SYSTEM SELECTION

attic_site_survey

Our process begins with a thorough solar thermal analysis to determine any and all solar water heating and/or cooling opportunities for your home or building. Solar thermal technology can be used to provide energy for domestic hot water, space heating and cooling, pools & spas, and industrial process water heating. We are dedicated to optimizing our systems as a whole, offering options and complete custom solar water heating and cooling solutions. Almost 70% of the energy used in the average American home is for space heating, water heating, and air conditioning, so solar thermal systems can make a huge impact. Our proposals will clearly illustrate each system’s design and estimated performance, and the detailed financial analysis includes all applicable costs and incentives available. We use state of the art metering techniques to determine the heating and cooling load in your water for your building and analyze the results to select the right systems for you.

DESIGN & ENGINEERING
bar

We use only LEED-certified mechanical engineers for all of our commercial solar thermal systems, both for retrofit projects and new construction. Structural engineers are used to determine weight load and wind load calculations when performing the site analyses. Integrating with the existing water heating and/orcooling systems and optimizing the entire system’s performance requires expert design and engineering, and it is our priority that every system is designed properly and efficiently. We also work closely with Certified Energy Managers to help us develop our solar thermal projects.

SOLAR INSTALLER NETWORK
bar

Our network of experienced and qualified solar installers will provide top-notch installation services to get our sola waterr system on your roof. We use only CSLB licensed A, B, C-4, C-36, and C-46 contractors for our installations. We require that all of our installers be registered with the California Energy Commission and with the US Federal Government’s Central Contractor Registration, to enable you to receive any and all incentives for your system. We also require that all of our installers attend all necessary manufacturers’ training for each system component and balance of system components so that all product warranties are honored. Our installers also have a broad range of specialties, while one company may be more experienced in residential systems; another has over a decade experience in commercial plumbing and boiler systems.

SYSTEM MONITORING
bar

Once the system is installed and operational, we make sure that all post-installation system monitoring options are explored. We will remotely monitor the system temperatures and pressures, as well as performance for the life of the system. If we discover any problem that would indicate a system malfunction, we will notify you and the original installer right away to take care of the problem in a timely manner. The end user will also have the ability to view, track, and quantify system performance either remotely or at the location using our custom-designed monitoring systems.
