Like to linger in a hot shower? Stand under the pulse-jet guilt free with a solar hot water system. You can install solar panels on your roof that will work with your conventional water heater. The panels cost between $2,000 and $4,500, and they can reduce the need for conventional water heating by around two-thirds.
A solar water heater cuts around 12 percent off the average household’s monthly electric bill. Most solar systems use a conventional backup heater, so you’re never left with a cold shower.
