Solar Hot Water Heaters

Why Choose Solar?

Using energy from the sun to heat hot water is both cost effective and environmentally friendly. The average home owner is spending approximately 30% of their electric bill heating hot water. SOLAR HOT WATER IS FREE. 

Solar Water reduces pollution and slows global warming by replacing fossil fuel power. (The single largest source of air pollution.) It also decreases our dependence on foreign oil.

When you invest in a solar hot water system it will pay for itself in approximately 2 to 4 years depending on the amount of hot water being used. (At today’s cost). 

Price increases and fuel shortages are eminent over the coming years. YOU ARE LOCKING YOUR FUTURE COST TO HEAT HOT WATER- FREE COST:
-The base price for an 80 gallon solar hot water system will be between $4,600 and $5,000.

“One of the most cost effective ways to include renewable technologies into a building is incorporating solar hot water” – US Department of Energy

“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power. I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.” Thomas Edison (1847-1931)


We recently decided to install a solar hot water heater at our home. We felt this option was cost effective and environmentally friendly. Several people recommended Emerald Plumbing to us. They arrived on time and gave us a detailed estimate. They completed the job on time in a neat and professional manner. The crew was very nice and informative. The solar water system works great with plenty of hot water.

We feel that we are doing our part for the environment and we are already seeing the savings on the electric bill.

It is very refreshing doing business with an honest professional company like Emerald Plumbing. We will be telling all of our friends and family about Emerald Plumbing.

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at Emerald Plumbing and commend them for a job well done on the installation of our solar water heater. From the first conversation, my husband and I knew that we were dealing with true professionals. Liam and Ian went to great lengths to explain the pros and cons of solar water heaters and to detail Emerald Plumbing’s expertise in installing the systems. A date was scheduled for the installation and the crew arrived on time and quickly and efficiently completed the project. Hugh and Aaron did a marvelous job and left the work area cleaner than they found it…they even repaired a broken faucet without being asked! We are very excited to have our new “green” water heater and look forward to working with Emerald Plumbing on future projects.

Yesterday one of your serviceman, Shawn, installed three new toilets in our home. My husband and I were so impressed by him. He was polite, efficient, business-like manner, and on time. He even cleaned up the areas he serviced.
We certainly will highly recommend Emerald Plumbing to all our family and friends. A real pleasure to do business with you.

I heard Jim Philips talk about his new solar hot water heater on his talk show on Real Radio. I had been contemplating going solar for environmental reasons. I called Emerald Plumbing who Jim spoke of very highly, and I can see why. Liam arrived on time, gave me a detailed estimate with no hidden charges. I was very impressed and scheduled to do the job. The crew arrived on time, and set about the task. It was a pleasure to watch professional tradesmen at work. The install looks and works great, he pipes in the attic are strapped neatly.  From start to finish the job was a pleasure. I’m looking forward to doing my bit for the planet. I’ve officially gone Emerald Green!


I’ve been a customer of Emerald Plumbing for 12 years now. When I decided to put in a solar hot water system, there was no choice. They gave me an estimate, answered all the questions I had, and completed the job in the same professional timely manner which I have come to expect from them. Once again, to all al Emerald, thanks you very much! It’s great to have a plumbing company you can trust.

As a single mother of three teenagers I had been looking for ways to keep my ever increasing costs down. I heard Jim Philips discuss his solar hot water system on his show “Real Radio’s Philips Phile” I called the show 1st time ever calling a radio station. Jim told me to call Emerald Plumbing, he gave them an A+ Gold Stamp of Approval and he was right. Liam gave me the estimate, explaining everything in detail. The job was completed without any disruption. The city inspector told me that it was a perfect install and Emerald was the best in town. I look forward to saving money and going my part in saving our planet. Thank Emerald, great job!
