Solar Water System

I am looking for help on a solar hot water system.  Most solar companies will not install them unless you want to buy pv panels.  I would like to locate the panels on a roof over the building but am not sure if is the best location.

Greg, I can't understand why someone would want to sell you PV panels if you want solar hot water. So I guess you should avoid them. The roof should be a last resort when it comes to installing solar. Temperature can hinder performance, even for hot water panels. Roofs also make maintenence difficult and costly. Orientation is fixed. Snow and debris can cause damage. Roof replacements costs can double.....

Re: Solar Water System

Bull@#$%, Ive been installing and servicing hot water panels for over twenty years! We have over 2800 hundred customers that are very well satified with there performance and low maintenance. Roof mount is very much the way to go. rarely do we have a leak in the roof do to solar panels, unless when one gets a new roof the roofing company doesnt call us to remove them and install them back on after the new roof is installed and they try to roof around them. The old roof is still left under the panels and leaks do appear then. Where are u located, we are in the Northern Va. area and if you have a family of 4 or more I highly recommend hot water solar. The more hot water u use the more it will save you. Most all of our systems have been working and saving customers money for over 20 years. Thats when the big tax break was and now the goverment has brung it back again this year for a 30% tax break and some states has followed with an additional 10% to 15% tax break. Let me know if you need more advice, you can email me at solartechmaxx @
