Solar Thermal Advantages

A huge advantage to Solar Thermal is that you are using free energy! Solar energy is free and abundant. Solar Thermal is efficient. Approximately 80% radiation is turned into heat energy. They are cheaper to install than solar PV panels because you only need 2-3 panels, whereas solar PV panels a typical array might have 10-16.

Solar Thermal heating

Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy is available to a practically unlimited extent, it’s carbon neutral and free of charge. Modern heating systems can be combined with solar panels, making solar heating systems available for hot water heating, or to feed additional heat into the heating circuit.

Description

Solar thermal systems capture the free heat from the sun and use it to heat up water for use in the home. Panels on your roof absorb heat from the sun – they are known as the collector, the water in the panels heats up this hot water is pumped through a coil in your cylinder, which transfers the heat to the water in the cylinder. The great opportunities of the use of solar energy have long been recognised: Our tried and tested technology has proven itself over many years.
