Solar Thermal

What are Solar Thermal Systems?

Solar Thermal systems, utilize the suns energy to heat water to be used for hot water and central heating throughout the house. Energy used for heating is by far the biggest percentage of the average UK household, meaning it also holds the biggest opportunity for cost saving and carbon footprint reduction. Solar thermal technology is well established, tried and tested, and has seen vast system and manufacturing developments making them even more cost effective and beneficial.

Each panel contains a number of cells or tubes, within which is an absorber that conducts the suns energy and passes this energy in the form of heat onto the water that is piped through the panel. The hot water that leaves the panels then flows back to the storage tank to be either re-circulated through the system again or into the houses heating loop for either or both hot water or space heating.
