Solar & Renewables
Solar water heating is regarded as one of the major alternative energy players for the future. It’s a sustainable energy source, will work for most homes and can provide your household with its required hot water for the majority of the year.
With recent sharp rises in energy prices and, we are told, still more to come, increasing numbers of people are turning to Solar power to take advantage of free energy from the Sun all year round. Even on cloudy days!
How does it work?
The system uses solar panels, referred to as collectors, which are fitted to the roof of your home. These solar panels adsorb solar energy from the sun during the day to heat water which is then stored in a hot water cylinder.
Highly efficient, completely controllable and low maintenance, a Solar water heating system is easiest to install if you already have a conventional ‘system’ or ‘regular’ type boiler and could provide most of your annual hot water from a clean, renewable source of energy.
Reduce your fuel bills:
Insummer months it is possible to obtain around 90% of a home's hot water needs from Solar energy. Even in winter, 30% can be achieved.* Solar energy is available even when there is no direct sunlight.
Clean energy, environmentally friendly:
On average, using Solar Thermal energy can save a household around 350-400kg of CO2 each year.* Great for homeowners wishing to reduce their carbon footprint.
You too could benefit from lower energy bills and reduce harmful emissions by utilising the free power of solar energy; now and for many years to come.
If you’d like to reduce the amount of fossil fuels that you depend on to heat the water in your home and, at the same time, significantly lower your carbon dioxide emissions, why not consider installing a Solar Thermal water heating system?
