The roof is on fire

So, my boss and Environmental Heating & Air owner Chris Montana, has decided to find out first-hand how well some of the new solar products we have here at Environmental work by installing some solar panels and a hot water heater on the roof of his house.  He asked yours truly to help out and I was excited because I wanted to see myself how this whole solar installation process goes down.  Well, within just a couple of hours of starting we already had the manifold and cyclonic vacuum tubes installed, no problem!

Installing these solar products has given us the chance to be able to better describe the processes and the ins and outs of the installation process.  For example, when installing these solar products on your roof you have to be very thorough with sealing any and all screw holes made on the roof.  This is actually the most important thing to remember, if you don't do a good thorough sealing job you can end up opening a whole different can of worms with leaks in your roof which will obviously cause severe water damage if not immediately recognized and corrected.  Bottom line is that this whole process is fairly easy and inexpensive and it will end up saving you a ton of money in the long run, not to mention this kind of stuff is the future!  The entire hvac industry is migrating towards alternative energy so the sooner you start the better off you will be!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. It looks great! I am excited to hear about how much savings he will have over the course of this upcoming winter!

  2. It is addictive plus the cooler weather makes the panels kick. Solar energy quiet clean. I am very happy I did this. 4 year payback
