Going Green in South Florida With Solar Hot Water!

Broward Solar provides Solar Water Heaters, Solar Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps to the residents and businesses of South FloridaBroward Solar provides Solar Water Heaters, Solar Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps to the residents and businesses of South Florida.

While you can certainly choose from any number of companies to heat your pool, home, hot water or provide you with service.  The team at Broward Solar have the unique experience to handle projects of any scope or complexity.  From residential to commercial, Broward Solar’s experienced staff have over a 100 years of combined solar experience.

Solar energy is free, and its supplies are unlimited. Using solar energy produces no air or water pollution. Households with an electric water heater consume about 6,400 KW per year for water heating. If we assume that the electricity is generated by a typical power plant with an efficiency of 30%, then the water heater generates about 8 tons of CO2.

The surprising result is that the CO2 produced by a water heater is almost double that produced by a modern automobile. * On average, a solar water heater in Florida can produce 90 – 95% of your hot water needs, reducing your carbon footprint over 10,000 pounds annually.  That is more than the average car, plus it saves the equivalent of 11.4 barrels of oil.

Have peace of mind because you’re dealing with a company driven more by after-the-sale technical and engineering concerns than by a simple desire to make the next sale. Specifically, you can expect:

  • Correct system sizing for your unique swimming comfort requirements, pool use and site factors
  • Realistic expectations of system performance
