In the UK, to gain maximum advantage of the installation of a solar hot water system, the existing roof of your property should be south facing and the panels tilted 35 degrees from the horizontal.
Please contact us and we will arrange for one of our qualified surveyors to visit you home to carry out a free of charge, no obligation survey and advise you whether your home is suitable for this product.
The solar panels that are installed on the roof absorb the energy provided by daylight, so they work on both sunny and cloudy days.
Insulated pipework is connected from the panels on the roof to a hot water storage cylinder which is situated within your property. Heat is generated from the roof panels to the storage cylinder to provide hot water. As the hot water is used a sensor notes the drop in the water temperature and the solar heat is then pumped back into the cylinder to heat the water.
A Solar Hot water system will save you money by providing 50 to 70% of your properties annual hot water requirements.
Provide hot water all year round, however you may have to help heat the water further in the winter months from a secondary source such as your gas central heating boiler or immersion heater.
As solar energy is FREE you will be cutting your CO 2 emissions and reducing your carbon footprint, therefore improving the environment and SAVING money.
At Ashley and McDonough we only install the best quality materials available from our solar partners. All products that we install come with a 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee.
Although solar hot water systems require very little maintenance, we would recommend that an annual visual check is made of the system and a more thorough check after 3 years from installation. At this time it is recommended that the heat transfer fluid is replaced by our qualified engineers to ensure the system is working to full capacity.
The government has introduced this scheme to encourage people to use heat from renewable sources such as Solar Hot Water [Solar Thermal].
Further details on the Renewable Heat Incentive [RHI] can be found on both the Energy Savings Trust and DECC websites.
If you require any further information on Solar Hot Water [Solar Thermal] systems and incentives please contact us.
