Considering the energy savings once the system is installed, the initial cost is always recaptured when the home sells. According to recent studies, solar thermal systems save more energy than PV Systems, which translates to solar thermal systems can increase your home value more than PV Systems.

Examples of such solar thermal systems are offered by SunMaxx Solar Inc., featuring some of the most efficient solar thermal systems in the entire industry.
