Business Information By Mast Directory: A Guide to Solar Water Heater Business

If you want to add solar hot water heating to your plumbing service, you can find the right type and size of system for commercial and residential customers. But, regardless of the particulars, customers can count on cutting their water heating bill in half. And, by using the sun for solar hot water heating, they can help the environment by reducing the use of fossil fuels. Those are great sales incentives!

If you want to start a solar water heater retail or wholesale business you must first know about the field in details. You must have a thorough knowledge on the solar water heater panels and most importantly you must know how to install the solar water heater panels at homes and other buildings. You can also hire technicians to do that bit for you. Plumbing technicians having knowledge of installing solar water heater panels can be employed as they can efficiently and safely install such solar water heating panels at the home of your shopping customer.

Since you are planning to start off with a solar water heater business you must have little knowledge about how the solar water heaters work and solar water heaters are installed. Solar heating systems are generally composed of solar thermal collectors, a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to its point of usage. The system may use electricity for pumping the fluid, and have a reservoir or tank for heat storage and subsequent use. The systems may be used to heat water for a wide variety of uses, including home, business and industrial uses. Heating swimming pools, under floor heating or energy input for space heating or cooling are more specific examples.

In order to heat water using solar energy, a collector is fastened to the roof of a building, or on a wall facing the sun. In some cases, the collector may be free-standing. The working fluid is either pumped (active system) or driven by natural convection (passive system) through it. The collector could be made of a simple glass topped insulated box with a flat solar absorber made of sheet metal attached to copper pipes and painted black, or a set of metal tubes surrounded by an evacuated (near vacuum) glass cylinder. In some cases, before the solar energy is absorbed, a parabolic mirror is used to concentrate sunlight on the tube. Some systems are capable of converting light to heat and therefore are not as reliant on outside temperature. A simple water heating system would pump cold water out to a collector to be heated, the heated water flows back to a collection tank. This type of collector can provide enough hot water for an entire family. You can take orders for various buildings, either residential apartments or official buildings to install solar water heaters. Since the field of solar water heaters is pretty new, you won’t find retail customers looking for it in regular shopping stores. Hence opening up a retail shopping outlet might not be as beneficial as other alternative such as on contract or through online shopping system. If you already have a business in supplying plumbing needs to your retail shopping customers you can extend your plumbing business by including solar water heating panels in your business.

Best way is open an online web site dealing with your plumbing supplies business online. Even if you are starting only with solar water heater business you can do that very easily by starting a web portal online. You should mention your contact information on your site so that any customer shopping for it online gets a way to place his / her order. You can also make them order online. Once orders have been made you can go with your plumbing technicians to install the solar water heating panels at your shopping customer’s home. You can also deliver the essential equipments and have contacts with the local plumbing services provider to do the installation for you.
