Solar Water Heating: Book Review

solar_water_heating.jpgSolar Water Heating is the first book I’ve seen that focuses solely on solar water heating. It’s a technique that’s been practiced since ancient times, but until now there’s been strangely few resources on the topic for a North American audience. The author, Bob Ramlow, examines state-of-the-art solar heating systems. He covers not only solar water heaters, but also solar water and space house heating systems and solar pool heating systems, including their advantages and disadvantages. Since people often get turned off by the up-front cost, the book focuses especially on the financial aspects of solar water or space heating systems, and shows that such systems can save significant costs in the long run.

It’s available from Amazon for $16.47.

  1. No matter where you live, Solar pool heating systems pay for themselves fast in more ways than one. If your paying to heat your pool with electric or gas now then, when you put a solar system on you will no longer pay for heat.

  2. Solar water heating by solar collectors is still far the most effective method of harnessing solar power.

  3. Does it say where he is doing this at? I cannot imagine me being able to do this in Michigan year round…..
