Standard Hot Water Heaters (Residential)
Compare our Standard Hot Water Heater Kits to find the best kit for your house, cabin, beach house or mobile home. These easy-to-install and affordable kits can reduce costly water heating bills or take you completely off-grid.
If it regularly freezes in your area, we recommend purchasing a "Freeze Protected" Kit. These kits operate year-round, without needing to be drained when the temperature drops below 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Our SW, EZ, and Marine kits need to be drained during freezing temperatures. Damage from freezing may cause the panels to leak, and voids our 10 year leak warranty.
Find your location on the map below. Use the table to approximate the amount of panels you will need for optimal efficiency.
If your panels are more than 25 ft from your water heater(50 ft total run), we recommend adding an extra panel. Extra panels can always be added after your installation is complete.
