    When I consider adding Solar Thermal Water system, would I also keep the gas water heater(s) I already have. Would I replace them with smaller units?

  • Dan,

    If your gas units are older, it’s probably more effective to just get a solar storage tank with built-in gas backup and be done with them. If they’re newer, consider using the solar as a “pre-heat” for the existing tank(s).
