Solar Thermal Heating in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio
Solar energy is free and can be harvested effectively in climates like ours. With a solar system from Viessmann, with highly-efficient collectors and matching system components, even the smallest amount of solar radiation can be used effectively. Viessmann solar collectors are specifically designed for northern climates, and can produce enough solar energy to heat as much as 70% of the annual hot water requirements of an average family household.
During the summer months a high- performance solar system covers almost all the energy required to heat your domestic hot water, reducing your oil, gas or electricity consumption and making you less dependent on fossil fuels. In the transitional months, solar energy is generally best used to preheat domestic hot water.
Viessmann solar collectors can also be used to supplement space heating or pool heating applications.
Good for the environment
A solar system can make a real difference. Not just by reducing the energy bill, but by reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions as well. A solar system can lower the average carbon dioxide (CO2) production of a standard North American household by 3/4 of a tonne a year.*
Built for the future
Viessmann solar collectors are built on more than 30 years of experience. And like other Viessmann products, all Viessmann solar products are constructed using the highest-quality, corrosion- and UV-resistant materials, such as powder-coated aluminum, copper and stainless steel. Viessmann Vitosol collectors are performance tested in Europe, and in North America by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) and are designed to produce a consistently high thermal output for a period of more than 20 years.
A smart choice
An investment in a renewable energy system, like solar, not only reduces the day-to-day operating cost, but is also frequently subsidized by different levels of government. Both in the U.S. and Canada, an increasing number of incentive programs are offered by federal, state or provincial governments.
Viessmann solar collectors are OG100 certified and are eligible for many of these incentive programs. For more information on current incentive programs in your area, please contact your local Viessmann Sales Representative.
Viessmann Solar is committed to environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and green heating solutions. Their solar heating products are the result of more than 30 years of experience. More than 2 million Viessmann solar collectors have been installed in Germany alone. With a Viessmann solar system you are making an investment for the future. Not only because you are preserving valuable fossil fuels and reducing emissions, but also because Viessmann solar collectors, like all of their products, are highly efficient, long-lasting and of quality construction.
