Solar Thermal Services
How Solar Thermal Works
Solar thermal systems use solar collectors to absorb sunlight and convert it into heat, which is then used to heat water for domestic use. This provides 30-60% of a household’s annual hot water demand. Solar thermal works even on cold sunny winter days and pairs well with condensing boilers.
On very sunny summer days, solar thermal can provide a full 100% of hot water demands. Well-designed solar thermal systems with insulated storage cylinders minimise dips thanks to retained heat. We survey your usage and architectural factors to design the optimal system.
