Solar Thermal Heating Systems

Solar thermal technology uses the sun’s energy, rather than fossil fuels, to generate low cost, environmentally friendly thermal energy which can provide the majority of your domestic hot water requirements. Solar thermal insulation consists of three main components, solar roof panels, a heat-transfer system and a hot water storage cylinder.

A solar thermal panel is installed on the roof of the building. Inside the panel, a non-toxic freeze proof solar fluid is heated by the sun then pumped through a pipe coiling inside your hot water tank. This then heats up the water in the tank and the fluid flows back up to the panels and the process begins again. The fluid is never in contact with the water.

You have probably seen one of your neighbours or family or friends who have taken advantage of this sustainable energy. There is good reason for this. Solar thermal technology provides homeowners with multiple benefits for years to come. These include:

  • Sun is free, once you have Solar thermal energy installed, your energy bills will decrease.
  • Considering they can provide a large amount of your household’s hot water, savings can be made on your energy bills immediately.
  • Government funding is available through the Renewable Heat Premium Payment and the Renewable Heat Incentive to help with the purchase of the solar panel system.
  • Potential income through the UK government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.
  • One of our Rhino surveyors will make the process stress free and assess your property and provide you with our expert knowledge.
  • The energy is sustainable and renewable, cutting your carbon footprint.
  • The sun is a reliable source of energy so this type of heating will provide you with energy independence for years since it cannot be bought or monopolized, so you are not as reliable on energy companies.
