Re: [hreg] Inquiry re Solar Heat Panel
- Try David Sawchak at Morningstar, I'm not sure what you mean by a passive heater, but David is the only active solar DHW and Pool heating contractor in the Houston area, 713 686 1762.----- Original Message -----From: Jonathan ClemensSent: Monday, March 05, 2001 6:12 AMSubject: [hreg] Inquiry re Solar Heat PanelHREG,I have had a few inquiries about passive solar water heaters and here is the latest one. I am asking the whole group - who designs and/or installs passive solar water heaters in the Houston area? Anyone with any information please respond. Thank you.Jonathan----- Original Message -----From: ZETTSTEIN@...To: hreg@...Sent: Sunday, March 04, 2001 7:34 PMSubject: (no subject)I recently moved to Kingwood from the DFW area (McKinney). There I had a
solar heat panel installed to heat my swimming pool. I have not been able to
find someone in this area that deals with solar panels for pools or hot water
heaters. Is there anyone in this area that you can put me in touch with?
The company that installed my system in McKinney is willing to send me the
necessary panels if I can find someone down here to install. He's also
willing to make the trek to Kingwood - but I would feel more comfortable
using someone here in the area. Please tell me that I am not at a dead end.

- I heard a speaker yesterday whose name shall be withheld. I don't think
he's on this list but if he is, it's okay. He was talking about energy
efficient homes. There were lots of questions going around and finally I
asked if he thought solar water heaters would be good and lo, he said
nobody wants them, and I said WHY? and he said, cost too much, not enough
folks to maintain them etc etc. I was really surprised. I mean, he was
promoting other things that take a little work and money and I figured
solar hot water would fit right in. I told him that there are whole
developments in Houston with solar hot water systems and the systems have
worked fine for at least 20 years, and I also told him that there are
several working solar hot water systems in my neighborhood and most
people who have them, like them. How many folks are coming along who are
trained to install and maintain solar hot water systems? Is there any
other plan other than the periodic SEI or other training for solar
applications which will see that enough good plumbers are licensed or
trained or whatever? Is there licensing for solar hot water folks? I
think lots of folks would like to have solar hot water. Of course,
there's a wait, we are finding out.
