Solar Heating For your Hot Water
Reduce your hot water bill by installing safe, clean solar heating.
Electricity costs are rising because the current electricity supply is generated from traditional energy sources such as oil, gas, coal. These sources face a number of challenges which helps push up the price. An alternative source of electricity or heat is from the sun.
It’s natural and it will always be there.
Did you know that up to 70% of your annual hot water can come from solar heating?
The sun shines every day. It’s true, even in Ireland when it’s raining, it’s still bright. And it’s this brightness that powers a solar heating system.
There are many different types of solar heating. We mostly install solar vacuum tube collectors as they have proved themselves time and again to be the most efficient method of generating solar hot water whatever the weather. We also install solar flat plate panels more expensive and less gains than tubes.
This is how it all works. Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse sunlight into useful heat using a solar collector. Each collector consists of a highly insulated water manifold and a row of tubes. The vacuum within each tube provides the perfect insulation to protect the system against the elements – rain, wind, snow. This vacuum insulation also ensures that the energy collected from the sun is very efficiently and effectively transferred into usable heat as there is minimal heat loss.
After the initial cost of installing your solar heating, there is no additional costs to you to have an always-on hot water system in your home.
