Project Description

Current solar water heaters are too expensive and it takes a long period of use to make them financially sensible, therefore current solar water heater designs are financially impractical over a short period of use. In the U.S. a high startup cost combined with a lack of knowledge about solar water heaters has contributed to low usage. Solar water heaters are a viable way of reducing energy consumption as well as reducing a household’s carbon footprint. Solar energy is abundant and free which makes it the best option for a low cost energy source. Many factors must be considered when looking to reduce cost and improve or maintain efficiency of solar water heaters.
