Solar Thermal

Energy efficient hot water for your home or business

A solar thermal system uses solar panels to heat water (not to be confused with Solar PV Panels which are used to generate electricity). It works by harnessing the energy from the sun and converting it into heat, in conjunction with a boiler, collector or immersion heater to generate hot water. The hot water is stored for use later in a cylinder and can easily provide a large proportion of your home or business’s hot water directly from solar energy.

Here’s how a Solar Thermal system works for you

A solar thermal system uses the energy from the sun to heat up water to use in the home. They absorb heat from the sun through solar collectors, which is then transferred into the hot water system of your home or business.

The main source of heat generation is through roof mounted solar panels which are used in conjunction with a boiler, collector or immersion heater. The heated water or heat-transfer fluid then runs from the collectors to your hot water cylinder. This way a solar water heating system can provide your home with free heated water.

By using the unlimited resource of the sun, a solar thermal hot water system could reduce your annual bills by 10% or more, as well as allowing you to benefit financially from the government funded Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The benefits of solar thermal heating system

Installing solar thermal hot water heating requires minimal upheaval and can deliver considerable cost savings, making this type of renewable technology a practical and cost-effective option for new-builds and existing properties.

  • Produces up to 60% of a property’s annual hot water – as much as 100% in summer.
  • Suitable for every home, whether new build or retrofit.
  • Low-cost investment.
  • On-roof and in-roof solar panels available.
  • MCS approved for the Renewable Heat Incentive.
