    Customer Testimonials:

    Dear Adroit Solar,
    Please pass on to Ron, Eric and Jim our complements and thanks for doing such an excellent installation of our Vaillant Solar Water Heating System. Both Ron and Eric did terrific jobs to get our system installed professionally in a very tight space. The communications was excellent and Ron stayed late to get our hot water back on by the end of day 2, as we requested. Ron also provided extra services by painting the white pipes so they matched the roof. Eric sniffed out a propane leak at the tank regulator that we had fixed and would not have known about had he not discovered it.We could not have asked for a better installation team. They are great, and we are making hot water and lots of it!

    Dear Adroit Solar:
    It’s been over 6 weeks since we started using our Vaillant Solar Water Heating system. I wanted to let you know how very pleased we are with how well the system is performing. Totally trouble free, we get hot water within seconds throughout the house. It’s phenomenal.

    We wanted to replace two 75 gallon water heaters with solar. We also wanted hot water within seconds at all points of our 6,200 square foot home, inluding a master bedroom upstairs. Because of the distance involved, getting hot water without delay at all bathrooms, kitchen, etc proved to be a challenge to all. We interviewed four solar energy companies. All, except for Adroit solar, proposed two separate independent systems to accommodate our request.

    Adroit Solar’s mechanical engineers designed and implemented an efffective system that also looks beautiful on our roof. Your willingness to work with us and the Rancho Santa Fe Art Jury to get our project approved is also very much appreciated. All this for half the cost the other companies proposed. In summary, the whole process from our initial interview, to the installation and the final certification inspection performed by Adroit solar engineers and Vaillant inspectors has been seamless and trouble free.
