Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar thermal as its known offers great savings over the spring/summer/autumn months, enabling your boiler to be switched off for a lot longer than it normally would, hence saving you on gas or electric bills. Throughout these months you are getting free hot water, powered by the sun. With the new Renewable Heating Incentives (RHI) produced by the government it can also earn you money over time to vastly reduce your payback time.







The solar panels require no power themselves; there is simply a small pumping station to pump the solar fluid around the panels. The hot water temperatures achieved are far superior to other green energies, temperatures can reach around 70 Celsius on very hot days, and this is why it is essential we fit a special water mixing valve to make sure you or your children do not get scalded. We set the water temperature at the hot taps around 55 Celsius. The only drawback is the solar system is inefficient during the winter months, because of very little sun over this period, although your boiler would be on anyway powering your central heating.
