How many years does the solar water heating system take to pay for itself?
27 Mar 2013

This depends on how many hours of sun your panels are exposed to annually, and other factors such as air temperature, dust on the glass etc.

On average, a solar water heating system will pay for itself after a 4-5 year period (a shorter period for larger installations, for example at hotels or swimming pools), after which it is all net gain apart from the minor yearly maintenance costs. Please ask us for detailed information about this.
