The heater utilizes solar energy to heat the water and the insulation on the tanks keeps it hot all night. Furthermore, most solar energy water heaters use some form of back-up energy in the case of consecutive cloudy days.

Your choice of solar water heater will largely depend on your needs as well as your budget. There is not one specific brand or type that is better than all of the rest.

How Much Does it Cost for a Solar Water Heater?

Furthermore, you will save hundreds of dollars on your energy bills each year. Some experts posit that over time, a solar water heater may be the cheapest option.
