Solar Panels & Solar Heating

Solar hot water Heating is considered as "the ultimate way to achieve a large reduction in carbon emissions".

Thermasys believe that the UK should follow the Spanish model of installing solar hot water Heating and solar thermal technology in all newly built houses. Spain has adopted a blanket policy, which stipulates that all new homes should include solar hot water Heating solutions.

  • Domestic solar hot water Heating systems perform well in all parts of Britain although slightly better in southern areas compared with the north of England and Scotland.
  • Systems using selective surface flat panels perform as well as those using evacuated tubes.
  • Most systems perform as well now as they did when they were new.

If you are considering a Solar Panel Hot Water & Heating System and require more information please send us your details via our enquiry page or simply call us on 01142 561552. Thank you for taking the time to view our site.

Solar Panel Technology for Hot Water & Heating your home

For domestic solar hot water Heating there are four main components:

  • Solar panels or collectors - are fitted to your roof. They collect Heatfrom the sun's radiation.
  • A Heattransfer system - uses the collected Heatto Heatwater.
  • Hot water cylinder - stores the hot water that is Heated during the day and supplies it for use later.
  • Solar differential pump & controller - automatically controls the pump & system temperatures.

House builders are under increasing pressure to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, with ambitious government targets to make all homes zero carbon by 2016. However, the UK is currently lagging behind Europe when it comes to building energy efficient homes. Solar thermal technology and solar hot water Heating can complement an existing Heating and hot water system by providing up to 70% of a house's hot water requirements.

Solar water Heating can provide almost all of your hot water during the summer months and about 50% year round. The average domestic system reduces C0² by around 350kg - 400kg per year, depending on the fuel replaced.
