BENEFITS OF SKYLINE®
SOLAR WATER HEATERS
The Skyline® collector is superior by design
From an aesthetic perspective, SolarRoofs.com outperforms the competition. Available in multiple Designer colors, our Skyline® systems add to the architectural beauty of a structure.
SolarRoofs.com collectors and systems come out ahead when measured by the installed cost per delivered BTU. The installed cost of a SolarRoofs.com system can be reduced by over $400.00 over conventional systems due to reduced installation costs. There is no chance of expensive and dangerous glass breakage due to vandalism, bad weather, thermal shock or accident.
When all things are considered, the SolarRoofs.com system has significant and compelling advantages. On the factory floor, on the roof, at your customers' faucet and when paying utility bills, the SolarRoofs.com DHW system is the best choice for dealers, builders, wholesalers, installers and homeowners.
Below are estimates for delivery and installation of one system for a typical dealer. Costs for conventional systems could be more if 3 strong people or a lift are not readily available for delivery. Completely burdened labor costs are estimated at $24.00 per hour.
A Do-It Yourself Solar System
Made For Easy Installation
Far less soldering and heavy lifting is required for SolarRoofs.com systems.. Technically, our systems can be installed by one person in most situations. SolarRoofs.com systems will not reach temperatures as high as conventional systems, making our systems much safer. A SolarRoofs.com system peaks out at about 300 F whereas conventional systems can get dangerously over 400 F and can burn glycol and pop off pressure valves much more easily. In all cases, the risk of injury is significantly higher for the conventional system even with three people.
In most cases, the conventional system will require a lift with an estimated daily rental of $150 plus the time to get and return it. Three people could be used to get the collector on a roof but would not meet NIOSH guidelines for lifting. The 38-pound SolarRoofs.com collector is within safe NIOSH limits in all situations for one person. Batch or thermosyphon systems may require expensive engineering and truss reinforcement adding greatly to the costs.
SolarRoofs.com is designed for safety and easy installation. The degree of difficulty for installing a SolarRoofs.com system is far less than a conventional system and the degree of safety is much greater.
While conventional systems unfortunately are widely regarded as unsightly, with SolarRoofs.com you have a much more architecturally attractive system. We can custom-design your collectors and system to match your roof color. Our 24’ long Skyline® design is a beautiful architectural feature. It leaves more room for a PV system and can have an optional roof-venting feature. SolarRoofs.com is the only mass-produced solar water heating system that can add architectural value to a structure.
For the Dealer, SolarRoofs.com is much easier to sell and much safer to install. These quality factors reduce the dealers' marketing costs, risk of expensive injury, downtime and Workman’s Compensation rates. Many solar PV and Pool dealers just won’t sell water heaters if they have to deal with unsightly, heavy and dangerous to install collectors. SolarRoofs.com systems have the vital installation, safety and appearance advantages needed to open the true mass market for solar water heating systems.
