- Solar hot water panels also known as solar thermal panels when installed in homes across Ireland and Northern Ireland can provide between 50-70% of the annual domestic hot water requirements. These systems also known as solar water heating systems , and consist of a solar panel (solar collector either flat plat or evacuated) to capture the suns energy, accessories such as controller, pump, pipework, which take the energy from the solar panel to a solar hot water cylinder, where the energy is pumped through the heating coils in the cylinder and used to heat the water.
The benefits of solar water heating
- Hot water throughout the year.The system works all year round, though you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
- 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.Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
