When we use words like "handyman", or "workmanship", it's not a question of gender but of quality. Anyone who demonstrates an attention to detail, a willingness to read and follow the manual, selects and uses the proper tools and has a commitment to quality work will complete a successful project.
Q: What is it like to install a Radiantec Solar Heat & Hot Water System?

A: Installing a solar heating system from Radiantec can be done by just about anyone with basic skills in carpentry, roofing, plumbing, copper pipe fitting and electrical work. These skills don't have to be at a high technical level- as long as you have a willingness to follow the manual. Previous experience with a solar heating installation is ideal.

Most building contractors and trade professionals will find installing a Radiantec solar heat and hot water system very straightforward, but it's also a great do-it-yourself project for everyone else.

All the right installation parts, guaranteed.

Installation packages from Radiantec save money and will help you get the job done more smoothly and easily - particularly for the do-it-yourselfer. We complete most of the work in our own shops under stringent quality-control conditions using precise tooling and custom-made machinery. This is less expensive than site work, and we pass the savings on to you. It also means less running around looking for components and having to substitute incorrect parts or sacrificing quality.

A note about using licensed professionals.

In many parts of the country you may be required to use a licensed professionals to complete some of the installation work, whether for code or zoning compliance or to qualify for certain subsidies and tax credits. For instance, installing a Radiantec solar heating system will involve connections to your potable water supply, so you may be required to hire a licensed plumber. Be sure to check with your local authorities before beginning work.
