solar water heating

Solar water heating systems, or 'solar thermal' systems, use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water.Solar water heating systems use solar panels, called collectors, fitted to your roof. These collect heat from the sun and use it to heat up water which is stored in a hot water cylinder. A boiler or immersion heater can be used as a back-up to heat the water further to reach the temperature you want.

The benefits of solar water heating

heater during the winter months.

Reduced energy bills

Reduced energy bills. Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the
initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.


Lower carbon footprint

Lower carbon footprint. Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating
system and can reduce your carbon dioxide
