All you need to know about Solar Heating

What is Solar Heating?

Solar Water Heating is established to be one of the most efficient, sustainable and cost-effective sources of heating water. It is a renewable energy gathered from a free resource, the sun, and aside from the initial installation and maintenance costs there are no other fees or bills and a properly designed solar system can provide up to 70% of your annual hot water requirements.

How does Solar Heating Work?

Solar collectors are the main elements of a Solar Water Heating System and are usually positioned on a south facing roof. They absorb and utilise the heat from the sun to offset the water heating demand. Collectors are connected to a solar cylinder, solar pump station and controllers to co-ordinate the process and deliver heat automatically to the cylinder using a special solar coil.
