Knowledgeable product support

Almost all of the big-box stores are offering items that are labeled “green” but often times the sales person has little or no knowledge of the product, how to use it or what makes it better than another product. Everything that we offer in our store not only have we asked the manufacturer what steps it has taken to make the product less toxic; but in addition we have tested it ourselves!

How do we select our products ?

  • When selecting which products we are going to carry we use the following criteria:
  • Performance – Does it perform as well as or better than similar products? We test all products before bringing them into EcoSimplista to sell to our customers.
  • Health – Is it healthier and safer for us and the environment than similar traditional products?
  • Cost – Is it a reasonably priced solution for our customers?
  • Use – Would we personally use it in our workplace or home? Only after we are satisfied that a product successfully meets all the above requirements do we offer the product to our customers.

Choosing a Solar Water Heating System

Broward Solar provides Solar Water Heaters, Solar Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps to the residents and businesses of South Florida

What are the key facts about Solar Water Heating Systems?

There are two types of solar water heating systems, active and passive, that pump hot water heated by the sun into your home.

  • Direct circulation systems: Pumps circulate household water through the collectors and into the home.
  • Integral collector-storage passive systems: Made of a storage tank, solar collection tank, and the pipes that run between them, these systems require cold water to be pumped into the solar collector in batches.

To size your solar water heating system determine the total collector area as well as the storage volume you’ll need to meet 90%–100% of your household’s hot water needs.

To properly maintain a solar water heating system check for scaling and corrosion.

While solar water heating systems tend to cost more to install than conventional water heating systems, they can usually save you money in the long run.

AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer

AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer is a premium quality, waterbased, flat finish universal primer
AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer is a premium quality, waterbased, flat finish universal primer specifically formulated to solve difficult application problems without the use of toxic and outgassing chemicals. Because it has an extremely tight and efficient polymer network, it is when properly applied particularly well suited for transitioning from existing oil based painted surfaces to waterbased coatings. It is when properly applied useful as a stain blocker for many of the knot holes, water soluble stains and oils, tannins and terpenes in wood which can “bleed through” to the surface upon the application of traditional waterbased primers. Like all AFM Safecoat paints, it is the least toxic product of its type, and contains no naphtha or other aromatic solvents, and no formaldehyde, ethylene glycol, ammonia, acetone, heavy metals, crystalline silica or other carcinogenic or hazardous materials. AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer is naturally low in odor, and unlike other paints contains no masking agents or fragrances to hide the smells of toxic chemicals.

Features:
– Unique molecular structure promotes strong penetration and mechanical adhesion
– Environmentally friendly, very low VOC content, the lowest toxicity for a product of its type
– Tight polymer network makes an excellent sealer
– Durable and high performance undercoating

Going Green in South Florida With Solar Hot Water!

Broward Solar provides Solar Water Heaters, Solar Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps to the residents and businesses of South FloridaBroward Solar provides Solar Water Heaters, Solar Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps to the residents and businesses of South Florida.

While you can certainly choose from any number of companies to heat your pool, home, hot water or provide you with service.  The team at Broward Solar have the unique experience to handle projects of any scope or complexity.  From residential to commercial, Broward Solar’s experienced staff have over a 100 years of combined solar experience.

Solar energy is free, and its supplies are unlimited. Using solar energy produces no air or water pollution. Households with an electric water heater consume about 6,400 KW per year for water heating. If we assume that the electricity is generated by a typical power plant with an efficiency of 30%, then the water heater generates about 8 tons of CO2.

The surprising result is that the CO2 produced by a water heater is almost double that produced by a modern automobile. * On average, a solar water heater in Florida can produce 90 – 95% of your hot water needs, reducing your carbon footprint over 10,000 pounds annually.  That is more than the average car, plus it saves the equivalent of 11.4 barrels of oil.

Have peace of mind because you’re dealing with a company driven more by after-the-sale technical and engineering concerns than by a simple desire to make the next sale. Specifically, you can expect:

  • Correct system sizing for your unique swimming comfort requirements, pool use and site factors
  • Realistic expectations of system performance
  • Correct plumbing installation and system hydraulics
  • The most advanced, safe and trouble-free pool heating and automation available today
  • Fully insured technicians using no subcontractors.

THE SOLAR WATER HEATING BENEFITS INCLUDE:

  • Reduces Dependence On Fossil Fuel and Foreign Oil
  • Reduces Co2 And Sulfur Dioxide Emissions
  • Qualifies For Federal Tax Credits
  • Qualifies For Many Utility Company Rebates
  • Protects From Future Rate Increases
  • Increases Property Value
  • Provides Hot Water During Power Outages

Our Solar Water Heating Services Include:

  • Solar Pool Heating: Get the most out of your pool investment with free solar energy.  Enjoy your pool 10-11 months a year!
  • Solar Hot Water Heating: Solar hot water systems can provide you with up to 95% of your hot water needs.  With Federal tax credits and state rebates too
  • Reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
  • Energy Efficient Heat Pump Pool Heaters: Not one type of pool heater is right for every situation.  Heat pumps will heat your pool for less than half the cost of propane gas.  Reduce your co2 emissions.
