What is Solar Thermal?


Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.

Solar Thermal is probably the single most practical and worthwhile renewable technology for most people in the UK. They integrate perfectly with Biomass as well as conventional heating systems.

The Benefits of Solar Thermal


  •   Hot water throughout the year: the system works all year round, though you'll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  •   Cut your bills: sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
  •   Cut your carbon footprint: solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
