Last of the pure solar hot water for this year.

Solar hot water heater

I may have to bite the bullet and turn on the backup tankless water heater. Our solar water heater has been on it’s own since April 10, and has done a spectacular job! We have had plenty of hot water all summer. The solar water heater will keep on working all winter, it just won’t provide all of the hot water. Even during the winter it brings the water temperature up to around 100 degrees so our Bosch tankless just has to bring it up another 20 degrees or so. I think the payback on this system will be within just 4-5 years. After that all it will cost us is a little gas for the backup. Our gas bill has been a 9th of what it was last year at this time. Well, I guess I better get back to cooking,
