Solar Thermal

Solar Thermal water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable. There are two types of solar water heating panels: evacuated tubes or flat plate collectors, which can be fixed on the roof tiles or integrated into the roof.

Benefits of a Solar Thermal System;

  • Hot water throughout the year: the system works all year round, though you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  • Cut your bills: sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial solar thermal installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
  • Cut your carbon footprint: solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Receive government payments with the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) providing a better return for householders living off the gas grid.
  • Future proofing against rising energy costs

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies among householders, communities and businesses through the provision of financial incentives.

The UK Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources.

Just as you would have your boiler (or other heating source) serviced we recommend that to maintain the health and performance of your solar thermal system, that you have a routine service every 3 years.
