I am in the process of purchasing a new home and was wondering what the approximate costs of converting the existing oil hot water heating system to a solar system. The oil also heats my hot water, so I would appreciate any info on converting my hot water system too.. I live in eastern Pennsylvania, and the house is about 1500 sq feet. I have a south facing roof as well.

Any info would be appreciated, just looking for some ballpark prices! thanks!

Cost varies considerably between doing some of the work yourself to having someone install it for you.

A lot also depends on whether or not you are actually have a 2 pipe hot water system, a single pipe steam system. If you are planning on doing some serious landscaping, you will have better luck with a geothermal system. They will vary widely on cost depending on a number of factors, but expect anywhere from around 20,000 to 35 thousand as a ball park for geothermal, based on numbers for someone I know who installed one. You still need a back up heat source, but less need for back up heat than you would with a soar heat system. Solar heat you should plan for a backup system. The other advantage with geothermal is you can use it for cooling in summer as well. A lot of money to be sure, but you can expect such a system to likely pay for itself in about 10 years. An installer in your area can give you better numbers.

Using the geothermal as only a rough guide, you should expect a hot water solar system to run from about 25,000 to 40,000 as a ball park estimate providing your roof is adequate for the panels and need no extra construction for support. This sounds like a lot of money, but the reality is your heating bills will be much less.

If you do it yourself, you can save a lot of money, but make sure to invest in the code books to make sure your work meets national codes, and double check with your local unit of government to see if they have additional code requirements.
