Solar Heating Service

Solar heating systems work by collecting heat energy from the sun and using it to warm water which is stored in a hot water cylinder. A boiler or immersion heater can be used to heat the water further so it reaches the temperature set by the cylinder's thermostat or to provide hot water on cloudy days.

Solar heating systems can:

  • Help to reduce your carbon footprint
  • Provide around 30% of your hot water needs
  • Help to reduce your energy bills

There are two types of Solar heating systems available:

  • Flat Plate Collectors: water is fed through pipes within a sheet of metal painted black. The sheet metal absorbs the suns energy which is then transferred to the water within the pipes, the heated water is then pumped into a hot water tank.
  • Evacuated tube collectors: collect sunlight energy in vacuum-sealed tubes which are highly insulated. The heat generated is pumped into pipes inside a hot water tank.

Most solar heating systems are generally for domestic use, however, there are some systems on the market that are available for commercial use. Ideally they need to be mounted to a south-facing wall or roof that receives direct sunlight for most of the day. Modern conventional boiler and hot water cylinder systems are usually compatible with solar water heating.

Our solar heating installation service includes:

  • a site survey to confirm whether integration into an existing boiler and hot water system is possible
  • upgrading an existing boiler and/or hot water system for integration with a solar heating system
  • advise on the most suitable solar heating system for your project
  • supply and installation
  • project management from start to finish

Reasons to install solar:

  • Smart investment
  • Save energy & pounds
  • Future energy independance
  • Clean safe energy
  • Cheap hot water on overcast days

All our works are guaranteed.
