If you’re in the market for a new hot water heater, consider the long-term benefits of installing a solar hot water heating system to your home.

The first and foremost benefit of solar energy is that it’s free no matter how much you use, since you’re using the sun’s energy to heat the water. According to Natural Resources Canada, an Energy Star® certified solar water heater uses on average up to 60 per cent less energy than standard hot water models. Saving energy not only saves you money, but it’s also good for the environment, as emissions are reduced by 50 per cent, decreasing your carbon footprint by half.

While it’s true that the initial cost of a solar water heater is considerably more than that of a gas or an electric hot water heater, they also have a longer life expectancy. These benefits also translate into increasing the value of your home when it comes time to sell, so you could be reimbursed completely for whatever you paid for the solar system.

There are different solar domestic hot water (SDHW) systems available in Canada, and due to our harsh climate it’s important you choose one that will not freeze and that can provide hot water heating throughout the year. The friendly and experienced professionals at Kingspoint Small Engine will be able to help you select the right one.

Kingspoint Small Engine, located at 190 Bovaird Drive West, Unit 16, in Brampton, offers free parking and is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
