Pros + Cons of Heat Pump vs Solar Hot Water Systems

Since youโ€™re here, youโ€™re clearly wants a water heating system that will help you minimize your electricity bills and overall optimize your hot water supply.

Solar water heaters function by producing energy and heat through the use of solar energy that is collected by solar cells installed on the roof of a building, whether residential or commercial. While these systems are generally thought of as highly efficient, if it doesnโ€™t have a back-up, it wonโ€™t last long, if the Sun gets hidden by clouds for a long period.


Heat pumpsโ€™ heating mechanism works by absorbing energy from its environment, which is then transmitted to the water stored in the tank. Heat pumps primarily run on electricity and donโ€™t need solar panels installed on oneโ€™s roof. They are somewhat energy-efficient and cost-effective.
