Solar Thermal Systems Northern Ireland, Ireland. This system uses solar energy from the sun to heat domestic hot water in your home. Solar hot water panels go onto the roof of the home. Then a solar hot water storage tank is installed. Solar hot water panels are known as collectors. There are two types of collectors, Flat plate or Evacuated tubes. An engineer will look at your heating needs and help you choose which collector to use.
The solar panels collect solar energy from the suns rays. So Solar energy comes from the solar panels on the roof. It is then sent to a coil at the bottom of the solar hot water tank. Which then heats the water in the tank, and provides the hot water for the house. This system is know as solar hot water heating. It can supply between 50% to 70% of the heating needs for your domestic hot water.
