We are able to supply, fit, service and repair solar thermal heating systems for homes and businesses.
Solar Thermal is a simple and cost-effective way of heating your water, and will typically convert around half of the solar energy falling on the solar collectors into heated water. The best location for a flat solar collector is on a sloping roof, preferably facing south, but east/west systems work well.
The solar collector is connected to your hot water tank by a flow and return pipe, and the glycol (antifreeze), is circulated around this system by a small electric pump controlled by a pump station. This glycol is heated by passing through the solar collectors and in turn passes through a coil in your hot water tank, heating the water.
Heat Pump Hot Water
When you think of renewable energy for hot water the first thought is that you need solar panels and a collector tank. Another option and the only hot water system we recommend uses heat pump technology to heat the water. Heat pump hot water is the most energy efficient method to heat your hot water therefore reducing the amount of renewable energy used for your household hot water needs.
How does it work?
The Hot Water Heat Pump System absorbs heat from the air and transfers it to heat water, in a way that saves energy, saves money and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It is a highly energy efficient replacement for your traditional electric hot water system.
Benefits to you
The system leads industry standards for quality and performance.
- It uses only 22% of the energy required by an electric hot water system
- Can save you up to 78% of your conventional electric hot water costs
- Super quiet system
- Doesn’t require solar panels nor reliant on sunlight to operate
We recommend you have your Solar Thermal system serviced annually to ensure the correct operation of safety measures (over pressure and temperature), test the pressurisation of the expansation vessel, check the solar controller for any faults and ensure the system is working to its full potential.
Every 3 years a fluid change will be required during the service.
