Solar hot water heating

SOLAR Hot Water Heating
Solar Hot Water, turning the suns solar energy into hot water 

This is a huge growth area and is the direction we are all going to have to move towards. Over the next ten years you can expect to see solar heating and other ‘Renewable’ technologies boom. Do you want free hot water and to save on gas bills? Then this is the way for you! Using solar panels this system produces most of your hot water via the sun, subsequently- free hot water, all year! Works even on over-cast days, as a back-up extra hot water can be provided via the boiler. In winter your heating is provided via the boiler.

In addition to the Green low-carbon credentials there is a simple fact – we are running out of gas and coal! As these supplies diminish your fuel bill is going to rise and rise. You would give yourself a huge saving by using solar panels to heat your hot water. Also, having solar water heating in your home is an investment on and in your home which will not depreciate in value.

Why have a Solar Hot water System? 

Every home spends on average 25% of its total energy bills on water heating. With Solar water heating installed you can provide up to 70% of your water heating FREE each year. In summer your Solar System should provide virtually ALL your hot water- free of charge! In the middle of winter, because of the short daylight hours available, it will still make a useful contribution of at least 25% of your water heating energy.

Benefits of Solar Hot water 

  • Hot water throughout the year: Your solar water heating system will work all year round, (though you may need to ‘top-up’ the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months)
  • Cut your bills: Daylight is free, gas and electricity are not!
  • Soften the blow of Fuel rises: This system will provide you with up to 70% of your hot water free. It works all year round. Gas prices will rise, a large percentage of heating your hot water will remain free, and this can save you up to £200 per year on your gas bill.
  • The sun will provide us with an unlimited source of energy for the next 5 billion years!
  • Cut your carbon footprint: Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants
  • A long term investment: The saving on reduced energy bills will take a number of years to offset the capital cost of the solar hot water heating investment. Therefore, solar hot water is a long term investment and solar hot water panels must have both exceptional longevity and reliability in order to achieve the best return on investment. We will work with manufacturers to ensure you are provided with the best quality panels with longest possible warranty
