Installation

After deciding that you want to take advantage of solar domestic hot water, there are several options available to complete the installation.

    Your Plumbing and Heating Contractor:    If there is a reliable contractor you usually hire for your plumbing needs, that contractor could be your first choice to install your solar hot water equipment.  Many plumbing and heating contractors have training and experience with solar installations.  There are only a few differences between installing a conventional water heater and installing solar hot water.  If necessary, the owner of Alpine Solar can help your contractor through these differences.

    A Solar Contractor:  The “Resources” page of this website lists several contractors who would like to bid on your job.  If there are none listed in your area you may contact Alpine Solar to see if there are any additions not yet posted to the web page.  

    Do It Yourself:  Using the extensive installation manual found on this website, many homeowners will be able to complete the installation.  You can contact Alpine Solar with your installation questions and request for technical assistance.

    Co-operative Installation Group:  Contact Alpine Solar if you would like to be part of a network of sustainability minded people helping each other with their equipment installation.  There is space on this page for your first name, town, and email address or phone number.  If you prefer, your contact information can be kept off the web, and given only to those who inquire.
