Answer: "Assuming that a solar specialist provides routine maintenance every three to five years, you can expect this type of water heater to run for 15 or 20 years. With a solar hot water system of any kind, there are a number of inspection and upkeep tasks that homeowners can do themselves: Regularly clean dusty or soiled collectors Monitor the connections between a storage tank and its piping Look for damaged insulation covering pipes, ducts, and wiring Check the tightness of all nuts and bolts responsible for securing the collectors in place In an active system, verify that the pumps are operating properly There have never been more types of water heaters for a homeowner to consider. But if you reflect on your needs, determine how much you wish to spend, and weigh your level of commitment to energy efficiency, you should have no trouble choosing the right model for your home and family.
