Reduce your heating bills with solar heating & hot water panels...
Solar thermal panels absorb the heat from the sun and uses it to heat up water for use in the home.
Solar Panels on your roof absorb heat from the sun
The water inside the panels will then heat up
The hot water is then pumped through a coil in your cylinder
This transfers the heat to the water in your hot water cylinder
How much hot water can you get from thermal panels?
Solar thermal panels should provide most of your hot water from April to September, and make a worthwhile difference during the winter months.
All in all you can expect solar thermal panels to contribute about half of your hot water needs.
A solar thermal system works by conducting the heat energy contained within sunlight to a heat transfer fluid within a solar collector which in turn exchanges its heat energy to the main heating system.
The two most common forms of solar collectors are flat plate collectors and evacuated tubes with the latter being the most efficient.
