So I posted on my local City Data website regarding solar asking about a manufacture here in town. I didn't receive a single comment on the manufacture but I received many comments on how crappy solar was, how it won't extend your season at all, how it breaks constantly, leaks, etc. and that I should get a gas heater (I don't have a spa so I didn't put one in with my build).
Well the thing I like about solar is once I put it in other than a little extra energy running higher rpms it's paid for, unlike a gas heater that depending on your gas rate I imagine could run $3 - 4 an hour to run. My cost to install the two is practically the same.
All of my neighbors have solar, the two right next to me and the one next to them all swear by it, love it. Never have any issues, when they did the warranty replaced the panel etc. Their experience has been great. What gives?
Anyone have thoughts here? If you have them would you do it again?
