FAQ - Solar Water Heating Products

Below are some commonly asked questions. Feel free to contact us with any further questions you might have.

Q: How much money can I save using a solar water heater compared to a traditional electric tank water heater?

Check the energy guide of your current water heater. Many people spend more than $600 a year to heat water and the price is increasing every year. Solar water heating can be one of your smartest investments and not a significant one: you'll likely get your money back in less than 3 years and you will enjoy free hot water for the rest of your product's life.

In addition, you many qualify for a 30% federal tax credit for solar water heater installation as well as rebates from local utility companies for using a solar water heater.

Q: What is special about QDD Solar Water Heaters?

Our solar water heaters use 3rd generation technology which combines excellent safety, durability, and efficiency at a lower price than many 1st generation solar water heater systems. We also offer a 6yr warranty (with an available lifetime warranty) and can install your solar water heater for you or you can self-install your solar water heater using the provided instructions.

You don't need to worry about freezing issues. There are no moving parts, and the patented solar collector can produce hot water with less than 3 hours of exposure to sunlight. Patented insulation can guarantee you hot water for 72 hours without sunlight. The stainless inner tank is food grade quality, and the system has a built-in electric heating element. Both ground or roof mounting are applicable and our solar water heaters are maintenance free with a high ROI of 1 to 3 year pay back time.

Q: How long will it take to get my solar water heater?

We will ship your system in about 1 to 7 business days once we receive your complete payment. We ship everywhere in the continental USA!

Q: How long will my solar water heater last?

QDD solar water heaters are rated to last 20yrs, though your actual use may be much longer. There are no moving parts. Typically they will pay for themselves after 3yrs so this means you could expect to receive 17yrs worth of free heated water (and possibly much longer) - which is an excellent return on your investment .

Q: How do I install my solar water heater?

QDD Solar can recommend a certified contractor to install your solar water heater and this will also extend your warranty. You can also have a contractor or plumber of your choosing do it for you as well. If you wish to do it yourself, and you have no prior experience, you can use the included installation guide.

We have solar water heating systems designed for installation on the side of homes and buildings and rooftops.

Q: Can solar water heaters save money for used for commercial applications?

Yes, solar water heaters can be ideal for most buildings: hotels, motels, hospitals, restaurants, laundromats, office building, churches, schools, nursing homes, factories, farms, and state parks. They are also ideal where electricity is not readily available.

Q: I'm confused about what model or size of solar water heater to buy? How can I figure this out?

Please give us a call and we can help you determine your needs. We offer solar water heaters in 40 gallon, 50 gallon and 80 gallon sizes and these can be combined and even integrated to work with your existing water heater tank to provide large quantities of ready available heated water.
