Solar Thermal Hot Water
Solar Thermal systems involve panels which generate free hot water, using the energy of the sun. Solar thermal is suitable for domestic or commercial use. The technology can be used in conjunction with boilers, heat pumps and wood burners, as an effective way of reducing reliance on expensive fossil fuels. It is a tried and tested technology and has been in use in the UK since the 1950's, being particularly well suited to our climate.
The benefits of solar thermal
- Generate up to 60% of your domestic hot water for free: A well designed solar thermal system, depending on your location, will typically produce up to 100% of your domestic hot water during the summer (averaging at 60% throughout the year).
- Free energy from the sun for at least 20 years: Once installed, a solar thermal system will operate with minimal running costs and will continue to deliver free energy from the sun for 20 years, as a minimum.
- Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels: Using the energy from the sun decreases reliance on gas, coal and oil, thereby protecting you from rapidly rising fuel bills, as well as reducing harmful carbon emissions.
£300 grant available
There is currently a grant of £300 available towards the cost of installing a solar thermal system. This is through the Renewable Heat Incentive Premium Payment scheme. Please click here for further details.
The Sungift Approach
The design and configuration of solar thermal systems is critical for achieving optimal performance and greatest energy savings. Equally, sizing a system requires an in-depth analysis of a site's current and future energy requirements and an understanding of the best way to integrate the specialist components with an existing plumbing configuration. This is why our in-house Design Team work closely with our experienced engineers to ensure that we provide the best solution for your individual needs. SunGift Solar are also expert at installing solar thermal panels, having specialised in them since we started operating in 2005.
