Engineers, Architects & Developers

Having won a 2013 Intersolar North American Project Award for a San Francisco apartment building, Free Hot Water is an internationally recognized solar thermal design and engineering innovator.

From concept to completion, Free Hot Water offers multi-discipline engineering and design services for commercial, industrial, municipal, government, and residential solar hot water applications. Our staff includes mechanical engineers and drafters who are experienced in creating pre-engineered and custom designed solar thermal systems for specific water heating applications, including:

  • Apartment buildings
  • Condominiums
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Laundry facilities
  • Car washes
  • Federal, state, and municipal applications, such as prisons, military installations, other buildings that use large amounts of hot water
  • Process heat for breweries, wineries, food processing, and other industrial solar thermal applications

Regardless of the application, Free Hot Water engineers assess each project and design a solar thermal system that optimizes hot water production and flow, constructing an efficient design that dramatically reduces the site’s energy bills. We use state-of-the-art engineering software as well as proprietary tools to virtually “build” solar thermal systems to their final design. This process allows customers to review project details before actual construction takes place.

Free Hot Water is brand neutral. We work with both American and international brands of solar hot water collector manufacturers, solar storage tank manufacturers, and pump manufacturers. We incorporate the highest quality and best possible materials to match the specific application.
