Solar water heating can provide you with about a third of your hot water needs. The average domestic system reduces C02 by around 350kg per year and saves you money on your hot water bills.
Solar water heating systems use heat from the sun to work alongside your conventional water heater. The technology is well developed with a large choice of equipment to suit many applications.
Solar panels or collectors are fitted to your roof. They collect heat from the sun's radiation.
There are 2 main types of collector:
Flat plate systems - which are comprised of an absorber plate with a transparent cover to collect the sun's heat, or
Evacuated tube systems - which are comprised of a row of glass tubes, each contains an absorber plate feeding into a manifold, which transports the heated fluid.
A heat transfer system - uses the collected heat to heat water;
Hot water cylinder - stores the hot water that is heated during the day and supplies it for use later.
