How Does It Work?
A solar hot water system utilizes the natural energy of the sun to significantly reduce your monthly utility bill for heating hot water. The system simply ties in to your conventional electric or gas water heater. Then the solar heat pre-warms the water, resulting in substantial energy savings. You can save up to 50% on your hot water energy bills!
We offer a full line of solar hot water and hydronic heating products for use in both residential and commercial applications. From a small residential application to a commercial restaurant system we can match the right system for your home, business and budget.
Yes! The Apricus system available at Maitz Home Services is perfectly matched for year-round service in our demanding Pennsylvania climate.

What Savings Can Solar Hot Water Give You?
People who want to ‘go green’ and make their homes more energy efficient can benefit from tapping into the sun’s energy to heat their water instead of relying on electricity. However, many people are surprised to find out that installing a solar hot water heater is quite a bit more expensive than a standard electric or gas unit.
But hold on. Don’t let the price scare you off, because while a solar hot water system installation is more expensive to install, it’s much cheaper to run year over year. And you’ll get back your investment and more in what you save on your energy bill.
According to the US Department of Energy, more than 40% of your home’s energy bill is dedicated to heating expenses. So, when you opt for a solar water heater, you’re taking a significant chunk off what you’re paying your utility company every month.
Also consider that when you choose to install a solar hot water heater, your state government may offer rebates and incentives, which can make the installation price a little cheaper. Also, you may also get tax breaks for going green too.
Lastly, don’t forget that reducing your carbon footprint, and relying less on fossil fuel energy, cuts down on your emissions and makes the environment that much cleaner.
